The Project

Aster Cucine, the well-known producer of kitchen furniture, goes over the concept of 'collection' and presents the concept of 'Moods'. Luxury, Factory, Transitional, Traditional, Modern: each of them can inspire a specific atmosphere for the kitchen, that designers can translate into their own project, using the different elements, materials and finishes, provided by the company. In this design contest, students of the MA Product Design are asked to create unexpected interpretations of the Aster Moods.
