We are supporters of the German designer Katrin Arens, an Italian-based master of old and new, for some time. Arens, who is both a furniture and interior designer by profession, has been revitalizing the throwing of materials with her furniture, kitchen and object designs for more than 20 years – long before the trend towards waste wood began to emerge.
Today we present a kitchen that Arens designed for her favorite customers: a Florentine family, producer of wine and olive oil in Tuscany, with whom Arens has been working for almost 15 years. (“They want individual solutions and fully trust my designs – so they’re the perfect customer,” she says.) Arens used original wood from one for the family holiday home in Sardinia, which offers a panoramic view of the port of Porto Cervo Reconstruction of the 1768 Angelo Mai library in Bergamo, near Milan. After minimal treatment, she combined it with stainless steel and new wood, as required for a practical, eye-catching design that could not be achieved in any other way.

Another advantage of using old wood? His character. “Even in the new use, you can see the life of the previous story,” says Arens.
