Genius Loci

The hidden drawer inspired by antique secrétaires

Like the ancient secretaires, the Genius Loci kitchen has a secret, intimate, complicit space in the drawer.
An ingenious result enabled by the dematerialisation of the worktop, the under-top drawer becomes the distinctive element of the kitchen.
A precious detail, customisable with different finishes and craftsmanship, perfectly integrated with the purity of the shapes and materials.

A sign of continuity or distinction, it is the heart of customisation, the precious jewel that – with different finishes and workmanship that are also the result of excellent craftsmanship – makes the kitchen absolutely unique, with an eternal aesthetic as an expression of the taste of those who wanted it. A fundamental detail that blends perfectly with the purity of the shapes and materials of the kitchen, for a sophisticated result of the utmost research.

In the inclined version, the Genius Loci drawer can be made in different materials and finishes. From inlaid and carved woods to sculpted stone and precious metals, Valcucine recovers and reinterprets the preciousness of ancient crafts, restoring dignity and beauty to treasures of memory that risk being lost.
A tribute to Italian expertise, under the banner of the stories of excellence that have always inspired the design of our kitchens.
