Today, Cesar has updated this historic model to meet new aesthetic and functional demands, while preserving its hallmark contemporary looks. First, the door has been slimmed down from 2.5 cm to 2.2 cm, like for the two recent UNIT and Maxima 2.2 models. This makes it both more functional and lightweight, also from an aesthetic viewpoint. The modules have changed too, adapting to the other Cesar lines for greater adaptability and flexibility, that’s also achieved by the new line of wall and tall units. This flexibility extends to the opening systems as well, with the addition to the catalogue, along with the push-to-open device, of the Inside grip edging built into the door panel.
Bold lines creating strict yet dramatic compositions, fine finishes and sophisticated and elegant details, 45º profiles on the doors, worktops and frames: these characteristics have always defined Elle as a kitchen system with a strong personality dictated by clean and simple volumes. The compositions’ 45º angles make new and attractive visual effects possible, enhancing the pure lines and minimising the–sometimes significant–thickness of the materials, which seem to disappear and create the impression of great lightness. This effect is present even in large blocks, distinguished by finishes with a strong identity.
More generally, with the sleeker lines of the new grip recess, the single-piece block looks slimmer, without sacrificing the strong presence that has always been its defining feature.
Three new compositions. The first features an island, cabinets and countertop made of Fenix Pietra laminate, while the second pairs a brushed Grey Saint Laurent marble countertop with cabinets decked with Cenere glossy lacquer. And for those wanting to extend the kitchen into the living area, we have a new solution focussing on simplicity and unusual pairings: in the kitchen, Rovere Natural island, bases units and breakfast bar are paired with a Inox Mat stainless-steel worktop, structured lacquered Plumbeo tall units and Grigio Fumé glass. This sober elegance flows into the living room, where a composition with Rovere Natural doors alternates tops in the same material with Grey Saint Laurent marble.
