If all these bright colors aren’t your thing, Scalvolini makes more streamlined kitchen designs too, like the beautiful Motus system:

“In this composition with Tundra Grey gloss lacquered doors for base units and cupboards and Prestige White gloss lacquered doors for the wall units, the “Fluida” wall system is used to create open fronted units as the perfect trait d’union with the living room. The lines of the snack top, the shaping of the drawer and the opening mechanisms used for the doors are all musts that define the elegant, unique style of the project.”
