Brown Jordan Outdoor Kitchens and Dekton by Cosentino Debut Elements by TECNO by Daniel Germani at ICFF 2019 – Booth #2547
May 17, 2019
Brown Jordan Outdoor Kitchens, the industry leader in luxury stainless steel outdoor living solutions, announces the launch of Elements by TECNO, its latest collaboration with global surfacing leader Dekton® by Cosentino and architect and designer Daniel Germani. In keeping with the brands’ commitment to design innovation, the new collection takes a truly modular approach — empowering design professionals to create outdoor living spaces to fit any footprint. The new outdoor kitchen collection will make its debut at the International Contemporary Furniture Fair (ICFF) in New York City from May 19 to 22, 2019.
In addition to its modular design, Elements by TECNO embraces a pared back, European aesthetic — complete with industry-leading durability. “When I conceptualized this new collaboration, I wanted to blur the lines even more between cabinetry and furniture, with accentuated legs and a sleek, frameless modular design,” Germani says. “It’s all about marrying the very best of form, functionality and durability.”
To help keep outdoor entertaining essentials within easy reach and protected from the elements, the collection offers nested drawers as well as doors and drawers with sleek, integrated handles. Configurations include storage cabinets – including a pass-through cabinet, with doors on the front and back – as well as cabinetry for grills, refrigerators and trash.
An ultra-durable powder coat finish – spanning solid colors, realistic wood grains and options matching Dekton by Cosentino countertop finishes — ensures lasting beauty and ease of care. At ICFF, Elements by TECNO will showcase the new Dekton Chromica Collection, also designed in collaboration with Germani. Slated to launch fall 2019, the edited palette of saturated, moody hues received tremendous acclaim from its preview at KBIS 2019, and reflects a trend that both category leaders and Germani forecast for 2020 and beyond. “A key finding in our 2019 Outdoor Living Report revealed a growing interest in darker colors in outdoor living spaces – from matte blacks to rich blues and greens,” says Mitch Slater, president of Brown Jordan Outdoor Kitchens. “The Dekton Chromica Collection truly brings this to life, and we look forward to receiving a great response at ICFF.”
As one of the first to introduce powder coated stainless steel to outdoor kitchens, Brown Jordan Outdoor Kitchens has continued to push its applications to the limit, with industry-first wood and industrial inspired looks. This expansive color offering, coupled with the collection’s clean lines and elevated form, empowers architects and designers to create a seamless aesthetic that flows from the indoors out.
Elements by TECNO celebrates a longstanding alliance between the outdoor living leader and Dekton by Cosentino. “We’re constantly inspired by Brown Jordan Outdoor Kitchens’ work with Daniel Germani to reimagine how outdoor living spaces are designed, and we are honored to be a part of it,” says Patty Dominguez, Vice President of Architecture and Design Sales for Cosentino North America. “This partnership also plays an integral role in each of our Cosentino Centers across North America, where our design collaboration inspires design professionals and homeowners alike to envision the unlimited design possibilities for their outdoor spaces.”
“Our latest collaboration with Daniel Germani continues to push the boundaries of outdoor living design,” Slater says. “We’re proud to introduce a collection so innovative in both concept and execution, which answers the growing demand for sophisticated, yet functional outdoor cabinetry storage solutions with unparalleled durability.”
ICFF attendees are also invited to attend “Outdoor Living – The Ultimate Amenity,” an ICFF Talks panel Sunday, May 19, from 3-4 pm. Moderated by Interior Design Magazine Managing Director Helene Oberman, Germani alongside fellow panelists Kerrie Kelly of Kerrie Kelly Design Lab and Stephanie Sarkies, Design Director with Pembrooke & Ives will offer expert tips and forecast insights on the design and business of creating outdoor spaces.
ICFF attendees can see the new collaboration first-hand at booth #2547. For more information about Brown Jordan Outdoor Kitchens, visit www.BrownJordanOutdoorKitchens.com.
