Making generous use of wood, marble, and glass, Boffi, the artisanal Italian brand known for luxurious kitchen and bathroom designs, releases new designs for 2023.

The brand, which emerged from Piero Boffi’s home workshop in 1934, continues to center the house as a refuge from the working world. The new collection emphasizes natural materials, warm wood grains are rich during golden hour, and white marble bath fixtures bounce light to make bathrooms feel larger.

The 2023 collection updates old favorites. Responding to customer feedback, the new Case 5.0, designed by Piero Lissoni, introduces new finishes in mirrored glass and spatulated clay. At first glance, the kitchen system’s cabinets look like solid stone, but are in fact a durable, slightly translucent glass. The material folds over the handles, creating a seamless facade. On top of the Case 5.0 is an MDi Induction cooking system and stainless steel sinks.

In addition to the material upgrades, Boffi has introduced a sliding peninsula to the system, which can be either lateral, frontal, or oblique. This flexibility makes food prep and service feel like a restaurant-grade kitchen, seamless and efficient for the ambitious home cook.

Outside of the kitchen, the Case 5.0 can be installed in the bathroom as either a monobloc system or a wall version with supporting shelves. The bathroom variations have the same finishes available as the kitchen models, so the two rooms can match one another in a cohesive home.

Another standout in the new collection is the Antibes System, also designed with help from Piero Lissoni. The simplified wooden modules recall mid-century modern furniture. Without customization, the Antibes can blend into a kitchen as standard shelving, but optional, built-in systems can add a chest of drawers or a desk unit that transforms a room into an office or study. The rectangular structures can be segmented to anyone’s liking, constructing narrow enclaves for books or large open spaces that fit a television console. To protect precious items without hiding their allure, buyers can add glass doors.

Boffi also reveals a merger with ADL, an Italian manufacturer of partitions founded by Massimo Luca, to seamlessly integrate ADL doors into their systems. Homes with lots of natural light will glow beautifully with the slatted doors, which look like Japanese room dividers without rice paper. They tease what is behind their walls and make a great closet accessory, or a partition for a room that needs to be divided but not entirely removed from a social scene. ADL doors can accessorize with built-in LED lighting or a vanity model.

With a Boffi kitchen, bathroom, or living room, the bedroom doesn’t have to be the only comfortable place in the home. The warm, organic details make good on Boffi’s motto, “a way of living.”
