Curvalinear Collaborative Kitchens - La Cucina Alessi.
La Cucina Alessi is a full range of kitchen furniture and product designs that are a collaborative effort between Alessi, Valcucine and Oras. The kitchens are designed by Alessandro Mendini for ALESSI, the furniture and hoods are produced by Valcucine, and the faucets by Oras.

The counter tops, cabinetry, and laminates (patterned and solid) are modern and functional. In addition to being aesthetically pleasing, the kitchen designs have ample workspace, smart storage solutions and are easy to clean for the serious cook. There are lots of thoughtful and unique design touches as well.
