Our Kitchens

Transcending the typical modernist kitchen, elements offers three distinct characteristics as part of its design vision:

  • Presents a more engaging form - motivates a sense of wonder and curiosity and makes one want to touch, explore and discover more about this kitchen
  • Utilizes negative space and innovative accessories - converts the typical way a cabinet functions into something different, unique and special
  • Versatility through modular design - makes elements easy to apply to any kitchen design or layout.

Some distinct design features include:

  • Creative fusion of materials (such as aluminum shelves with bamboo upper cabinets) in a special interlocking design
  • Doors and drawers are designed to open/close in unique and atypical ways compared to standard kitchen cabinets
  • Minimalist appearance of handles and pulls: some modules feature recessed hand-pull access to open drawers and cabinets on the corners
  • Some shelves adjoin each other at various levels and hyper-extend to provide a look that is distinctive, modern, and yet symmetrical
  • Upper shelf cabinets may be ordered with integrated drip-trays and rubberized plate holder rods for wash and store convenience
  • Selected main drawers and cabinet doors throughout the kitchen feature front panels which extend and wrap around corners to adjoin recessed side-panels. This provides a sophisticated and elegant look
  • Sliding translucent panel (various color/surface/accent finishes) attached to upper shelf cabinet allows selective concealment and easy access of items stored
