Absolute precision must be guaranteed throughout the design and manufacturing stages, from technical drawings to the optimization and final testing of the produced piece. Here are some examples of precision mechanics in Officine Gullo kitchens
“SALTALEONE” DOOR CLOSURE SYSTEMS
Officine Gullo prefers a mechanical solution with an old soul, indestructible and everlasting (unlike modern magnetic or ball closure systems).
The corners are made by cutting into an 8mm thick brass sheet. They hold together the inner part of the doors in our high-thickness metal kitchens. The doors are made from 1.5cm thick pure metal.
The hinges are manufactured exclusively in solid brass using the ground casting method. This technique consists of casting the molten metal in a mold made from special ground (foundry ground), which is broken at the end of the process to remove the piece. This manufacturing method dates to the nineteenth century, when prestigious all-metal kitchens, made to measure for noble villas, became an object of desire for the upper-middle classes throughout Europe.
STEEL WORK SURFACES
Compared with industrialized modular and standard techniques, our manufacturing takes inspiration from the ancient art of bronzesmiths, enabling differently sized high-thickness surfaces of up to 4mm, which are folded and welded nonstop as one continuous flat work surface, measuring up to 4 meters (12 feet) long.
Manufactured in brass, the rod that runs the entire length of the kitchen is useful for holding utensils and pots throughout the various stages of cooking, like in the kitchens in old villas of nobles.
Officine Gullo cooking ranges are equipped with powder-coated baseboards and adorned with brass details. They are reminiscent of the baseboards of old cast-iron stoves, now made even more functional as they can be removed for easy cleaning.
CRAFTING RECESSED SINKS
Officine Gullo sinks are welded by hand. Unlike industrial production in which metal plates are thinned in the pressing stage, Officine Gullo sinks are made exclusively from high-thickness metal.
ENGRAVING ON REQUEST
All Officine Gullo products can be personalized by engraving designs or decorations dear to the customer on panels and handles.
