The Opera Kitchen: Snaidero and Michele Marcon Design create the contemporary practical kitchen

The latest kitchen from Snaidero has some large scale thinking at its heart… 

The Opera kitchen from Italian brand Snaidero is described by its manufacturer as a ‘modern classic’, marrying a highly contemporary style with a practical use of space.

Designed by Michele Marcon Design, the kitchen has been designed to maximise functional storage space with highly organised interiors and a flexible approach to layout options. It has been conceived on a large scale, with a vertical space of up to 274cm and wall units that can be specified in widths of up to 240cm.

The kitchen is characterised by a particularly thick worktop. Available in various finishes including stainless steel and solid surface, it measures up at a sizable 17cm. Its form is further defined by prominent handles which are intended to be an important aspect of the overall aesthetic.

Materials are at the very centre of the concept however, and Opera plays with a wide range of available choices from melamine-faced, laminated, polished and matt lacquered surfaces to refined options of metallic or wood finishing. There are over 120 individual options in total.
