Customer Case 10 | Custom Kitchen Island


01 Business Type

If you are in one of these business types, this case is for you:

  • Clients who love open-concept kitchens
  • Villa projects
  • High-end residential developments

02 Project Overview

Products: Custom Kitchen Island
We received a sketch and design concept from our client and created an integrated 3D model to develop the finished product. This project involved designing and manufacturing a custom kitchen island using pure acrylic material and combining it with wooden cabinets.

03 Features

  • Material: Pure acrylic
  • Color: Pure white
  • Dimensions: 3866 x 1100 x 980mm (customizable)
  • Design:
    • Combination of artificial stone veneer and classic washed rosewood cabinets.
    • Independent and open-style island with beveled edges on the countertop and legs for a sleek, modern look.
    • Seamlessly integrated white kitchen sink and countertop for a high-end, smooth appearance.
    • Custom cutouts for stove and electrical outlets based on client specifications.
    • Pre-cut spaces in the cabinets for a washing machine and dishwasher for easy appliance installation.
    • Space reserved on one side of the island for bar stools, creating a comfortable and casual seating area.

04 Challenges

1. Lack of Initial Information:

  • Challenge: The client initially provided only a reference image with no detailed information.
  • Solution: Guided the client through the process of confirming the overall dimensions and color. The CAD department created initial drawings, which were refined through nearly eight iterations to ensure all details, including cutout sizes, matched the client’s appliances.

2. Integration of Materials:

  • Challenge: Combining wooden cabinets with an artificial stone surface to create a cohesive and high-quality unit.
  • Solution: Collaborated with an external cabinet manufacturer to ensure the wooden cabinets matched the quality of our artificial stone. Quality inspectors reviewed the cabinets for flatness, surface treatment, edge finishing, and hardware before proceeding with further processing.

3. Seamless Construction:

  • Challenge: Creating large, rounded corners and seamless joints between the countertop and sink, as well as ensuring a clean beveled edge.
  • Solution: Used thermal bending techniques to form the rounded corners and advanced bonding methods to achieve a seamless look, preventing dirt accumulation and maintaining a sleek appearance.

05 Solutions

1. Collaborative Design Development:

  •  Worked closely with the client to finalize dimensions, color, and specific requirements, ensuring all design elements were clearly defined and approved through detailed CAD drawings.

2. Advanced Fabrication Techniques:

  • Utilized high-precision CNC machining and thermal bending to achieve smooth, seamless edges and joints.

3. Comprehensive Client Support:

  • Provided extensive support and communication throughout the design and production process, including detailed documentation and installation guides.
