Binova has turned cooktop configuration on its side—literally. Instead of the standard arrangement, the Italian kitchen design company aligned the burners on its new Fires Line unit horizontally. The shape allows for more versatile design in the kitchen, since the cooktop can be positioned up front for easy accessibility or to the back of the counter, away from children. Available through Chicago-based Haute Living (one of two U.S. distributors), the stainless steel appliance measures 54 inches long and 13¾ inches deep. Haute Living, 312.329.9000.
