Catalogue excerpts

Sustainability driven innovation Day after day, sustainability and innovation are the driving forces behind our work. Technology, product functionality and innovative solutions, cutting-edge design and research are as vital and as important as our imagination and as the care we take over detail, as our passion for natural materials and for handicraft workmanship, as the attention we pay to the quality of life, to safety and to respect for the environment. Gabriele Centazzo, designer

Art, beauty, nature. At the Valcucine headquarters where our ofces are immersed in natural surroundings, our love for nature becomes tangible: large windows overlook a long, gently undulating, tree-lined garden. Light, architecture, art and design permeate every space. The air is saturated with imaginative thinking and pursuit of beauty. Here Man can really live in harmony with nature.

Valcucine’s guidelines Man and nature have always been the two mainstays of Valcucine. To reduce its impact on the environment and in line with its on-going research to improve the quality of life, for years our company has been designing and manufacturing products that respect the four fundamental rules of eco-compatibility: dematerialisation, recyclability, reduction of toxic emissions and durable aesthetics and techniques. . Reduction of toxic emissions Long aesthetic/technical life

dematerialisation The Earth’s resources are limited and the request for raw materials is growing increasingly: we can’t afford to carry on wasting them. Valcucine designs and constructs high-quality furniture that uses less materials than traditional furniture and as little energy as possible while maintaining its sturdiness and design. The carcasses are reduced to the essentials while the strength of the project is expressed to the utmost degree in a feeling of lightness mixed with sturdiness. The Valcucine door is made using 85% less than the material required to produce a traditional chipboard...

recyclability and reusability To respect the environment, Valcucine manufactures products with their entire life-cycle in mind. In particular, they are designed so that the materials they are composed of can be easily recognised and sorted when they are discarded. For example, the Riciclantica door has a frame made entirely and exclusively of aluminium. Even the joints of this patented system are in aluminium, making this the only frame in the world that is 100% recyclable without having to be disassembled.

reduction of toxic emissions Valcucine carries out random analyses on materials to check for the presence of volatile substances and formaldehyde that are dangerous for our health. The aluminium and glass carcasses and drawer and jumbo drawer structures reduce formaldehyde emissions to zero. The water-based varnishes we use for the wooden parts of our furniture also drastically reduce the toxic substances produced by synthetic solvents.

Long technical life Valcucine is the rst furniture manufacturer in the world to have produced a door in aluminium and layered laminate. Two materials that are completely resistant to water and heat and that offer unmatched mechanical features compared to common chipboard or MDF doors.

long technical life: tested quality Valcucine has always focused on sustainable development by means of an on-going commitment that makes it possible to substantially reduce the environmental impact of its production. Our consistent and constant dedication to eco-friendly production, led us to be the rst Italian kitchen cabinet makers to obtain the UNI EN ISO 14001 environmental certication in 2001. Other prestigious certications followed suit. We carry out rigorous quality and material resistance tests on every element that composes our kitchens in the Valcucine Laboratory every day. To mention...

long aesthetic life: a design that surpasses trends Choices based on a clean-cut and linear design, on innovation and on attention to detail guarantee the long aesthetic life of Valcucine products. Few projects survive passing trends and surpass the barriers of time: the Artematica kitchen is one of these. We have been producing it for more than 25 years and it has rightly become part of the history of Italian design without having undergone substantial modications. 2013
