Valcucine at imm Cologne 2016

On occasion of Imm Cologne 2016 (January 18th-24th), one of the most important international fairs dedicated to the new décor proposals of the best design brands, Valcucine presents Genius Loci and Forma Mentis, the last two kitchens designed by Gabriele Centazzo.

Forma Mentis, which will be presented for the first time, is a kitchen designed for people who like to experience space in a practical, relaxed and friendly manner and who are constantly looking for new ideas, excellent design and quality of detailing. The new modular kitchen system marks the achievement of an aesthetic thought built with strong dedication over time, become a mindset (Forma Mentis) in Valcucine: a design looking for unique tactile textures, able to give and awaken sensations now forgotten.

The other protagonist is Genius Loci, after the success at Salone del Mobile 2015, is back on the scene again. It is an island or wall kitchen inspired by the ‘secretaire’, the traditional writing desk that comes with secret drawers. The drawer has always been of central importance in cooking, it is available in two versions: the first is angled and projects slightly outward at the bottom, creating a handle and reflecting light in such a way that highlights its tactile material surfaces and hand-crafted elements; the other is more ‘minimalist’ and aligns perfectly flush with the kitchen doors.

In order to make the kitchen even more functional and ergonomic, Genius Loci is equipped with Air Logica System, the revolutionary ergonomic back panel that is able to accommodate and conceal, if necessary, all kitchen equipment.
