For an important event that brought the finest designers and architects together in the ARREDODUE showroom in Alte di Montecchio Maggiore (VI), Viale Trieste No. 56, Alpes created a kitchen consisting of:
a 190-cm island in which a top-mounted sink (art. A8-5133/1V1V8) was installed on the Corian® countertop;
a cooking block, again with a Corian® countertop, featuring a flip-up cooktop with five well-spaced aligned gas burners (art. R 100/5G). The flip-up cooktops won the 18th Compasso d'Oro for best design for their innovative and functional qualities. What distinguishes them is that they can be raised when the cooking is finished so that the space underneath is free to use.
