“Why Learn?

Why should you keep on learning? You have a college degree, maybe a terminal degree such as MBA or Ph.D. You have a job that you know how to do and you’re good at it. You get a regular paycheck, and, if you’re lucky, have a long-term contract and stock options. Other than your supplier’s new products and services, what is there left to learn?

Learning and work have merged. Izzy Justice, founder and CEO of EQMentor, Inc. writes: “…the successful working professional will not be the one who has accomplished a lot in the past, but the one who is constantly learning.” Whether it’s learning something new, unlearning something old, or learning how to learn, all employees, from front-line technicians to C-suite executives, need to make learning part of their jobs.”

What to learn more about kitchens? Never too late to enroll:

We have studied our kitchens with a curved and smooth design, in the sign of ergonomics, to guarantee freedom of movement and to optimize spaces, giving more capacity to the elements.

City’s sinuous design is: actual and elegant in all laminates to choose between 11 high gloss and 13 matt finishes. City is characterized by curved cabinets and diagonal elements solving any kitchen’s layout problem


The design trend without sharp edges characterizes the Fiamberti style; it makes movement  free optimizing the space in respects safety of ergonomics and of the high aesthetical value.
So it is Rolly which, thanks to the wide choice of materials for the worktops and to the wide choice of the material for the doors, complies with everyone’s taste: classical, creative and of trend.

The Israel-based Segment development company combines aluminum with different materials to create a series of unique profiles that enable facade designs that are ever changing and fit perfectly to their client’s vision. One of the many advantages of the segment is the wide variety of profiles that can be used for varying applications. These aluminum profiles are very strong and durable and fit perfectly to withstand outdoor conditions in nearly any climate. As such, they are also great for wet areas and indoor applications. Ideal for use on outdoor kitchens and furniture, these pieces are constructed from modular bodies made of aluminum, 15mm in thickness, combined with other materials like wood, terrazzo, resista and more. Together they provide a strong, durable product that offers complete design freedom.

Materiality is a Big Deal Now”: Aesop Seoul by Torafu Architects

Located in a cute single-storey street front building, Aesop wanted to inhibit the cultural vibe and intensity of the area’s lively Gyeongbokgung city palace.


The largest and most obvious example of this brief was the architect’s decision to retain the original ceiling, making a strong feature of its wooden truss. The building itself had undergone a number of renovations over its many years, and had accumulated a strange collection of incompatible materials, and while wanted Torafu to maintain this haphazard vibe, they also sought to find a consistent design element to tie it all together.


Consequently, the internal fixtures and fittings are stainless steel, with surfaces and tables taking on the same deep blue color as the building’s exterior. Sinks for consultations have been united with point-of-sale counters within a single unit found at the center of the store. A sprawling network of pipes above the table provides the water supply and lighting for the sink area, while simultaneously highlighting a striking piece of furniture.


The Aesop Effect means that materiality is no longer a ‘nice-to-have’ for our smaller scale clients, but is now a key necessity for their future growth and success. And we as an industry have a big responsibility in fulfilling this high level of expectation.
