SieMatic’s latest high-tech, high-end kitchen system, unveiled at the company’s headquarters in Germany last fall, will make lovers of minimalist chic swoon. The S3 Kitchen, available at SieMatic Seattle (Downtown, 2030 First Ave.; 206.443.8620; siematic-seattle.com), was designed to offer greater design flexibility with more configurations and color options—including for the aluminum backing strips—so that you can add a coordinating or contrasting pop of color. Palette options range from bold new shades, such as aqua blue and poppy red, to understated industrial hues (such as the island shown here in “graphite grey”). Cover your customizable island in either wood veneer, gloss or matte lacquer, or SimiLaque, a new lacquer-like, high-gloss laminate that, thanks to laser technology, renders edges nearly invisible. Sweet.
