Boffi unveils "evolved" version of Zaha Hadid Design's Cove kitchen

Promotion: British studio Zaha Hadid Design has created an updated version of its sinuous Cove kitchen for Italian brand Boffi’s 90th anniversary that offers “the flexibility of a modular system”.

Made from mouldable materials including Corian and wood, the 2024 Cove kitchen has a sleek, sinuous shape.

It is a continuation of Zaha Hadid Design’s customisable island launched with Boffi in 2017, which was fitted in the firm’s 520 West 28th project that was then nearing completion in New York’s Chelsea neighbourhood.

The new Cove kitchen, which was designed for Boffi’s 90th anniversary, has been developed and no longer features a large cavity at the front that distinguished the earlier design.

Instead, the new model has two side panels with rounded corners and gently curve along downward peripheral edges.

“Coinciding with the 90th anniversary of Boffi – a brand epitomising Italian elegance, craftsmanship, and design integrity – the new piece evolves from the original Cove concept developed by Zaha Hadid Design in 2017,” Zaha Hadid Design said.

“Following the inherent logic of its predecessor whilst offering the flexibility of a modular system, this new iteration is laterally supported by two panels with rounded edges, both with identical sections, covering the entire side of the isle,” it added.

The 2024 Cove kitchen has a grey hued marbled countertop and slopes down to create a streamlined aesthetic. It will be available to buy after this year’s iteration of the annual Milan design week.

Boffi said its design came from the “visionary mind” of Zaha Hadid, the founder of the eponymous studio who passed away in 2016.

“The Cove kitchen stems from the visionary mind of Zaha Hadid and turns the work island into a convivial space that combines architectural rigour and a forward-looking concept,” the brand stated.

The design for the original Cove kitchen by Zaha Hadid Design was based on the studio’s famous MAXXI National Museum of XXI Century Arts in Rome and the Heydar Aliyev Center in Baku.

Boffi has worked with a number of well-known designers and architecture studios on its products. Previous examples include the Combine Evolution kitchen by Italian architect Piero Lissoni and a modular kitchen system by Spanish designer Patricia Urquiola.
