The annual appointment with the London Design Festival, from 14 to 22 September, marked the official launch of new Arclinea products for 2019 at the B&B Italia Store in Brompton Road, today one of the best showrooms in the world owned by Design Holding. Founded in 2018 this is the biggest group on the top-end international design scene and its cultural heritage is of European origin. The interiors are furnished with B&B Italia, Maxalto and Arclinea collections, which go beautifully with lamps by Flos and Louis Poulsen, the group’s complementary two icon companies.
Presentation of Arclinea kitchens is enhanced by new layouts, new details and new finishes, integrating exclusive functional and instrumental elements that express unique product concepts, designed and coordinated by Antonio Citterio.
