B2-Kitchen-Kitchen Tool Cabinet

German manufacturer Bulthaup’s B2 kitchen workshop (above) is the perfect disguise for the home cook. The kitchen implement cabinet is outfitted with multiple compartments to store accouterments from pots and pans to pantry items. Adjustable shelves, formatted containers, and storage systems all fit uniformly behind the folding doors. It works in a loft, studio, or office environment.

Boffi has re-introduced one of their iconic kitchens, the Xila 09 originally designed by Luigi Massoni in 1972. It was the first kitchen system void of any detailing such as handles or drawers. Its sleek architectural appeal enforces the modular design while functioning as cooktop, counter, work surface, or bar. Xila is available in a selection of Boffi finishes including marble, granite, wood, or stainless steel.

Gamma, Arclinea’s latest kitchen system can be formatted to fit any size space. And if you’ve got a wine collector client, who likes to show off, the linear design features a white laminate satin door system called Vina&Dispensa that can accommodate a pantry and refrigerating wine storage system. The pantry includes multiple pullout drawers and a sliding door with floor-to-ceiling glides and handle.
