The concept of the Arclinea kitchen evolves at the same pace as the cultural and social evolution of its users. Basing its combination of tradition and innovation on the criteria of functions, The Brand has modified the kitchen, in time transforming it from a show of status into a space for living, somewhere chosen for the pleasure of preparing, cooking and sharing. There is no doubt that our vision has radically reinterpreted the way kitchens are seen and used. Our approach, founded on careful analysis of the evolution of our collection, has opened two alternative routes. The design of the kitchen, the room that has always been the fulcrum for family life and activity, moves in two different directions: the large ‘socialising” kitchen with its diversified planning aspects and the ‘mimetic’ kitchen with all its totally customisable services and functions, perfect even when space is at a premium due to any reason, for improved layout in terms of multi-functionality. The Brand has applied this analysis of the processes of social change to production criteria, becoming a main player in a sector where it has introduced a new design concept, bringing the features of restaurant kitchens into the home. For a while now we have also offered ‘professional’ kitchens for top-level cuisine: tangible, rational and welcoming layouts for culinary schools. Exemplary, differentiated partnerships that seem almost to draw inspiration from our home kitchens for professional catering design. This evolved mindset, applied to various sectors, has made way for the “Arclinea Project Division”, which thanks to its Hospitality, Marine and Residential divisions is today a constantly expanding international business.
