Inside COOL POOLS SMARTER STORAGE BRIGHT BRICKS TRUE HEART OF THE HOME NEW FOCUS ON BENCHES Janita Singh Details: Mal Corboy can be reached on malcorboy.comor visit smeg.com.au. New kitchens boast island benches, organic curves and fluid lines in cabinets and appliances. ORGANIC DESIGN Designer Mal Corboy displayed the new-look kitchen layout with island benches as the focal point, organic curves and fluid lines in cabinetry and appliances in one of his latest project. He took the retro curves of the Smeg FAB refrigerator as inspiration for a clean, crisp kitchen in white with pops of colour in aqua and pink. By far the most striking feature of this kitchen was the sweeping curves of the bulkheads in cupboards, cabinets and island bench. Corboy chose to team the 50s-style Smeg (FAB32) two- door refrigerator/freezer in panna with a matching (BLV1) retro design dishwasher, four- zone induction cooktop and the classic stainless steel microwave oven. He says the kitchen reflects some of the new trends in design with island bench. KITCHEN DESIGNS IT'S no surprise Aust- ralians are keen to make kitchens the hub of their home. Today's home owner spends great time and effort to make the kitchen their pride. A great kitchen not only makes cooking enjoy- able, but brings families and friends together and adds value to the house. It means serious invest- ment with new, exciting things happening on the kitchen front. The kitchen is getting big- ger, with island benches becoming the show pony of the entire home and angular profiles making way for fluid and organic curves. Award-winning kitchen designer and former Aust- ralian Kitchen Designer of the Year, Mal Corboy says while the island bench in Europe is dedicated to storage, the relaxed lifestyle of Australia means it plays a heightened social role in the heart of the home. ''Island benches are now the focal point of the most important room in the home,'' he said.
