The designer has created a selection of checkered patterns in multiple color palettes that coat the tables, chairs, and surface tops of Very Simple Kitchen’s culinary equipment. These fresh-colored tiles are made by artisans of La Pietra Compattata and can be produced in an array of chromatic variations.
‘Upon entering ‘ZDORA’, visitors will find themselves immersed in the ambiance of a special Italian lunch, recalled by the checkered pattern proposed in three color variations. The decoration covers all surfaces of tables, falling like a real tablecloth alongside the surface of the kitchen tops, which continues upwards to cover the entire wall, creating an immersive and enveloping atmosphere,’ notes Very Simple Kitchen.
The 2022 Edit Napoli fair ran between October 7-9 at the Complesso Monumentale di San Domenico Maggiore. Find out more about the program here.
