New from Italian kitchen maker Demode: an eco-friendly, stylish line of modular kitchen components called Meccanica.
Among the virtues of the system: No glues are used, which means there is no trace of formaldehyde. The components are 100 percent recyclable and arrive flat-packed and ready for assembly. To locate a dealer, go to Demode (interesting sidenote: the name is an acronym for Democratic Modern Design), which is an offshoot of well-known kitchen maker Valcucine.
