Based on the symbol and origins of the Ying and Yang icon, the kitchen is designed around the idea of two opposites that unite to create a whole. In this case the two opposites are based around hot and cold; the hob and cooking areas signify heat and a certain degree of caution, whereas the opposite side denotes tranquillity with the sink and cooling appliances. Representing the dots on the symbol, the circular hob and sink both have an identical diameter of 52cm. Echoing the curvaceous shapes, the Elica Star Extractor fan suspended above was chosen for its circular shape and sumptuous design – £1956 ($3,833 approx) . Using only the highest quality materials and integrating appliances that were built to perform, the Ying & Yang Kitchen is truly unique. With a two metre diameter, the kitchen is specifically designed to house standard 600mm appliances in both halves. Imaginatively designed to create the illusion that it is floating off the floor, the supporting parts of the units are set far back from the exterior edge. Giving a superior purity of colour as well as demonstrating at least equal qualities to granite, 150mm Okite worktops were chosen to complement the Wenge wood of the units. Maintaining the functional needs of the kitchen, soft closing doors and ample storage are also built in as standard.
