Brown Jordan Outdoor Kitchens is launching a new modular, freestanding collection with international architect and designer Daniel Germani.
Elements by Tecno is the company’s latest collaboration with Germani and follows the brand’s commitment to design innovation, the company says.
“Our latest collaboration with Daniel Germani continues to push the boundaries of outdoor living design,” says Mitch Slater, president and founder of Brown Jordan Outdoor Kitchens. “We’re proud to introduce a collection so innovative in both concept and execution that it answers the growing demand for sophisticated, yet functional outdoor cabinetry storage solutions with unparalleled durability.”
Empowering design professionals to create outdoor living spaces to fit any footprint, the contemporary, freestanding collection takes a modular approach and conceived as a set of uniquely designed stainless steel modules to withstand any climate. Pieces can be used as a sideboard, bar or cooking station, complementing today’s popular low seating arrangements.
"Elements is a modular concept,” says Germani, creative director and founder of Daniel Germani Designs in Phoenix, Ariz. “One can select from several standard measures and choose from a range of appliance options. Its 360-degree functionality provides access to storage and shelving on both sides of the units, creating beautiful, modular island blocks.
“Durability is at the core of Elements by Tecno,” Germani continues. “Built in stainless steel and powder coated in a wide range of colors, Elements is the perfect solution for a durable outdoor kitchen prepared to withstand exposure to the most extreme climates."
The new collection features a pared back, European aesthetic, which blurs the lines between cabinetry and furniture. To help keep outdoor living essentials within easy reach and protected from the elements, the collection offers nested drawers as well as doors and drawers with integrated handles. Configurations include storage cabinets (including the option of pass-through cabinets for access from both sides), cabinetry for grills, refrigerators, and trash.
Brown Jordan Outdoor Kitchens says it was the first to introduce powder coated stainless steel to outdoor kitchens and is now offering powder coat finishes for both the exterior and interior of cabinets. Homeowners now also have the potential to add contrast through black or a pop of color or to incorporate wood grain-inspired drawers, the company says. “Powder coat selections span a wide range of solid colors, realistic wood grains and industrial-inspired finishes, creating lasting beauty through an ultra-durable and low maintenance finish,” the company explains.
Other key design features of the new collection include:
- Frameless cabinetry with seamless design details, including two nested drawers and doors with a back bevel acting as the pull
- Magnets and gaskets on all doors, to create a solid closure in all conditions, including high winds from weather or rooftop installations
- Standard size modules, with cabinets available in several sizes and the ability to order in sets up to 6-foot lengths. Multiple sets can be attached to one another.
- Grill base modules, which are available in three sizes and accommodate a limited variety of manufacturers’ grills and sizes
- Refrigerator, trash and sink module options
