EuroCucina 2024: design and technology shape the kitchen of the future

The biennial EuroCucina returns for its 2024 edition, showcasing new concepts for the home with an emphasis on taste and social connections. The contemporary kitchen, increasingly a central feature of home design, is now seen as an open, fluid, multifunctional space that transcends its traditional technical and practical roles, embodying the philosophy of total living and becoming a theater of daily life, relationships, and connections. This is the direction taken by the innovative interpretations presented at the Salone del Mobile by prestigious brands such as Boffi, Molteni&C, Poliform, Lago, and Arclinea, redefining the notion of kitchen by blending design, technology, and sustainability.

Among the top ten indoor and outdoor kitchens presented at Milan Design Week, the Novanta kitchen, designed by Piero Lissoni to celebrate Boffi's 90th anniversary, stands out with a recessed base that gives the impression that the structure is levitating above the floor. The combination of islands and storage elements creates a system reminiscent of urban architecture. Material choices, from MDi to stainless steel, showcase Boffi's constant search for new architectural and tactile innovations, building on its rich industrial design heritage.

The VVD kitchen by Vincent Van Duysen for Molteni&C evolves with new elements and finishes for 2024.

New features include a 150 mm thick marble top, a 2700K dimmable LED lighting system integrated into the covers, and new finishes like Rosso Levanto marble, enhancing its refined aesthetic.

Among the latest solutions from the world of home appliances is the new design by Patricia Urquiola for Signature's undercounter, convertible Refrigerator. Mantle is a sculptural, modular, freestanding cabinet, offered in cimento and natural or stained wood versions in Vanilla, Blue, Burgundy, Green, and Sand. The designer's idea was to integrate Signature Kitchen Suite's technology into a piece of furniture that adapts to any space, transforming the appliance into a design masterpiece.

In the evocative setting of "The Elevation of Gravity," Gaggenau's architectural installation at Milan Design Week, new additions to the collection are unveiled. The Essential Induction is the focal point of the brand's experience.

Gaggenau also previews a new generation of cooling systems that set advanced standards for the industry, both technologically and aesthetically.

In the year of its 125th anniversary, Miele presents new products through an immersive experience that enlivens the exhibition booth under the theme "The Pulse of Every Kitchen."
