a kitchen with slate-like counters and bamboo cabinets

The idea behind this environmentally-friendly kitchen was to blend the contemporary stainless-steel accents of appliances with some of the greenest materials. It is organized around a work island that doubles as an informal kitchen table. For cabinet fronts and flooring, bamboo--one of nature's fastest growing and most durable materials--was used. While counters resemble honed slate, they're a cement-based product called Slatescape, a durable, inert material. To seal cabinets, hard-wax oil and non-outgassing polyurethane water-base sealers were used.
