The sales and marketing office is staffed by architects, who draw up the plans and consult with the client at every stage in the process, from initial draft to assembly. The fact that the sales and marketing team are also designers is a source of pride for Officine Gullo. Every client is flanked by a professional who benefits from the overview of the production process and uses the skills required to evaluate the client’s requests from a technical viewpoint and research potential solutions.
The first meeting enables the designer to understand the client’s tastes, ideas and expectations – for instance, how many people they intend to host as guests and the kitchen styles they love, if a chef will be using the kitchen – as well as evaluating the space and studying the most appropriate solutions for the ambience in relation to the rest of the house. A tailored study, like tailored clothing, which perfectly fits the wearer. Once compiled, the project is submitted to the technical team to check its feasibility and functionality.
Technical approval paves the way to graphic design with 3D rendering and even Virtual Reality. High-level research results in the final projection of what the kitchen will look like in the actual home context. Only then, after final confirmation by the client, the doors open to the production workshop. That’s why Officine Gullo kitchens are unique: regardless of the features and motifs which have become hallmarks of the product, every kitchen differs because it reflects the unique wishes and individual lifestyle of its owner.
Eternal design, top performance, tradition and innovation: these are the cornerstones on which Officine Gullo has built its success as one of the leading Italian design companies worldwide.
In Officine Gullo kitchens, tailor-made structures coexist alongside innovative technology of cooking and refrigeration equipment. Design is what joins these two very different spirits, blending the tradition of artistic metalworking with precision mechanics.
“Design” does not only mean aesthetics. It also stands for planning, the arrangement of all the elements in a harmonious context, aimed at optimizing functionality, performance and ergonomics.
Officine Gullo kitchens, in addition to being technological jewels and accomplishments of high craftsmanship, are masterpieces of design, as it is only due to meticulous research and planning that these two diametrically opposed aspects can coexist harmoniously, leading to a unique product.
