“Architectural Scenarios” is more than an exhibition; it is the sublimation of shared ideals of beauty, expressiveness, sustainability and technological innovation, culminating in a unique experience. This event reflects the dynamic relationship between design and architecture, creating a new way of conceiving and experiencing retail space as an opportunity to inspire and engage people.

Different scenarios designed by the eclectic triptych bring the concept of experiential luxury into the world of design through settings that bring Valcucine's infinite compositional flexibility into dialogue with different architectures, cultures or stylistic figures: holistic design and customization for i29; eclectic and personalized design with an artistic touch for ARRCC; interdisciplinary approach and exploration of the duality between Chinese tradition and modernity for Neri&Hu.

ARRCC

The South African studio, ARRCC wanted to create kitchen scenarios that perfectly complemented their approach to luxurious lifestyles. Their goal was to create high-end functional spaces that not only exhibit exceptional craftsmanship but are also designed for everyday living. By utilizing Valcucine's versatile luxury finishes from the Artematica Soft Outline and Forma Mentis capsule collection, our design showcases luxurious kitchen environments that harmonize with ARRCC's distinctive interiors

Valcucine's unwavering attention to detail aligns perfectly with ARRCC's timeless approach to contemporary living, resulting in an inviting environment that embodies our commitment to extraordinary spaces. In harmony with ARRCC's Valcucine design, OKHA Design Studio introduces select furniture pieces that create a blended seating area in the kitchen – a space that exudes both relaxation and sophistication.

i29

Dutch studio i29 offers a holistic exploration of the kitchen collection, interpreting the kitchen collections in alignment with the design values expressed by designer Gabriele Centazzo. The exhibit featuring the Genius Loci collection delves into the core of craftsmanship, highlighting the meticulous artistry and skills that exemplify Valcucine's brand values.

Within the space dedicated to Logica Celata, autonomous art takes the spotlight, marking a celebration of creativity. The kitchen transforms into a canvas, inspiring a reinterpretation of domestic spaces.

The installation dedicated to Riciclantica Outline unveils a narrative of sophistication, displaying dynamic design details. Every line contributes to a storytelling experience, resulting in a visually striking presentation.

NERI&HU

The installation designed by Neri & Hu on the ground floor titled “the hearth“ focuses on the kitchen as a spatial metaphor for warmth and conviviality within a home. The installation is divided into two parts, both with Artematica, one public in nature with the kitchen sitting on an open plaza and the more private kitchen contained within a wooden structure. One extroverted and the other more introverted but both symbolizing home and shelter.

The introverted structure is composed of black stained wooden louvers with folding and diagonal planes. The exposed beams and pillars strengthen the reading of the house within the Valcucine showroom. Both spaces contain a kitchen as the hearth of its daily activities. In the plaza, the more public character is marked by a central communal table and a constellation of wooden stools specifically designed and made for this installation while the house heightened the more intimate aspects of our daily lives.

Join us from April 15 to April 21 at the Valcucine flagship store at Corso Garibaldi 99!
