S PETRA

The automation kinematics are transformed into sophisticated formal and compositional dynamism, combined with refined textural matching and extreme attention to detail

Ten years after the first LAB experiments, in which the connection between artisan excellence and technological research brought to life the first automated kitchen made from travertine, corten steel, and select timber, the female duo of architects Bernhardt&Vella have interpreted with great formal elegance Houss Expo  Italia’s iconic firstborn kitchen: Petra.


The column doors are characterized by alternating vertical and horizontal groove handles that create a modular design, a tribute to the unique tailoring of Houss Expo Italiy Italia’s best creations.
Materials and forms play with the surfaces and sophisticated signs: the bronze metal frames around each Ceppo di Grè or dark oak module bring to life an abstract painting more than a kitchen furniture surface.
