IN THE SPOTLIGHT – VALCUCINE JOHANNESBURG KITCHEN REVEAL
Casarredo, Johannesburg’s largest Italian luxury furniture importers and home to Valcucine’s flagship Johannesburg showroom, recently completed the installation of three Valcucine kitchens, thereby officially welcoming the leader in kitchen design to the City of Gold.
The 3 000m² showroom in Kramerville showcases Valcucine’s Artemetica, Riciclantica and Genius Loci kitchen collections.
All three were designed by Gabriele Centazzo yet all have their own, unique signature style.
Riciclantica: the eco-tech kitchen
We have worked on extreme door dematerialisation to meet requirements in terms of functionality and silhouette. Riciclantica stands for “lightness and resilience”: the lightest door in the world fits into an aluminium structure that is water-, steam- and heat-resistant.
This makes it possible to plan kitchen layouts with wall-hung units, allowing for the utmost freedom of arrangement and movement and creating a durable and cutting-edge design. Due to the remarkable reduction of materials used, combined with the eco-tech finishes, this kitchen is sustainable yet innovative, designed for those who pay a great deal of attention to their well-being and to living in harmony with nature.
Artematica: The art of pure volumes
Our intuition led us to using “pure” (not bonded) materials on the aluminium structure of the Artematica doors, a move which opened up endless ideas and combinations. Artematica has been designed down to the last detail to make movements more fluid and more assured. Through the use of soft closure doors and highest safety standards thanks to rounded corners and edges. Artematica uses refined glass available in various colours, wood that conveys strong tactile sensations, lacquered surfaces and metal laminates.
Genius Loci: A place for customisation
Just like old desks Genius Loci conceals a secret, intimate, space in a drawer that goes beyond the functional. Genius Loci is the heart of customisation and available in various finishes. It offers a timeless aesthetic and hand-crafted workmanship that reflects the taste of those who purchase it. The result is sophisticated and refined.
All finishes and colours can be changed, and the level of customization for each kitchen is endless. Book an appointment with the Casarredo team to experience all three kitchens first hand.
