Kitchen Covet | Curves in the Kitchen

  • est living joseph dirand dirand residence 1 750x540

    We continue exploring the timeless appeal of curves through a cross-section of standout kitchens from around the globe. 

    Where curves go, a sense of calm usually follows. This is certainly the case in the kitchen, where designers explore curves through different materials or kitchen elements such as the central island or cabinetry. We step inside seven kitchens that play with fluid shapes and soft edges to achieve a unique design resolution.

    Dirand Residence by Joseph Dirand

    In the most recent issue of est magazine, we stepped inside French architect Joseph Dirand’s own Paris kitchen. The revered architect stumbled across the vanilla-and-charcoal-coloured Breccia Stazzema marble five years before designing his kitchen, storing it away for just the right opportunity. The polished bullnose edges on the benchtop and detailing beneath reaffirm the beauty and solidity of the material.

    Twin Peaks by Workstead

    Twin Peaks by Workstead presents a design narrative aligned with its location: The Hudson Valley in New York. The new pavilion extension onto the 1860s home references the rounded forms found in old Eastlake homes, as seen in the kitchen. A two-toned palette of timber and granite accentuates the curves, where the timber veneer appears to wrap around the kitchen’s edges, highlighted by the cylindrical timber joinery handles.

    Ridgeway by Ha Architecture

    First appearing in our Black kitchens covet, the Ridgeway kitchen by Ha Architecture is a striking display of colour and form. The central island embraces an elongated curvaceous form, intuitive to the flow of movement in the space. Juxtaposed by a stone benchtop, the all-black cladding accentuates the island’s distinct shape. 

    Alexander House by Alexander & CO.

    Alexander House is the permanent home of Sydney-based interior design studio Alexander & CO. The studio commissioned Concrete Bespoke to craft a curved-edge kitchen island from pink concrete, referencing European forms and materials. Weighing 500kg, this custom masterpiece had to be craned into the kitchen.

    St Vincent’s Place by B.E. Architecture

    The stainless steel island in B.E. Architecture’s St Vincent’s Place kitchen reflects the shape of a barrelled wave. The curved island is a testament to how B.E Architecture brought the project to life through a unique collaboration of consultants, artists and design professionals.
