The Architectural integration of Valcucine’s New Logica

With the restyling of NEW LOGICA, Valcucine opens new scenarios of integration between design and architecture, envisioning a kitchen space that is dynamic and flexible.

Valcucine has always stood out for its focus on human well-being through the pursuit of solutions that enhance daily interaction with the kitchen, creating new user experiences through distinctive special elements.

Among the most innovative and recognisable special elements designed by Gabriele Centazzo, the equipped back panel New Logica is characterised by upper tilting doors and downward sliding doors that open and close smoothly to reveal its full functionality.

New Logica has been rethought, identifying three distinct areas – cooking, washing, and preparation – and re-equipped thanks to the introduction of new wooden elements designed by Gabriele Centazzo and new internal accessories in walnut, enriching the functionality of the work areas.

Among others:

  • Dish rack and glass drainer accessory optimized in size to hold four place settings to increase available space
  • Storage trays with sponge drainer function and containers + preparation kit composed of two cutting boards, knife holder, and rolling pin
  • Integrated hydroponic cultivation: a system that allows the cultivation of vegetables in water (concept)
  • Wooden shelves with bottle holder and pantry function
  • Rotating containers: the ideal solution to store condiments, jars, and spice jars in one place, keeping them organized, visible, and easily accessible.
  • Modular system with electrified track that allows portable management of electric current.

During the last Fuorisalone 2024, the New Logica system was designed, as usual, alongside Artematica, the ultimate expression of the art of pure volumes. The intuition lies in the possibility of using pure “unpaired” materials on the aluminum structure of the doors, which opens up infinite solutions and combinations. From the refined play of glass, in every color and finish, to woods with strong tactile sensations, from lacquered surfaces to metallic laminates. The expression of each client’s personal taste becomes eternal, reaching the typical uniqueness of a work of art, represented in the transparency of glass.

Aware that architectural integration is indispensable in the design of high-end kitchens, the New Logica special element is also enriched with the possibility of vertical development. The introduction of a new 5mm thick cover panel for the characteristic balance system allows for the design of additional wall units above the special element or to achieve the full verticality of the kitchen space up to the ceiling.

This solution can be installed above the New Logica balanced door, Aerius Wall System, Latus Wall Unit, and can be realized in the finishes of Artematica doors (excluding Vitrum Velato and marbles, granites, and sandstones not available, for lightweight requirements, in the tilt door) giving visual continuity to the entire interior design project.

The pursuit of integrating the kitchen seamlessly into the architectural space is further exemplified by the introduction of a new door, meticulously aligned and harmonizing with the finish of the kitchen doors. This creates a cohesive aesthetic and unexpected access points to other areas of the house.
