Cucinoteca opens in Ancona (Le Marche_Italy); it’s a crossover (multi-functional) space that links a series of activities in the food industry Cooking lessons, showcooking and cultural events about food and beverages take place in the in the laboratory, which is also specialized in selling tools and objects for chefs and connoisseurs.
Simone Subissati Architect’s project is inspired by two main ideas: Memory and Game. Point of reference are kitchen spaces of rural memory that used to include various activities: from food preparation and consumption to a convivial-friendly moment with family and guests.
Each element has their own playful dimension:
the kitchen is between the creative acts of adults that which is closer to a game, for this reason it’s the heart of the creative and recreational moments
of the household.The extendable kitchen table in ash wood is enhanced by functions thanks to accessories and integrated pop-up elements. The table, an anti-technological quirk, is the centre of the project.
