The kitchen is truly the heart (and soul) of any home so we are always on the look out for future-forward brands that fuse a sleek modern aesthetic together with sustainable materials and advanced technology. To date, European design has led the field, but newcomer Bazzèo by NY Lofts is the first US contender to convincingly woo American homeowners over to the green side. Debuting this year at ICFF, Bazzèo is definitely worth a second look. Even if you’re not in the market for a new kitchen, these mean green sexy cuisines will make you wish you were.

Crafted from ¼ inch Paperstone combined with artfully stamped aluminum, Bazzèo offers American consumers a decidedly modern, European aesthetic. On the functional side, bazzeo kitchens work best with Küppersbusch appliances. The high-tech cook tops use electromagnetic energy to heat cooking utensils, offering a cooler and more efficient form of cooking. Unlike traditional cooking surfaces that heat up and stay hot long after the meal has been prepared, the black glass ceramic surface of the induction-top stove stays cool to the touch. An ultra-cool cooktop to go with an uber-cool kitchen.

Beyond the look and function of the actual product, Bazzèo kitchens are manufactured right here in the U.S. at a zero waste facility in Secaucus, New Jersey. Parent company NY Loft, always a green advocate on some level, jumped at the chance to launch an all-green line when they saw the growing demand in the marketplace. With projects in Las Vegas and Los Angeles, a sneak peek at CA BOOM, and their much-anticipated official launch at ICFF, Bazzèo may soon become a top-pick for American homeowners.
