Over a century after its birth, French culinary range maker, La Cornue, proves it still possesses the same vision for daring and innovation that the company was founded on – by employing French architect Jean-Michel Wilmotte to design a hob and oven system that looks more akin to furniture than electrical appliances. A number of beautiful pieces have been designed: The Induction Table has four inductors laid out in an arc to leave a central workspace. It has a matching remote-controlled hood in screen-printed tempered grey glass and lacquered metal, and both are designed to stand alone or against a wall. The Big Vaulted Oven Tower houses an electric oven in a painted wooden cabinet with pull-out storage below and a large cupboard at the top. More info at Dezeen.
