FIRENZE PIAZZA OGNISSANTI
OFFICINE GULLO HOUSE
A celebration of Italian culinary culture, its tools and excellence in the kitchen and at the table.
Piazza Ognissanti, in central Florence. Officine Gullo House is located in the superlative location of a former chapel in full Renaissance style in the Ognissanti church complex, which is famous for artworks by Giotto, Ghirlandaio and Botticelli. The House aims to be a center where Officine Gullo will present its iconic products and invite guests to embark on a culinary and historical brand experience focused on Florentine traditions. Visitors to the Officine Gullo House can expect to take part in a unique experience that
celebrates Florence’s art, history, culinary traditions and craftsmanship.
The company’s established headquarters are in Antella, nestled in the hills surrounding Florence and close to the Chianti area. Recent remodeling has added a new exhibition space to this location, where clients can acquaint themselves with the quality of Officine Gullo kitchens. Here the Design Center planners are on hand for clients who want to design a kitchen pursuant to their personal tastes. Because every kitchen is fully customizable in its composition, dimensions, colors, and finishes, the design originates from an in-depth exchange between clients and designers who interpret the wishes and culinary traits of the future proprietor. The Materials Library, on the Antella site, is an archive of materials, colors, and finishes, essential in the development of new kitchen projects. Close by, the Creative Lab houses a team of developers who hone the company’s image by curating various channels of communication and shaping projects through photo-realistic rendering and virtual reality experiences.
STRADA IN CHIANTI
The 10,000 square meter production campus is located in Strada in Chianti, near Florence, nestled in the Tuscan countryside. This is where the careful craftsmanship of metalworking meets innovative modern technology. In the Officine Gullo production process, every detail is done by hand. No assembly production or standardized components; just materials shaped by expert artisan hands catered to each order. Officine Gullo is exactly what the name says it is: a workshop where raw materials are cut, folded, and shaped by hand to craft everlasting works of art. This is where clients witness how the quest for absolute quality has met modernism, enabling industrial production to rediscover artisanship as its ultimate expression. Because of this, every young craftsperson undertakes a tailored training course when they begin their career in the Officine Gullo workshops. Like in the workshops of old, this teaching is practical and takes place under the guidance of master artisans. The aim is to cultivate a future heritage of expertise and artistry within the company that has made Italian artisanal crafts unique worldwide.
