Hanami takes inspiration from Japanese minimalist culture, in particular the concept of shoji walls, typical of the Japanese "washitsu" room. Japan is famous for its gardens and especially for the cherry blossoms; a natural spectacle that is admired and contemplated in its utter simplicity and beauty. The word "Hanami", chosen to christen the new kitchen, embodies these concepts.
The project is characterized by vertical and horizontal protruding elements which are continued on the front and sides. The handle disappears amongst these elements, and the visual spectacle is defined by the repeated module rather than its component or functional parts. The handle and the vertical profiles are not a decoration or appendix, but an integral and functional part of the project. This is also made possible by the three-dimensional movement of the elements that create contrasts of empty and full.
