After a long process of trying to track down this rare piece, Advance managed to source a vintage cabinet from Rio de Janeiro, South Brazil. This specific cabinet was a Peroba Wood Antique Refrigerator Cabinet, with the wood originally used, Peroba de Campo, now being extinct. There are only about 200 of these fridges left in the world and most of these are in a poor condition. Advance originally rebuilt the piece as a meat aging cabinet, but it was replaced with glazed panels so the meat could be viewed in situ. This modified version of the cabinet, due to the glazed panels, means that customers can see straight through it into the kitchen.
Advance also showcased a range of innovative ideas in the kitchen solution. The company developed the idea to procure a personalised grill for Flat Iron as due to their small but specialised menu, it required a bespoke grill that would be tailored to its unique food processes. Advance partnered with a conditioning grill designer to ensure that Flat Iron would get the perfect, bespoke grill and ultimately managed to design a completely bespoke kitchen solution that fitted in with Flat Iron’s brand with a rapid installation time of just three days.
