An induction hob has been built into a separate, curve-fronted unit so that it is possible to cook away from guests if they are seated at the island. An IO black glass extractor hood is a stylish addition.

A glass-topped table, which seats four, fits into a semi-circular cut-out in the island. The comfortable eating area was created using a walnut cylindrical base with the top sitting on stainless-steel feet.
