Explaining why the Scavolini company created Formalia Outdoor, the first kitchen designed for the outdoors unveiled by the company at the last Salone, CEO Fabiana Scavolini says: “There’s growing interest today in more liveable outdoor spaces, and that includes kitchens designed for the outdoors: not just simple barbecue stations but dynamic, multifunctional structures that make spending time together outdoors more enjoyable”.
“An extension of Vittore Niolu’s Formalia collection, Formalia Outdoor retains all of the indoor design’s hallmarks: shaped doors with fitted handles, and the Status Wall System, a modular, exposed structure made out of aluminium. Drawing on nineteen modular elements that combine with the latest generation of appliances, every configuration of Formalia Outdoor is a one-off, designed to fit into any type of outdoor space and adapt to different furnishing styles.”
The Scavolini Green Mind project showcases the company’s commitment to enhancing environmental sustainability across its output. “When we were designing Formalia Outdoor, we paid great attention to choosing materials that not only ensure high performance but express refined design,” says the CEO. “Aluminium frames and tops with integrated washing areas, available in both steel and other materials, may be combined with two different door and frame finishes: steel, or outdoor-performance-grade plywood in a teak veneer. Both solutions are resistant to moisture, weather, temperature changes, and wear and tear. And let’s not forget, steel and aluminium are both 100-percent recyclable materials.”
When it comes to sustainability, Scavolini obtained CQP Product Circularity certification, attesting to 96 percent product circularity. The company uses FSC®-C168055-guaranteed raw materials, confirming that they come from forests managed in full respect of the environment and their local societies, and are economically sustainable.
