The Ethimo modus operandi has always been characterised by the creation of increasingly more complete, comfortable open-air spaces that set trends for quality outdoor living, in perfect empathy with nature and in line with new lifestyles. This is the creative spirt behind Phil, a kitchen with a smart ‘poise’ that simplifies the art of outdoor cooking. Phil, the design ‘challenge’ met by Ethimo and Gordon Guillaumier, sees a new element take shape, with an unconventional design that, thanks to its special ‘nomadic’ configuration, emphasises the concept of outdoor entertaining, telling the story not only of an original way to personalise outdoor settings, but of enjoying contemporary cooking in a creative, relaxed way.
With its elegant yet informal look, Phil is the result of careful reflection on outdoor living: whether it be a portico, patio, terrace, poolside or city balcony, this unusual element makes any setting, however small, easy to use and allows the kitchen area to be managed simply, functionally and
quickly. Thanks to its sizes and technical features, Phil squeezes all the main kitchen activities into a small ergonomic space, ensuring maximum functionality. Its constructive equilibria, like stability and sturdiness, are highlighted by its ‘soft’ unconventional design. 95 cm in height and 75 cm in diameter, Phil is made up of a single cylindrical base in metal in the colours Olive Green and Sepia Black. With refined teak details, it comes in three possible configurations: with sink, induction hob and barbecue. These ‘round islands’ can co-exist with their different functions, creating circular movement and activities, or be used on their own. The sink, complete with a handy work surface/top in teak, is fitted with fixed feet, while the two cooking options have cables and are also available on wheels, meaning they can easily be moved to where they are needed, emphasising the dynamic versatile character of this project.
