In addition to having decisively influenced the logic that guides the development of work spaces, the concept of open space has characterized the most modern evolutions of various domestic environments, above all the kitchen and living room.
As much for reasons as for style and design of a space, the mix of the living area with the kitchen was one of the consequences of a revolution that has put functionality at the centre, leading to think of above all flexible environments open to different solutions.
Open space kitchens are transformed into places no longer dedicated entirely to operations but tend to sharing and conviviality, without giving up organization, always possible thanks to the presence of functional islands.
WHAT TO CONSIDER IN OPEN SPACES
The creation of an open space is particularly suitable for increasing the perception of dimensions, therefore in spaces that are not too large, and for increasing the brightness of the environment, giving the possibility to make the most of natural light for those who enjoy the right exposure.
Joining the kitchen and living room through an open space means designing this space for socializing and sharing, both between family members and with guests, who can participate in more conversations and activities without having to get around artificial barriers.
Finally, an open space is characterized by a constant openness to change: the presence of functional elements makes it possible to maximize the flexibility of the environment, simply by changing its position or type of use when needs change over time.
THE MOST SUITABLE MATERIALS AND COLORS WITH ARCLINEA
In the Arclinea philosophy, colors and materials have become a medium of introducing nature into the kitchen in an intelligent way.
In fact, nature is increasingly intertwined with matter too, thanks to the many finishes that aim to increase its naturalness, among which one stands out based on a steel coloring technique called PVD (Physical Vapor Deposition), which applies the evaporation of titanium molecules.
In this way, even steel can offer a warm and welcoming effect.
