Valcucine: Discover the values of luxury kitchens with well-being, timelessness, innovation and sustainability
Italy’s Valcucine is a well-known global manufacturer of kitchen cabinets. With a sense of modernism and avant-garde playfulness, its designs challenge the conventional notion of kitchen cabinets and set the pace for the European home furnishing trend. Valcucine has made a name for itself internationally and is recognized as a pioneer in Italian furniture design in just 40 years. It has received multiple accolades for its international designs, including the GOOD DESIGN AWARD, ICFF Furniture Award, and ADI-FAD Award. The headquarters and manufacturing facility of Valcucine are situated in Pordenone, an area well-known for its Italian kitchen cabinets.
In addition to Europe, the United States, the Middle East, India, Southeast Asia, and South Africa, Valcucine distributes its goods to approximately 370 specialty stores annually. Four gifted Italian architects created Valcucine in 1988, and the company’s design team is presently led by Mr. Gabriele Centazz. He oversees the core team’s annual research, development, and production of kitchen designs that adhere to the wellness (putting people at the center), innovation (embracing innovation), and timeless (creating designs that never go out of style) tenets.
Under the direction of Gabriele and his team, Valcucine’s technical design and material selection go through intensive testing and improvement in the laboratory, from various design series to small hardware accessories. In their pursuit of ergonomics and efficient use of space, they mix the use of materials that are secure for both people and the environment. In the global market, Valcucine occupies a dominant position unlike any other.
