Snaidero USA Commissioned as the Kitchen & Bath Provider for Chicago's Wanda Vista Project

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwired - May 11, 2016) - Snaidero USA will be the kitchen and bath cabinetry provider for Chicago's anticipated high-rise that will stand as the third tallest building in Chicago. The Wanda Vista building will be the epitome of luxury city living in the windy city, housing 406 units. The project is developed by the Chinese Wanda Group and Chicago-based Magellan Development Group and will comprise both large residential units and hotel rooms in a luxury 95-story tower that is poised to become a landmark of the Chicago skyline.

The expert teams from Studio Gang, bKL Architecture, and Hirsch Bedner Associates (HBA) designers selected Snaidero's WAY, a GOOD DESIGN™ Award-winning cabinetry line to complement the posh interiors of the Vista Residences. The building's design identifies architectural elegance and captures the essential beauty found in crystals, minerals and gems. The WAY model perfectly reflects and captures the natural beauty this space entertains. With its clean modern aesthetics, high-end functionality and subtle details, WAY is the quintessential expression of Made-in-Italy design and craftsmanship.

In collaboration with the architecture and design teams, the design team of Studio Snaidero Chicago created four distinct kitchen designs that are elegant and contemporary in look. The designs include a variety of finishes and elements, open shelving and flip-up upper cabinets.

Snaidero USA is dedicated to eco-friendly materials and practices, WAY continues this tradition by implementing standards that protect the environment while improving the quality of life inside the home. WAY incorporates eco-friendly wood from reserves certified by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC), which establishes the right balance between tree-cutting and forest planting. More importantly, the carcass of the kitchen employs a LOW-EMISSION PANEL with wood particles with very low formaldehyde emissions -- which have been drastically reduced to less than half of the E1 European standard.
