Luxury kitchens

What does luxury kitchens mean for us?

The perception of a luxury is vastly subjective and fundamentally psychological, even when we are talking about luxury kitchens. The notion of luxury is changing and a person’s cultural background influence how we perceive it. 

Valcucine has been standing out in the luxury kitchen sector for over forty years, focusing on several values and desin principles that created our sense of luxury: sustainbality, wellbeing, innovation and timelessness are the guidelines that every day insipire our work. 

Our luxury kitchens are designed with people in mind to create products that contribute to the wellness and needs of the user.

Valcucine has earned a reputation for its dedication to improving the ergonomics and the use of space.
This has led to the Logica System, which was created in the 90s. The innovative and ergonomic system features an equipped back section, jumbo drawers and wall units with lift-up doors that makes it easier to work in the kitchen because everything is within hand’s reach.
The special New Logica System and Air Logica System units were developed as an evolved version of the equipped back section and the wall units. These systems blend aesthetics with functionality and are able to contain and conceal, when necessary, all the equipment required in the kitchen.

To further contribute to the daily comfort of consumers and enhance their sense of freedom, Valcucine has also designed specific details such as the luminous panel; when fitted in special units, the panel contributes to giving the kitchen a more airy appeal.
Moreover, Valcucine constantly carries out performance tests on harmful volatile substances, artificial radioactivity, and adheres to the strictest regulations on formaldehyde emissions.

Valcucine is synonymous with innovation. It has revolutionised the kitchen space with numerous ground-breaking solutions.

Valcucine changed the whole concept of kitchen doors with Artematica, the first door in the world with an aluminium frame that is invisible from the outside, plus a 5mm thick, aesthetic, HPL panel. The glass version, presented in 2006 with Invitrum base units, was the first-ever 100% recyclable kitchen.
Ricicla, created in the 90s and soon after developed into Riciclantica, was the first kitchen with an aluminium frame and a panel that is only 2mm thick. As the utmost expression of dematerialisation, this is the slimmest and lightest cabinet door in the world, fitted with the most innovative and technological materials on the market.
Valcucine designs timeless kitchens that are impervious to trends, built to last and accompany customers throughout their lives. Each kitchen offers extensive planning freedom thanks to the variety of units available.

Not only can the units be combined using different ranges but they can also be customised thanks to a wide range of materials, finishes and handicraft works.

In the Genius Loci range, for example, the drawer can be personalised with inlays and special finishes, while the glass surfaces can be customised with any image, using an inlay technique.
In-depth tests on the quality and durability of materials are performed on all collections to provide for a 10-year guarantee and matchless after-sales assistance.

It’s no longer enough to find luxury kitchen solutions that combine functionality and beauty.

We now need a new paradigm. A model of sustainable development that can be applied to all production and design phases. Sustainable design processes that – day after day - contribute to re-establishing the right relationship between man and nature.

Traditionally the luxury industry has used opacity as a way to build mystique and desirability, but today we need transparency.

To be accountable, Valcucine has also accomplished the LEED v4.1 contribution map. The LEED system can be applied to any building and interior space and it provides a framework for the design, construction and management of ecological and healthy, highly efficient and cost-effective structures.

The certification is a symbol of excellence and indicates, with third-party validation recognised by the international market, that a building has achieved high levels of energy-environmental sustainability, protecting people’s quality of life and health. 

Today we can therefore say that Valcucine luxury kitchens meet the LEED v4.1 performance criteria and contribute to the credits required for LEED certification.
