Aria, a kitchen prototype presented by Snaidero at Eurocucina 2016, received the Good Design Award, the prestigious international tribute assigned by the Chicago Athenaeum Museum of Architecture to designers and manufacturers who have come up with innovative concepts or original ideas which go beyond normal product and design standards. The Italian company, that has been awarded thirteen times with this important recognition, this time received it for a very innovative project in the field of kitchen design. Aria features sleek lines – an hallmark of Pininfarina projects – and technological solutions developed from experience in the nautical and automobile sector. The kitchen doors have undergone a special Polysil coating treatment made with nano-molecules that makes them cool and velvety to the touch, but it also provides them with other relevant properties: scratchproof, dirt-repellent and anti-fingerprint. But the most significant detail is the lamp ring which lights the work area from above: made from polycarbonate with an innovative rapid prototyping method based on 3D printing technology, it uses a led lighting system with low energy consumption.
