The CHEF kitchen is inspired by the lifestyle of a home chef. The kitchen utensils are not merely objects, but tools of art for him. Display of his art objects inspire him along with the semi professional space that he craves is what drives the design of the space.
The Chef Kitchen was one of three kitchen designed for the Magppie Showroom in Delhi, and the first that got in production. As exceptional elements we see the refined countertop made by CNC milled stone, a gas burner which was especially designed for this kitchen and a pin wall, exposing important hardware and making them easily accessible during the passionate cooking process. Magppie is offering the body in several materials like stone, veneered aluminum and others. The Chef Kitchen was awarded as the best kitchen by the Elle Decoration Design Awards (EDIDA) 2013.

THE MAKING OF THE CHEF KITCHEN
In most family homes, the kitchen has evolved to become the central core of a modern home – for cooking and eating, as much as for work and relaxation too.
It is this philosophy that lies at the heart of the Chef Kitchen, ensuring each of our kitchen designs provide a very practical but beautiful, flexible room. Achieving this balance is Magppie's hallmark.
We frequently come across customers who bought or inherited a kitchen which falls short in the sheer impracticality of the room. Planning the layout has a huge influence on the look and feel of the cabinetry of the Chef Kitchen.
