Art of Work

Hand-carved tribal motifs decorate the cabinet frame; pyrographed patterns tattoo the door panels; a bushhamered texture finishes the stone counter tops. These details typify the aesthetic that gives the aptly-named SineTempore kitchen its character. Gabriele Centazzo designed the system, which makes a powerful statement for original expression and craftsmanship in an assembly-line world. I find it's a curious—and ultimately appealing—blend of primitive and progressive.
