Minimalist design in a high-tech kitchen.
Introduced by Toncelli as the "futuristic jewel" in their collection at Eurocucina 2012, the Prisma is a stylistic departure from Toncelli's other kitchens, where the emphasis is on prestigious materials and traditional workmanship.
Conceived as an entry-level luxury kitchen, the Prisma features crisp prismatic shapes, gleaming surfaces, and an interactive bench top, with a touch screen and internet connection.

While the Prisma also sports a stand for a personal tablet computer, the more high-tech element is the Samsung-driven touch screen table, integrated right into the transparent bench. Designed for tech savvy home chefs, the Prisma kitchen picks up on the trend of tablet computers migrating to the kitchen, and then takes that idea to the next level.

The minimalist design fits well with the high-tech elements of the kitchen—red and white lacquered surfaces, anodized aluminium and black glass create a contemporary and dynamic feel. The prismatic composition, from the drawers in the island bench, to the sink which supports the bench top, gives the kitchen a feeling of weightlessness and light.

The Prisma kitchen will be on display at Eurocucina 2012, as part of the Salone del Mobile in Milan, along with five other Toncelli kitchens. While a display of the Prisma will be visible to all the Salone visitors, guests must register on the Toncelli website for a guided tour of all the kitchens, tracing a linear time-line from the kitchens inspired by the past through to Prisma, Toncelli's most high-tech kitchen, and, they hope, an instant classic.
