As the contemporary kitchen continues to evolve toward ever cleaner lines and less cluttered contours, one might be forgiven for asking, what’s next? A kitchen of concrete? Why yes, in fact, as Modulnova’s Twenty Cemento kitchen features a stunning finish of “liquid concrete” that leaves both center island and tall cupboards with the cool, smooth, and unmistakably industrial look of poured concrete.

Modulnova’s Twenty Cemento Kitchen Is the Latest in Industrial Chic
Of course, this isn’t your grandfather’s cement finish, or even your father’s. Modulnova’s advanced resin technology allows the cabinets to be coated in a 3mm layer of liquid concrete: “the coating dries to a silky smooth, durable finish and is intriguingly cool to the touch but with warm natural stone tones.”
Indeed, the Twenty Cemento finish doesn’t evoke pedestrian pathways but rather the impressive synthesis of industrial technology and Modern aesthetics that one might find among the archives of the Bauhaus—had they the technology, they certainly would have devised a similar look and feel for this most complicated of interior spaces.
Nor does Twenty Cemento stop at the liquid concrete finish. Rather, its texture and tone is matched within every nook, throughout every cranny of this contemporary kitchen: feel it in the cantilevered, brushed oil wooden breakfast bar; see it in the flawless function of the sliding internal cupboards and drawers; hear it in the pleasant plash of water into the black granite Nero Assoluto sink.
It seems that every facet of this chic industrial style kitchen is primed to please. For all aficionados of the supple and smooth, the cool and clean, the fashionable and functional, Modulnova’s Twenty Cemento kitchen cannot fail to please.
About the Manufacturer: The design inclinations of the Presotto family stretch back to 1949, when they began making hand-crafted furniture with a distinctively modern aesthetic. Formalized in 1988 as Modulnova S.r.l, the company continues along the same lines, aspiring to “craft increasingly innovative furniture both materials-wise and as far as productive systems are concerned, and to bring about a creative type of design, featuring essential lines.” Modulnova’s is especially known for the sophistication, style, and avant garde aesthetic of their modular kitchens.
