Patricia Urquiola designs Scholtès' hub

When it comes to kitchens, it is often the humble appliances that do all the work but get little of the praise. Come October though, forward-thinking luxury kitchen appliance brand Scholtès, intend to reverse this long-standing injustice with the opening of its Centre of Excellence in London.

So much more than a functional showroom, Scholtès intend the venue to be a lively and theatrical hub hosting everything from demonstrations, master classes and private dinners.

The task to turn such an ambitious vision into a reality, would require both experience and ingenuity, and Scholtès had only one person in mind. Enter Patricia Urquiola: a designer/architect whose reign over the industry has lasted well over a decade, and whose track record (including twice W* Designer of the Year) has shown her to shine at every turn.

Here Wallpaper* grab some moments with the leading lady, to discuss her upcoming project with Scholtès and whether the kitchen is at the heart of her home.
