Snaidero's Frame kitchen by Iosa Ghini

Eurocucina 2016: Snaidero's FRAME Kitchen by Iosa Ghini Design

One of three models presented by Snaidero and architect Massimo Iosa Ghini at Eurocucina 2016, FRAME is a market-ready project that gives the kitchen space a very distinct mood.


The core lines of FRAME are simple and contemporary but the design also manages to include industrial and classical influences in an interesting mix of styles. As a result, the kitchen can fit easily into any environment, be it a completely modern setting, a more traditional home, or a casual loft-like space with vintage decor.

The main feature of the project (and the one that sets the rhythm for the entire design) is a steel frame that supports and connects all the elements. The frame gets exposed here and there - in the wall and base units, in the pantry and the island – creating a visual play of full and empty spaces.

The frame of the cabinet doors echoes the structure and provides a classical touch, while the handle-free nature of the door openings keeps the design modern. The available cabinet finishes can also help skew the design towards the more classic (Elm wood) or the more contemporary (matte and micalized lacquers).  

Frame kitchen and hood detail


The structure that hosts the extractor hood creates a continuum with the steel frame of the design and becomes the focus point of the kitchen. The hood is available in 180 cm, 120 cm and 90 cm and can be wall mounted or placed over the island. All the stainless steel modular elements are designed using simple welding and brushing processes, for an “unpolished” look that adds character and has low environmental impact.

After its official unveiling at Eurocucina 2016, FRAME will be available in North America, Central America and the Caribbean through Snaidero USA later this spring.
