Cantilever Interiors introduces the K3, a new concept in kitchen design that combines functional, ergonomic and efficient features with a modern, yet timeless and distinctively Australian mid-century aesthetic for homeowners who are passionate about the art of cooking and working with the best ingredients, produce, utensils, appliances and kitchenware.

K3’s smart planning considers who will cook in the kitchen and how, with storage, workspaces and appliances positioned to suit individual culinary, lifestyle and entertaining preferences. Foodies and cooking enthusiasts will appreciate the generous preparation benches, abundant storage, choice of different pantry options and dedicated appliance/work station cupboards. The K3 design has a place for every imaginable kitchen appliance.

The classic peg board tool storage system commonplace in the traditional backyard shed has been reinterpreted in the visually attractive Toolboard option featuring adjustable magnetic timber shelving components and flexible utensil storage, keeping benches clutter-free.

The K3 gastronomic kitchen is designed to maximise available space with features such as the under-bench bin system and internal organisation options that reclaim unused space in sink cabinets and corner cupboards. The handle-free drawer concept is an interesting design detail that allows ease of opening of cupboards and drawers, without encroaching on space.

With modern kitchens transformed into the hub of the home for the family, the ultra eco-friendly K3 uses specially selected materials that combine good looks with exceptional durability. The benchtop and cabinetry fronts are birch plywood with laminate pressed to both faces, which can be refinished in the event of minor chipping.

Designed and handcrafted by Melbourne-based boutique kitchen design, manufacturing and installation company Cantilever Interiors, the proudly Australian made K3 is built to order using local materials and local suppliers wherever possible, with select hardware and accessories sourced from Europe to incorporate the best possible durability, functionality and ergonomics.

K3 kitchens feature EO certified laminate board containing low levels of formaldehyde; a bamboo sink cover; the hardy Australian sourced timber, PEFC Certified Black Butt; low VOC water-based finishes to treat timbers; and Toolboard shelves, trays and pegs finished in a food safe lemon scented oil. K3 can be designed to accommodate various configurations including galley, L-shape, L-shape with island, U-shape or straight run to ensure an exact fit for each unique space.
