A Stainless Steel Kitchen Designed for At-Home Chefs

Architect Alberto Torsello is the design brain behind Abimis kitchens, a design that will bring a chef’s kitchen to your own home. The kitchens are handmade in Italy and constructed entirely of stainless steel that’s impact resistant, meaning if you ram a stool into a lower cabinet, it won’t ding. The surface is orbitally polished to help make scratches and marks difficult for the eye to see, while also warming up the typical bright look of the shiny material.


Torsello, with the help of Prisma, honed in on the five phases that every chef works through – conserving, preparing, cooking, presenting, and washing – and properly organized the kitchen to make each step efficient, just like in a professional set-up. Beyond the superior function of the Abimis kitchen is the clean and sleek look of each component.


In Abimis kitchens, ergonomics are key so every element is scrutinized and worked out to make it easy to use. The countertops come with a non-drip edge to prevent spillage onto the floor.


Internal and external joints are welded and rounded for safety and hygiene.


Storage compartments are fully sealed and come with deep pull-out shelves for extra storage space. The pans and trays come in standard sizes so they can be moved from the storage units to the fridge, sink, or oven.
