It’s so satisfying cleaning up a brick wall, especially when it becomes a beautiful warm colour and natural light falls on it for most of the day. We decided to work with hot milled steel on this kitchen, inspired by a large Boffi mirror, which is just out of shot. A 12 mm anthracite porcelain top and black sink and tap tone with the steel. The result is a work station that sits discreetly as a home to the classic La Faema coffee machine. Not so many years ago the photocopier provided a place to chat and socialise but here it is now, the coffee station - human behaviour patterns!
