1987-2017 Glass in the Kitchen. The creative gesture of Valcucine
The designer’s pioneering spirit, paired with his ancestral bent for research into materials, generated the idea of using a material that had not yet been explored in the kitchen: glass.
In 1987 Gabriele Centazzo designed Artematica in Vitrum, the first kitchen made entirely of glass, following his imagination and satisfying an intimate need that lead to the creation of a 100% recyclable kitchen.
The apparent contrast between the lightness of glass and its load-bearing capacity, capable of supporting the monolithic presence of a 200 kg rock, achieved never-before-seen performances and unexpected functions. By reaching beyond the stereotypes of the tried and tested appications of glass it has been possible to rediscover its resistance and its ability to become "dematerialised".
