Arclinea has always carefully analysed social and cultural changes, and working on the design aspect through development of innovative concepts that, in time, have helped to modify, often unequivocally, how kitchens are seen and used. The Professional, Convivial and Hidden kitchens are the main Concepts conceived over the years, innovations that follow and anticipate evolution of spaces and architecture in the home.

Antonio Citterio

Architect and designer, he opened his own firm in 1972. Antonio Citterio is currently collaborating in the industrial design sector with Italian and international companies such as Ansorg, Arclinea, Axor-Hansgrohe, B&B Italia, Flexform, Flos, Hermès, Iittala, Kartell, Maxalto, Sanitec (Geberit Group), Technogym, and Vitra. He received the Compasso d’Oro-ADI award in 1987 and 1994. In 2000 he founded a design company with Patricia Viel. This operates on an international level, developing architectural and interior design projects.

In addition to kitchen innovation, another strategic objective for Arclinea is that every new product must fit with the others, in line with an original system concept. Collaboration with Citterio led to the birth of the professional kitchen (with Italia, way back in 1988, and Artusi in 1997), of the convivial room that is more than a traditional dining-room (Convivium, 2002), later enhanced with a wonderful solid monolith (Lignum et Lapis, 2008), through to a new idea of flexible convivial space, with Spatia (2010) and Principia (2016/8). All innovations that follow and anticipate the evolution of cooking spaces, and all at the service of a design approach that embraces change, with which Arclinea intends to keep alive the great Italian tradition, reworked thanks to more precise design of functions, materials, shapes and everyday living spaces.
