Villa Lumos

In Sweden, in a magnificent villa dating back to the early twentieth century, in Tyresö, on the shores of the Stockholm Archipelago, Officine Gullo installed a stove from its Restart collection. The home-owners, thanks to the project by Refine Design Studio and Himlekok chose to renovate their entire property according to their family’s needs, desires and style.

Loving to cook and spending a lot of time in the kitchen, they wanted a kitchen that could be the true heart of the home and a family gathering place. The style chosen is a mix between country and industrial, with very careful choices of materials. It features shades blue – a recurring colour throughout the house – warmed by brass details.

The Restart kitchen perfectly matches the eclectic and elegant design of the house. It is painted in Graphite Grey with mat finish and burnished brass details to match the rest of the kitchen. The retro-style brass door embellishes the adjacent space, replicating a perfect blend of old-world charm with contemporary elegance. The appliance features a double oven, a main electric oven and a second mini-oven with grill and rotisserie and an induction hob. Above the hob one finds a custom-made hood made entirely of steel that reminds of the appliance colours, with elegant burnished brass edges that harmonise perfectly with the kitchen’s suspended light fixtures.

Natalie Strömberg, Interior Architect & Creative Director at Refine Design Studio, explains the kitchen project as follows:

“We wanted to create a rustic family kitchen with lots of space and luxury details. For the kitchen, the heart of the home, we wanted to harmonise the choice of materials and colours with the house’s location in the Stockholm archipelago, and we knew right away that shades of blue would be the best choice, especially in combination with the warmth of the brass details. Craftsmanship was the keyword in the creation of the entire kitchen. We wished to create a kitchen from scratch where each component would be unique and tailor-made for the client. We wanted to recreate a rural atmosphere in which the stove and hood would fit with the industrial look of the light fixtures suspended above the kitchen island.”

The stoves of the Restart collection are designed to fit into any kitchen and create unique environments. Each creation is exclusive and designed to meet the needs of the client, customisable in colours and finishes.
