Eye-catching units from luxury kitchen brand.

HIGH-END kitchen brand Avani has unveiled its first collection – a clean and contemporary series of eye-catching units.

Created by Dror Benshetrit, founder of New York-based studio Dror, Avani’s inaugural Arc collection features lacquered doors and white Corian countertops juxtaposed against hand-rubbed white oak or walnut cabinets.

The centrepiece of the collection is a retractable island which slides in and out of the main wall unit, doubling as both a counter and a bar. Hide-away swivel tables and slide-out cooktop covers also provide flexibility within kitchen design.

Clean and contemporary: The Arc kitchen collection from Avani comes in gloss or matte finishes.

Gloss and matte finishes are available and the cabinets come in a choice of eight hand-rubbed stains. Arc is manufactured by Canadian company AyA Kitchens and Baths and is available throughout the USA and Canada.

Interdisciplinary design studio Dror was founded in 2002 and mixes architecture with interiors, products design and creative direction. The studio has made a name for itself working with clients such as Cappellini, Puma and Swarovski.

Upcoming Avani collaborations include projects with Johnson Chou and Scott Eunson. – AFP Relaxnews
