BTW - The Next Big Thing in Kitchens!

The next time you think of doing it on the kitchen counter top, you should imagine a shiny, sleek and cool surface like Valcucine and not ... heaven forbid... Ikea! Do what you ask? Why fix a gourmet meal of course .. tsk, tsk... what were you thinking?

So who or what are  Valcucine? This ultra fashionable Italian kitchen brand looks set to be the next big thing in designer kitchen brands. Established by Giobanni Dino Cappellotto, Gabriele Centazzo, Franco Corbetta and Silvio Verardo in 1980 at a time when kitchen design was stiff, lack lustre and defined by lacquered boards, plastic, wood and stainless steel, the trio introduced materials like tempered alloy and tempered glass, carbon fibre and stain-proof stainless steel and also incorporated environmentally friendly materials in their design.

They emerged last year's winners of the ADI Italian Industrial Design Index 2010 for their outstanding quality, functional and typological innovation, production processes and use of materials and also bagged the ‘Best Kitchen & Materials Design Award’ with ELLE Magazine's Decoration International Design Awards (EDIDA), held in Beijing.
