Alluring, uncluttered, congruous, made-to measure: Umami’s identity reflects a manner of living that inhabits a variety of worlds and homes — all equally unique. Its Japanese name can be translated as “pleasant, savory taste” and, indeed, its essence is all about savoring a whole new feeling which opposes trendy, punitive minimalism in design.
Just as everyday bits of joy fit together, resulting in a unique, fulfilling life as a whole, Umami’s parts seamlessly integrate to build heartwarming cooking experiences. Its visual composition naturally captures the eye. Its anatomy is imbued with a discreet, wisely-considered approach to culinary exploration, furthering our ever-important quest for togetherness and harmony.
Freedom in space
The kitchen was born by pushing the boundaries of domestic design, in an audacious and devoted quest for preserving elegance in practicality, whatever the volumes of the target environment.
In fact, while most contemporary kitchens struggle to fit into new ambiances with their monolithic aesthetics and sizes, Umami’s architecture will seamlessly suit both tiny, massive or awkward spaces, releasing you from transportation and assembling issues and imparting that bespoke feel you were after. Among the joys of new cabinetry, you will experience, of course, having space available for storing things your way — space to be improved for more dynamic use with custom solutions, like smart organizers and dividers.
Umami’s components are beautifully engineered to keep the kitchen calm and clutter-free and, at the same time, accommodate all working needs. That is why, besides realizing the whole furniture, we provide on request the finest cutlery as well as sets of knives, plates, pots, and all the accessories you need. We integrate pantry cabinets with pull-out trays and liners to improve practicality. Also, you will always be just a foot away from popping a bottle of perfectly chilled, well-deserved Champagne: the customizable wine cellar can reach the sizes of a seductive walk-in closet, ready to highlight your personal taste. The internal lighting of the glass doors features vertical LED profiles, synchronized to the glass door opening.
With Umami, containing, cooling, preparing, washing, and conserving flawlessness is guaranteed by a rational layout of the cabinets and the electrical appliances, as well as by respecting proportions and properly mixing materials. From the components to the fixtures and finishes, everything is made to work well, look great, and provide natural, overhead, and task lighting. For home automation lovers who want to go the extra-mile, we will install a domotic system that allows you to create personalized functioning scenarios that can be modified at any moment. This smart integration increases energy efficiency, improves appliance functionality, and gives insights into your daily habits to help you follow the way of life you desire.
The Perfect Fit
There is something desirably authentic in working in a kitchen made according to your palate; in fact, it often turns out to be the ultimate secret ingredient to cook a delicious meal — both for professional and personal satisfaction. Umami comes in several wood essences; its hinges and handles are built in different metal finishing, all designed and manufactured by Lorenzo Tondelli. Find out what the perfect fit feels like.
Sometimes, one size doesn’t fit all: this is where imagination comes into play. If you are dreaming of something that is truly yours, we will take care of it - from start to finish. Because this is not about just embossing initials into leather or cloth: it’s about satisfying a keen wish for originality and comfort.
