Ambiente 2013: Enamel and retro feeling

Enamel (vitreous enamel) is a smooth, durable coating made of melted and fused glass powder on metal. Many old industrial metal consumer objects were made with this finishing such as cooking vessels, dishwashers, laundry machines, sinks and tubs, etc. After decades of plastic and stainless steel, manufacturers are now going back into a vintage experience. Enamel kitchen goods have become popular items at the Ambiente Fair. Apart from enamel, also retro ’50s- ‘60s patterns with strong graphics and colour combinations were very popular.

Kitchen Aid presented its new product collection ProLine which was inspired by iconic streamline details of 1930s Art Deco. The collection consists of massive  “American” retro -style kitchen appliances for professional housewives. I’m afraid that in our modern European “to-go” kitchens we do not have a physical place for such monumental machinery.
