Harmony Definition /ˈhɑːməni/
agreement of ideas, feelings, or actions, or a pleasing combination of different parts:
A core foundation of Valcucine’s philosophy is wellbeing. Our definition of wellbeing is based on people living in perfect harmony with their surrounding environment – this is the motivation behind all of our luxury Italian kitchen designs.
Wellbeing is also integrated into our logo design, with the four ‘petals’ representing each of the four elements – fire, water, earth and air. These four elements merge in the center of the depiction, where Man is present (represented by the unbroken circumference), who in this way becomes the element in which harmony is explicated.
This year, Valcucine has installed a new Italian kitchen in our Cape Town showroom to demonstrate how our luxury kitchens have the ability to create harmony in your home. Harmony is applied to the kitchen design and functionality, with each aspect carefully considered from the high-quality finishes to the final ergonomic kitchen design.
This newly imported kitchen combines two Valcucine kitchen programmes – the Riciclantica and Artematica kitchens. This effectively proves how Valcucine’s Italian designs can work in harmony with one another, while providing clients the freedom of movement and space.
Each imported kitchen has a sophisticated finish range that is unique to that particular Italian kitchen programme. Riciclantica stands for resilience and lightness, which comes through in all elements of the Italian kitchen design. The Riciclantica base units have a lead aluminum finish of only 2mm thickness. Valcucine constantly strives to use less material, in order to work in harmony with our environment and to ensure sustainability.
The Artematica kitchen island effectively showcases the different thicknesses available for high-quality kitchen countertops. We have used a 10mm glass countertop, accompanied by an 80mm stone countertop with a 2 mm brass metal trim. Valcucine is working on their own range of sustainable countertops, called Vitrum Mimesis, a new technique where they recreate the appearance on glass surfaces of different types of stone, including the most precious types of marble and even onyx, a material that is now very rare and therefore extremely valuable.
The new kitchen showroom renovation also displays some of our incredible kitchen special features. The newest Italian kitchen display showcases the Aerius wall unit as well as the Logica Techa equipped back section. Both of these special kitchen units apply the basic principle of gravity in their counterweight systems. This ensures the opening and closing is effortless for the user – a feeling of pure harmony. Once these high-quality kitchen features are opened, gravity holds them in place to ensure an unobtrusive cooking experience.
We put people and their well-being at the centre of what we do; stimulating their senses to bring about joy in everyday activities. This is our definition of harmony, and the reason we innovate for life.
We invite you to visit our Cape Town showroom to see the newest Italian kitchen designs for yourself. You are also welcome to email firstname.lastname@example.org to get more information on our Italian offering.
