Valcucine kitchens bring sustainability, ergonomics and innovative design into a functional and beautiful domestic environment.

Everything on hand, everything tidy in an instant.
Valcucine’s ‘New Logica’ is a revolutionary new ‘equiped back’ system designed to contain all your kitchen equipment – weighing scales, small appliances, knife block, moveable power and USB sockets, hooks and even a cooker hood. And because New Logica is plumbed, the kitchen tap and dish-drainer are hidden away in here too.
Every element is quickly concealed by the ergonomically designed cabinet doors that open and close with push of a finger.
The 80cm deep worktops allow freedom of movement. The lift-up door is fitted with a unique balancing device that makes it easy to open without the use of hinges, frictions or springs. It opens with a simple upward touch of the hand, giving total access to the interior.
Valcucine have been designing and manufacturing products for 30 years that respect the four fundamental rules of eco-compatibility: dematerialisation, recyclability, durability and reduction of toxic emissions.
Valcucine designs furniture that uses less raw materials and energy. This can be seen in Artematica -the first kitchen door in the world to have a 100% aluminium structural frame. This makes the door extremely resistant to humidity, water, heat and impacts. It’s 100% recyclable, using 65% less materials than a standard door and thanks to its unique joining system, uses no toxic glues.
