Retro Contemporary Kitchens by DeVOL
Architecture & Interiors
The UK furniture studio deVOL has created a series of handsome kitchen furniture suites inspired by Mid-Century design. The company’s Air Kitchens series, which they’ve fittingly labeled ‘retro contemporary,’ features islands, working surfaces and appliance cabinets which look to “vintage automobile construction, the hulls of working boats and the iconic Airstream caravan” for their exquisitely crafted, gracefully curved profiles. Exactingly composed of wood and single-color solid panels, each piece in the series is devoid of visible hardware and ornamentation, contributing to a supremely refined, cohesive kitchen statement. deVOL’s Air Kitchens look at once vintage, yet thoroughly contemporary—which, of course, is precisely the point.
