Italian kitchen manufacturer Valcucine has added the Genius Loci kitchen to their stunning portfolio. Designed by Gabriele Centazzo, his compelling design is inspired by a traditional bureau style writing desk complete with secret drawers.

With everything close to hand, the drawers, either angled or flush fitted, can be customised using a series of different craft techniques – including inlaid or carved wood or marble – and a range of finishes such as copper or antiqued brass.

The Genius Loci kitchen also boasts Valcucine’s Air Logica System. This ridiculously practical back panel features multiple pull-out sections designed to conceal all the less-than-glamorous kitchen essentials including dish drainer, scales, kitchen roll and utensils.

Shown here with quartz grey glass doors in both gloss and matt finishes, with textured oak Rovere Tattile Brunito drawers. All Valcucine kitchens are 100% recyclable, use only sustainable timbers and materials with zero emissions of formaldehyde.
