From the designer: Based on the idea that the kitchen is the heart of a home, Lukstudio created a culinary village where kitchen appliances can be displayed in four domestic settings: alongside a gallery, in a cooking classroom, in a VIP lounge and in a multi-functional courtyard.

The design has transformed the original 1000-sqm mechanical floor into a complete brand experience for manufacturer Arda.

Situated by a reflective pool and framed by green walls, a white box marks the entrance of the journey. Following stepping stones in the shallow water, visitors enter a dark tunnel. On the left, an introductory video is accompanied by a water feature of dishwasher jets; on the right, a peek into the courtyards ahead. The main display area is organised as a series of white huts, each presenting an ideal kitchen: minimalistic white, total black, rustic country and modern American. Lukstudio has placed these volumes carefully, carving out strategic openings to create a visual dialogue with one’s movement.
