Gadgets take centre stage, in customised modular kitchens
WHILE there is no shortage of international brands offering premium modular kitchens, South Indian outfit Elenza aims to give them a run for their money. Launching as part of the new Smart Home Centre at Sunrise Solutions, the in-house brand offers fully-customised fittings for kitchens as well as bedrooms and living spaces. The interior design space in Domlur has also teamed up with international appliance brands like Miele for fully-integrated solutions.

With ranges to suit different tastes and budgets, the showpiece is a fully-automated kitchen that functions without handles, with cupboards opening at the touch of a button. With fittings made locally by Elenza, there is the option to add state-of-the-art appliances from German brand Mielea��s newest a�?Generation 6000a�� range. For a high-tech kitchen, the a�?knock knocka�� dishwasher (which opens when you tap gently on it) is a must, while health conscious consumers could opt for a stainless steel oven that generates its own steam. For coffee-lovers, the inbuilt a�?bean to cupa�� machine allows you to select your favourite beans and transform them into anything from an espresso to a cappuccino or latte macchiato. While the a�?hands freea�� kitchen starts from Rs. 25 lakh upwards without appliances, more traditional ranges, including one on display in the showroom with a more rustic feel, start from Rs. 14 lakh.
Apart from launching Elenza, Sunrise has also added new products to its existing bathroom collections, including the Kohler artistsa�� edition range. Made at a dedicated studio in the US using a ceramic ink transfer process, these wash basins feature hand-painted designs with a variety of inspirations, including a particularly stunning ceramic sink in blue and white, reminiscent of traditional Moorish art.
