Kitchen Lab #2 Akis Petretzikis
With the ongoing success of Chef Akis Petretzikis, the first Kitchen Lab needed to expand in order to accommodate the needs in hand. This is the reason we designed and built the new Kitchen Lab. As we always try to be innovative, we didn’t duplicate the successful style we implemented in the first Kitchen Lab and we tried something different. If there is one style that celebrates humility, practicality and affordability, then it is surely the industrial style. This is a style that is all about raw textural beauty at its diverse best. In simpler terms, just think of concrete walls and rough surfaces while planning for an industrial kitchen. Key feature to the proper aesthetic is achieved with the lasting value of exposed steel surfaces and the right flooring, which elevate the kitchen to a whole new level. It goes without saying that picking the right decor and accessories that fit in with the style goes a long way in getting the job done. But beyond the obvious, it is all about giving your kitchen a distinct personality that reflects your own taste, instead of going down the generic path. Another think about industrial kitchens that intrigued Akis Petretzikis, is that they can easily incorporate commercial range appliances without loosing their stylishness. For us, embracing the industrial look is all about finding a balance between modern refinement and edgy overtones that the style delivers. This curated fusion between both the styles works absolutely beautifully, and you can tone up or down the level of raw, industrial beauty that you want in the kitchen by just adding or removing a few decor pieces over time.
