Together with the Palaty Gallery team, we created one of the most complex design objects - a kitchen model. We used the production facilities of Palaty Atelier as well as handcrafted labour.

This is our first design project developed within the new direction of the office - DA product. An important aspect of DA product is the creation of unique objects with a focus on technology and sustainability. This direction plans to foster collaboration with other architectural offices, companies, and industries.

In this collaboration, we aspired to reflect, first of all, not merely the object, but the principles and common values of DA and Palaty: architecturality, functionality, and handcraftedness. We eliminated decorative elements and far-fetched details and created a strict, laconic, but at the same time exhaustively functional kitchen.

Materials and finishes have been carefully selected: stainless steel is ideal for the kitchen, it is hygienic and wear-resistant; and we used veneer and textured ceramics to contrast with the strictness and coldness.

DA Bureau is a team of architects and designers working onprojects around the world. Our main goals are to create uniqueand memorable spaces and to change the urban environment.Design and architecture are our passion and our lifestyle. We worka lot with spatial organisation and storytelling in our projects,creating unique visual concepts. It is important for us to make theworld around a little better and more beautiful, that's why we workwith projects from a mere concept up to the launch and know howto bring our ideas into life.
