Valcucine’s New Kitchen Island Is Inspired By Writing Desks

Named after the Latin for 'spirit of place', the contemporary Genius Loci wall and kitchen island by Italian manufacturers Valcucine was inspired by traditional bureaus and writing desks with hidden drawers.


Valcucine introdues Genius Loci – a new range of contemporary kitchen storage units

Inside the drawers, Valcucine have configured different arrangements to help users easily access the items within. The drawers come in two options; a drawer with a slanted facade that is angled outwards toward the bottom, and a flat lying, more minimal alternative that sits flush with the kitchen doors.


The Genius Loci range can be customised to suit different interiors, with inlay options such as marble or carved wood, and metallic finishes including copper or antiques brass. The new collection has also been designed with a slimmer work surface and lower plinth height, making room for larger base units with 15% more storage space.
