ALL THE STEPS TO A GREAT MEAL
TIME TO COOK
To prepare a meal just like the best Italian mamma would, SMEG, which specialises in small appliances, creates a world that is full of colour with original toasters and kettles decorated with elaborate and vibrant patterns. KIN INDUSTRIE designs kitchen utensils, such as frying pans or saucepans, following the hand-crafted tradition, in the Lombardia region of Italy. Finally, VUD makes simple and long-lasting wooden cutting boards and accessories, which have both a family feel to them and a contemporary look.
On the Ground Floor
In Italy, humour and a good mood are invited to the table every day. CERAMICA ARTISTICA SOLEMENE offers vintage-inspired inspirations combining traditional techniques, such as the use of the potter’s wheel, with more modern manufacturing methods. MARIO LUCA GIUSTI produces household items, such as his multicoloured glasses, using synthetic materials, from acrylic to melamine, for an elegant and practical finish. The SALADINI brand is famous for its knives of unmatched quality, the secret to which is passed down from generation to generation. Finally, with a more minimalist style, BIALETTI designs aluminium coffee makers and cups with sleek lines and great attention to the quality of its products.
