Mal Corboy kitchen with Smeg

High impact


Contemporary architecture requires a kitchen to match. The new owners of this ultra-modern concrete house in the city commissioned designer Mal Corboy to come up with a kitchen that would tick all the boxes for looks and functionality.

"The original kitchen occupied the rear wall only, so we introduced a long island to provide more work space and storage," says Corboy. "All the cabinetry is in glossy black lacquer, offset by Laminam ceramic benchtops, with a black totara butcher's block and decorative glass splashback."

"We researched several options for the appliances before settling on Smeg," says Corboy. "These appliances are exactly what was needed – the contemporary styling works with the kitchen, and they meet all the owners' cooking requirements."

The kitchen features a Smeg 70cm induction hob, 90cm power pack ventilation unit, 60cm Linea pyrolytic oven, 45cm steam oven and an integrated dishwasher.

Special features of the Smeg pyrolytic oven include an automatic cleaning function and quadruple glazing on the door. The induction hob incorporates the latest technology, providing extremely fast, energy-efficient cooking. The Smeg combination steam oven is another valuable addition – food keeps its flavour, form and nutrients, and is especially succulent.
