Valcucine will present “Ecosophìa” during the Milan Design Week (17-23 April 2023), a reflection on how the company imagines the present and the future of sustainable architecture and kitchen design in relation with the sustainability and innovation values that have always been an integral part of its corporate identity. Inside the Valcucine showroom in C.so Garibaldi 99, in the Brera Design District, the company will display its new kitchen layouts, its characteristic “Special Elements” with their “magical doors”, paired with new materials and wooden finishes designed to lend a warm feel to the typical, hi-tech design.
«Timber architecture – Valcunie explains – vertical forests, passive homes, LEED-certified buildings, houses that merge with nature, redeveloped historical spaces. The outcome of an in-house lab, Ecosophìa is a new portfolio of kitchens, installed in sustainable and innovative homes; not in “impossible architectures” but in contexts that represent the new frontiers of contemporary architecture and are an ongoing source of inspiration to face current problems such as the climate and energy crises. They are inspiration for a better future».
Together with the results of the company’s in-house collaborations, at Milan Design Week 2023 Valcucine will presents the results of externals labs including significant bodies connected to the design world, such as the Domus Academy International Design School and ISIA (public university design institute).
