INTRODUCING THE CONTEMPORANEA COLLECTION, SIMPLE MODERN ELEGANCE
Artisan traditions are explored through original designs, which conceal a simple aesthetic alongside advanced techniques and functionality. The Contemporanea Collection is the revolutionary new style addition to Officine Gullo kitchens, a modern take on the company’s iconic kitchens.
ONLY NOBLE METALS
What makes Contemporanea kitchens unique is the choice of materials from which they are crafted. We only use noble metals, such as high-thickness steel for the structure and solid brass for the finishes. The Contemporanea Collection comprises modern kitchens in which metal is the central element. An outsider in a market for which the elegance of steel is frequently reduced to artificiality through lacquering and texturing, and in which the words “metallic colour/effect” are all too often used. In this new Officine Gullo collection, steel is the only material used, alongside brass explored in various finishes. This is a contemporary and curated concept for steel connoisseurs who understand the material’s aesthetic and functional value. The Contemporanea Collection is a product of the expertise honed by Officine Gullo: technological knowledge that harnesses this material’s expressive potential and versatility. Steel acquires style in the Contemporanea Collection, looking to the future and destined to endure over time.
The furnishings have pure aesthetic and functional value with straightforward, contemporary forms in which every element is designed – and arranged in the space – to be functional and practical. The Contemporanea Collection embodies youthful, contemporary luxury, the epitome of the highest expressions of design, craftsmanship and technology.
THE KITCHEN AS A LUXURY CAR
Like in a dashing luxury car, a modern technological heart beats in Contemporanea Collection kitchens, while the simply designed bodywork is built using the finest materials, as in all Officine Gullo creations: steel plates measuring up to 3mm in thickness and finished with precious solid brass details. The technology used to paint the kitchen structure is the same used in the car world: powder coating. The result is a water-resistant robust paint that withstands impact much more than traditional paints.
Officine Gullo recommends two materials for the tops in the Contemporanea Collection: stainless steel and marble. Both materials are famous for their hygiene, water resistance, easy cleaning and ability to withstand impact, abrasion and heat.
Stainless steel is the material that has the most visual impact on the kitchen space. Synonymous of strength, this material stays the same over time, resistant to bacteria and heat, and practical in terms of everyday management.
Marble epitomizes elegance. It provides immediate beauty, regardless of the space, and is resistant to impact, cuts and abrasions. Marble endures over time and remains extremely hygienic.
WOODEN DIVIDERS AND INTERIORS
For Contemporanea Collection kitchens, Officine Gullo recommends a selection of joinery accessories for drawer interiors. These solutions are the hallmark of efficiency and functionality, designed to organize storage space in kitchens. Walnut and oak containers to keep cutlery, utensils and knives tidy, as well as glass jars for spices and bottles.
Structured like the rest of the kitchen, the built-in appliances beautify and enhance the kitchen space, enabling technology to pair perfectly with the style of Officine Gullo.
