It is rare that we consider kitchen cabinetry to be an additional source of light, but that may just be the defining characteristic of these compositions from Leicht, Germany. Recessed spot and down-lighting is maximized by the reflective nature of high gloss lacquering and aluminum shelving, which is incorporated into a clean, modular aesthetic that lends itself to the covert demands of kitchen storage. Leicht also demonstrates a willingness to experiment with bold colors, either in the application of lacquered segments or in feature walls that serve as a dramatic backdrop for the units, and whether you love or hate it, it certainly contributes to the individuality of the space.
Finally, this dramatic burgundy and black combination offers an alternative to a palette that is more commonly associated with kitchens. However, such a combination relies heavily on the greater space to provide the necessary natural light, which is why it is best suited to the setting pictured here.
