Our client, a Creative Director in the skateboarding world, was looking for a kitchen and powder room filled with texture and life, and a showcase to exhibit a finely curated collection of art in all forms. What emerged from the collaboration is a kitchen that is a sculpture in itself, modern and masculine.
The wall of plywood shelving which frames the forested site was designed by bright designlab - executed by the fine carpenters at Hammer & Hand. The kitchen cabinets are ebonized wood in which you can still see the texture of the woodgrain below the inky surface, accented by sleek brass pulls, open light wood shelving with brass brackets and a quartz top. The custom peninsula has a black Western Walnut top and legs over a plywood base with a black pipe footrest. The Bertoia barstools were part of the client's own collection.
In the Powder room, the black and white graphic is a hand-screened water-based ink wallcovering. The design was created by one of the client's friends, a champion LA based artist. We're not divulging who at this point, but the hint is in the mix. The wall hung faucet unlacquered brass and a solo pendant adds to the moody vibe.
