Very Simple Teklan Edition.

When we met Swedish Designer Tekla Evelina Severin, the seed was sown for a beautiful and extremely colourful relationship to blossom. An unique Very Simple Kitchen collection defined by Severin’s signature approach to pigment and contrast and by Scandinavian and Italian design sensibilities.

On the occasion of Milan Design Week 2021, we presented an exclusive collaboration with Swedish interior designer Tekla Evelina Severin.

The project is inspired by the exchange of cultures starting with a profound reflection on the history of Italian and Swedish architecture. The result is two entirely handcrafted and sustainable Made-in-Italy products.

The starting points for both kitchen models are the marble worktops, the first characterised by a striking combination of white Carrara and black Marquina marble, arranged vertically to create a uniquely striped effect recalling Romanesque and Gothic architecture. To balance out these traditionally Italian elements, Tekla has opted for a mustard yellow finish for the kitchen modules, a typical shade of Swedish architecture chosen to soften their severity and create a warm and welcoming environment.

Starting from a Tekla suggestion, the second kitchen model is defined by a sophisticated combination of Portugal pink and Levanto red marble —a second reference to Italian artistic tradition. With a constant focus on sustainability, we employed the work of master craftsmen to recover waste marble and produce both kitchens worktops. Despite its second life, the material retains its full naturalness and all the characteristics that derive from it, including the continuous maturation of the product and the ability to restore it like new.

The result is a timeless collection vibrant in both concept and colour. With simplicity, attention to detail and creative soul, Very Simple Kitchen finds a perfect match with Tekla’s personality, establishing an unprecedented and functional partnership between Italy and Sweden.
