The kitchens protagonists of this Design Week

— 29 May 2024


For Design Week 2024 Valcucine has set up the Architectural Scenarios exhibition in its showroom in Corso Garibaldi: here different scenarios designed by three renowned international architecture firms have put Valcucine's infinite compositional flexibility into dialogue with different architectures, cultures or stylistic features. ARRCC brought to Milan an environment with an eclectic and personalized design with the unmistakable artistic touch of the studio, i29 instead embraced spaces designed with holistic inspiration and strong customisation, Neri&Hu, finally, brought to the stage projects with a highly interdisciplinary approach and devoted to exploration of the duality between Chinese tradition and modernity.


Very Simple: Kitchen
The duo of designers and creatives REdDUO has signed, for the hyper-contemporary Bolognese brand Very Simple: Kitchen, a model that reinterprets the industrial line that characterizes the collections, in favor of an artisanal approach, where the identity of the designers manifests itself through the sinuosity of the beveled corners. Very Simple: Kitchen offers a unique interpretation in the panorama of custom-made kitchens, inspired by the functional and minimalist design of the industrial world, combining simple geometries and an accurate use of colours, materials and finishes and composing blocks that are easy to create, assemble and move, responding to contemporary living needs. The line curated by REdDUO looks for the first time at the use of wood to design a kitchen with soft, warm and organic lines - exhibited at the Fuorisalone as part of the Convey initiative.


Signature Kitchen Suite
For the Fuorisalone 2024, the high-end built-in appliance brand Signature Kitchen Suite has collaborated with the designer Patricia Urquiola for the "Mantle" collection of material cabinets, modular and free standing elements. In increasingly fluid spaces, where the boundary between living room and kitchen disappears, Urquiola's intention was to transform the household appliance into a real furnishing element. The refrigerator, thus, becomes a versatile design object, more physically and visually accessible, suitable for positioning in different domestic environments. At Milan Design Week 2024, Mantle was presented in an exclusive version with Cimento tile covering in the colors Vanilla, Blue, Burgundy, Green, Sand.


At the Pinacoteca di Brera, the German kitchen brand bulthaup presented new concepts and inspired people to experience spaces from a different perspective. Numerous participatory experiences with plants, flowers, ingredients and pans, around the worktops and tables staged by bulthaup.


The Elevation of Gravity - the installation designed by Gaggenau for Milan Design Week 2024 - brought the brand back to Villa Necchi Campiglio with an architectural installation that created a monumental experience to make the force of gravity tangible. Gaggenau, a luxury brand for professional-level household appliances, entrusted the artistic direction of the event to the creative agency Anomaly Berlin, which designed, more than a simple exhibition, a manifestation of the timeless charm of Gaggenau, which for the The installation collaborated once again with the architect, long-time partner, 1zu33. Wrapped in a semi-transparent fabric, the pavilion was divided into two contrasting but interconnected spaces: on one side the display of household appliances currently in production, on the other the brand's latest product launches in a visionary exhibition: The Essential Induction, the new generation of cooling products and a first look at the next Gaggenau icons. For the first time, a composer, Dirk Haubrich, was also commissioned to create a bespoke ambient soundscape to envelop visitors within the installation.
