VALCUCINE is about an all-Italian tradition linked to conviviality, quality and beauty. The kitchen is conceived as a place where one comes together every day and shares the pleasures of cooking and enjoying food.
The ergonomics and sustainable features of VALCUCINE ’s kitchens are aimed at boosting the experience, rituals and aesthetics of cooking and preparing food.
With Genius Loci, the new kitchen designed by Gabriele Centazzo that VALCUCINE is launching at Milan’s Fuorisalone 2015 event, the drawer is central to the kitchen experience. The kitchen system’s innovative and original drawers are inspired by antique desks and come in a variety of different finishes, such as distressed copper or bronze, or with hand-crafted surfaces of inlaid and carved wood or inlaid marble. ‘Genius Loci’ also has large base units that provide greater storage capacity. Every one of us has a ‘treasure chest’ or drawer of memories and emotions linked to eating and the senses.
The Tempting Art exhibition has been designed by Maurizio Galante & Tal Lancman to explore the topic of food and emotions connected to food in object form. This installation includes the work of 22 architects, designers and creatives. By letting their imaginations roam free, their works are layered with rich personal stories and emotions. This promises to be an exhibition to tantalise the senses.
