NORTH OLMSTED, OHIO — Innovation is the name of the game at the brand-new BA Kitchen, a state-of-the-art cooking, entertaining and event space at ONE World Trade Center in downtown New York City created by Bon Appétit. Offering cutting-edge cooking technology and appliances – and a stunning, contemporary design – the venue will host world-renowned chefs, celebrities, tastemakers and global influencers year-round to celebrate food and culture. Moen is pleased to be a sponsor of the new kitchen, which opened with the ultimate party on February 24, 2015.
“The BA Kitchen is all about discovering and celebrating the latest innovations for the kitchen, and that’s our commitment at Moen, too,” said Timothy McDonough, vice president, global brand marketing at Moen. “As the number one faucet brand in North America, Moen is dedicated to developing thoughtfully designed products that make consumers’ lives easier – with styles to fit any design preference. We’re thrilled to be a part of a space that showcases the best of the best for today’s gourmet kitchen.”
Aligning with the BA Kitchen’s chic, streamlined aesthetic, a variety of Moen’s newest, modern-styled faucets and sinks can be found throughout the space, including kitchen and bar/prep faucets from the STō collection. Featuring a slim, sleek design, the faucets offer a distinctive combination of geometric lines and a beautiful, rounded high-arc spout. Its integrated pulldown spray wand nests neatly inside the spout, providing all of the functionality and ease-of-use of a traditional pulldown wand – without extra seams.
The BA Kitchen also includes Moen sinks and the Modern Pot Filler, a wall-mounted faucet installed directly above the stove that simplifies and enhances the gourmet cooking experience. The Modern Pot Filler folds against the wall when not in use, and conveniently extends 24 inches, via its double-joint extendable arm, to deliver water to pots from above. Dual shut-offs at the base of the filler and at the spout provide added safety, helping to ensure cooks never have to reach over a hot pot or open flames to turn off the flow of water.
