AyA Kitchens and Baths Launches CUBI - A Revolutionary Shelving Scheme Set to Transform Urban Living

 

"North America’s leading cabinetry manufacturer, AyA Kitchens and Baths (AyA), has launched a shelving revolution with the debut of CUBI. Designed in partnership with the Toronto-based architectura firm PARTISANS, the concept is a response to urban expansion and densification to maximize the potential of space. The modular shelving and space divider enhances livability and optimizes functionality through a series of sculptural, cubic geometries. Recognizing the individualistic nature of each homeowner, the units offer a multi-purpose and completely customized approach to storage, walls, benches, cooking and dining surfaces, and even trusses for planting or lighting.

"CUBI by AyA Kitchens and Partisans, Interior Design Show
Speaking simply, Cubi is an empty box. But it’s this simplicity that makes it ingeniously complex. A collaboration between custom kitchen maker Aya and Toronto architecture and design firm Partisans, the modular kitchen system is equal parts storage, shelving and room divider. As the team’s booth – which took first place in the 400-square-foot category – showcased in spectacular fashion, the flexible nature of the basic geometric form is endless. "

Get the Look: Moody, Modern Kitchen

 

"At the centre of this sleek, open-concept kitchen you’ll find something quite special: a custom-built island, part of which appears to be floating. It’s a space for sharing a meal with family and entertaining friends (and a visual anchor for the modern white-and-wood room)—and, in reality, it’s clever engineering, not magic, that keeps the four-inch-thick countertop afloat: a solid raw metal beam runs through the whole island to support it all."

Why a multipurpose kitchen is the best kind of kitchen

 

"It is by Aya Kitchens in Toronto, a mix of Arlington and Manhattan doors. The symmetrical, cohesive design is anchored by tall units that conceal the fridge as well as storage. We love the brick in the room and wanted something that would look great with it. We chose this satiny black cabinetry because we didn’t want the room to look like a kitchen; we wanted it to look like an office."

Dror develops double-duty ARC kitchen system for AVANI

 

"unveiled on the occasion of the toronto interior design show, dror’s ‘ARC collection’ is a transformative cabinetry system that offers integrated details such as pull-less doors and hidden appliance garages that assist in optimizing one’s space. the design takes its namesake from its feature element, an arc-like island made from Corian® that double-functions as a counter and bar, which when not in use, can be retracted into the main wall unit, thus further maximizing functionality and overall occupiable living area. additionally, a sleek aesthetic is continued through the stained rift cut white oak cabinetry. "

"The kitchen comes with a little extra something: this pullout cutting board, set into the drawer above the dishwasher, supplements the counter space. “That was a really unusual detail, because the countertop is quite small,” says Dave Marcus, president of AyA Kitchens & Baths".

AyA draws the world to its kitchens

 

"Designed in collaboration with New York- based Dror Benshetrit, the Avani collection kitchens combine sleek looks with high function. They feature minimal hardware, painstakingly fine details both on the inside and outside of the cabinets, and clever storage components such as roll-out pantries. Finishes stand out, too, with gorgeous high-gloss and matte-lacquer options, and hand-rubbed stains on white oak."

"AyA Kitchens, which introduced the “Swiss army island” kitchen at last year’s show, was back with an eye-popping collaboration with renowned New York designer Dror Benshetrit. Called Avani, it’s aimed at the upscale condo market and designed around the concept of a nesting arc system in which a movable island can slide to rest over top of a lower, stationery island, or, if there’s no lower island, it can tuck away into the wall cabinetry and counter to open up space."

"This is Avani, a new line of kitchens by AyA Kitchens. 2 most fantastic things about this kitchen: the colour options and the counter moves- it shifts to create a larger island, or tucks away completely into the back millwork for more space. Love the sleek European lines and made in Canada quality."

Top designer inspired by human foibles

 

"With his new Avani line for AyA Kitchens, Benshetrit has re-imagined the kitchen itself as a sort of canvas. “We are transformable beings, emotionally, as humans,” he says. “In the morning, we are in the kitchen quietly starting our day with coffee, in the evenings, we gather there together to make dinner. The kitchen wants to be different things for us at different times.” To this end, for Avani, Dror has minimized the composition, creating this one simple gesture that he calls the Ark—a transformable island space that floats in and out according to its function and the user’s mood."
