We have already seen some stunning and expensive kitchen appliances, such as Electrolux’s Molteni range cooker, priced at $100,000, but what would you say about kitchen that costs $1,6 million? It must be really special! Italian designer Claudio Celiberti has designed this world’s most expensive kitchen, dubbed the Fiore di Cristallo which comes with an eight-month waiting list.
Using striking design qualities, exquisite natural materials and fine craftsmanship, Celiberti created this masterpiece that features Swarovski chandelier, a crystal worktop and solid copper walls. Launched by celebrity chef Aldo Zilli at an exclusive party in London’s Mayfair on Thursday, this world’s most expensive kitchen took more than a year to handcrafted in Italy from the best quality materials including the world famous ‘Crystal of Murano’ (cristallo di Murano).
The centrepiece is a unique ‘crystal island’ worth $58,750 illuminated by a $42,000 Swarovski chandelier. The basin is also made from crystal and costs $4,200, while crystallized chrome-based Philip Starck taps are valued at $2,300.
The stone work top alone costs $10,900 and comes with a range of hand crafted German appliances from Gaggenau that weigh in $38,250. The fridge alone is $7,960, while extras including a wine climate cabinet and an espresso coffee machine are $4,400 and $2,730 respectively.
That’s not all. Buyers can ask for more luxurious adjustments, including copper lining, on the 27 cabinets, which cost over $700,000 to design and come with a 9mm crystal door and handle.
