Eternit’s ‘camouflage‘ kitchen evokes the original application of the Eternit material, as it was primarily used as façade shingles.
destilat interprets the front of this kitchen as a façade with similar requirements regarding its material and look which are both perfectly met by Eternit: robust, durable surfaces with a top-quality appearance and comfortable haptics.
Furthermore, Eternit is a recyclable natural material and, last but not least, a locally produced Austrian invention and therefore a wonderful example of regional value creation.
Its many individual elements form a homogeneous overall appearance, just like a classic façade made of Eternit shingles.
The necessary horizontal divisions for pull-outs, drawers and recesses were all realised in a slightly slanted angle to the horizontal. This minimal design intervention transforms the dividing joints from a necessary evil to a formal expression with ornamental effect, creating a dynamic joint pattern that, in a sense, ‘camouflages’ the necessary joints.
