We live at a time when kitchens are given against centre stage within our homes. Something Alberto Sanchez and MUT team just love.. “Cooking is certainly a pleasure, a leisure activity, something you share with your family and friends in your spare time, in the best companies” commented Alberto sanchez. Against this concept Float collection by Mut, arises as radically innovative proposal, hoping to return the kitchen its status as a fully habitat place.
Copper, Natural wood and Marble Wood are the hallmarks of MUT’s Float, five pieces of kitchen furniture characterized by simplicity; a kitchen island, a cupboard, a glass cabinet, a serving cart and a room devider. Each piece can be integrated in open spaces and “no longer obliges us to stare at the wall while cooking” says designer Sanchez.
“Materials such as metal, copper, natural wood or marble invade MUT’s new design for the brand Miraseditions. Together they speak a logical and simple language appealing to emotions, thus giving birth to luxury kitchens” commented Sanchez.
Based on a plain, sober and ecologically sustainable design, Float consists of five pieces of furniture characterized by simplicity.
Under the motto ‘cooking is not an obligation, but a pleasure’, Floats opts for emotional experience: the kitchen becomes the heart of home living, it builds bonding, strengthens links and at the same time it evokes that time, not so long ago, when families gathered around the fire. And what’s best to get it back than a designer kitchen! An intimate environment, full of quality details, to share with beloved ones.
FLOAT relinquishes all of the technological excesses and breaks with the rigidity prevailing in modern kitchens: every piece is a detached, mobile island which can be integrated in open spaces and no longer obliges us to stare at the wall while cooking.
Float is a kitchen imbued with sensivity, but highly practical and functional. It’s rational but at the same time it’s possesses the beauty and sobriety of a unique artwork. Through its quality aesthetics, discreet and balanced, it seeks durability and timelessness while shunning fads or anything close to conventional.
The five pieces of furniture nourish from classicism, but aim to be innovative. Its removal drawers and trays provide access to utensil from both sides, thus making teamwork much easier. Together with the versatile cupboard, conceived to contain either High-Tech appliances or other objects, it creates a self sufficient kitchen that can be optionally completed with the rest of the pieces.
‘To generate a landscape naturally and consciously integrated into the living room. I wanted objects to work as a whole but I also wanted them to be independent, so ultimately the decision on how to combine them depends on the user’ says Alberto Sanchez, Mut’s creative spirit.
Two disused traditional pieces have been recovered for this purpose: the glass cabinet and the serving cart. Half way between the living room and the kitchen, they bridge the gap between both spaces, while the room divider helps delimitate but without lifting actual barriers.
All these elements have been handcrafted in Spain. Even the smallest details have been lavished with care and attention.
Float was born out of the will to create hybrid pieces of furniture, able to comfortably adjust either to the kitchen or the living room and it is the result of a strenuous research, analysis and strategy work with the aim of creating an exclusive and personal collection.
