ASA-D2: A Modular, Freestanding Outdoor Kitchen

Brown Jordan Outdoor Kitchens recently partnered with global countertop and architectural surface brand Cosentino on ASA-D2, a modern, freestanding kitchen for the outdoors. The modular design is the brainchild of architect and designer Daniel Germani, who incorporated Dekton by Cosentino, stainless steel cabinetry by Brown Jordan Outdoor Kitchens, and a grill by Caliber Appliances for a durable and dynamic outdoor kitchen you’ll want to use all year long.


With outdoor living on the rise, it’s only natural that homeowners long for designs that rival those inside the home. ASA-D2 brings a level of sophistication that’s been missing in outdoor kitchens and with the use of Dekton’s innovative surface materials, you’re getting one that not only benefits from its superior design, but its performance also. Dekton is super low maintenance, resists stains and scratches, UV resistant, and absorbs very little water, making it the perfect material for a design-focused, outdoor kitchen. On top of that, Brown Jordan Outdoor Kitchens has an innovative powder-coat process that allows them to customize their stainless steel cabinets to mimic the patterns of the Dekton countertops.


From Germani:

This collaboration with Dekton and Brown Jordan Outdoor Kitchens was a blast. I was tired of the same old boring, “dude” barbecues. Introducing a “furniture feel” to a very utilitarian piece was my number one goal. ASA-D2 is an “outdoor kitchen” that is flexible, light, modular, extremely durable and resilient to the elements without leaving out the design aspect out of the equation. My customer is someone who enjoys design, loves entertaining outdoors and has a blast grilling in a sexy outdoor kitchen while, maybe just maybe, drinking a dirty martini with 3 blue cheese olives.


ASA-D2 is available in four of Dekton’s colors: Trilium (an aged and oxidized steel look), Spectra (a solid, shiny black), Aura (a replica of Calacatta marble), and Halo (a soft white hue with a high-gloss finish). ASA-D2 made its debut during the 2017 Kitchen and Bath Industry Show.
