JennAir, the luxury appliance brand, known for pushing the industry forward with its provocative design, quiet offerings and connected appliance suite, has once again returned to Modernism Week – this time in collaboration with design expert and Emmy-nominated TV host, Bobby Berk, on his most personal project to date, Casa Tierra.
«Since 2015, this home has been a dream of mine. Although I’ve designed and worked on multiple homes throughout previous Modernism Week showcases, this project has a special place in my heart – said Berk. While designing this home, I wanted the appliances to break boundaries, rather than fit the standard kitchen design mold. That’s what drew me to JennAir – their appliances are bold but opulent, allowing the homes’ dynamic design to make no sacrifice in the kitchen.»
In collaboration with Ferguson, Bath, Kitchen & Lighting Gallery, and designed by Berk and interior designer, Paula Oblen, Casa Tierra is a fusion of classic Mid-Century Spanish and modern luxury design. Every inch of the picturesque, yet welcoming home thoughtfully brings in new life while preserving its original characteristics, right down to the appliances.
In the kitchen, a JennAir induction cooktop lives beneath an original terracotta roof overhang. The brand also provided other appliances, such as the RISE™ double wall oven, built-in microwave drawer, dishwasher, and counter depth exterior dispensing refrigerator. Moreover, the main house, poolside bar, and its two casitas are equipped with JennAir RISE™ under counter beverage centers and wine cellars.
«As we returned to Modernism Week for another year, we were excited to showcase how JennAir designs fit any vision of progressive luxury on display at the festival. Our appliances give designers like Bobby Berk the creative freedom to design outside the lines, as brought to life in the marriage of JennAir appliances and the desert aesthetic at Casa Tierra» – said Chelsey Whitehead, director of product and brand marketing of JennAir.
