The concept that reveals a new kitchen experience
A single touch is all it takes to release the innovative power of Logica Celata, the latest brainchild resulting
from ingenious research aimed at reinventing ergonomics.
Thanks to an advanced, counterweight balancing mechanism the door glides gently upwards to reveal the
whole work area: a large, fully-customisable space. Various interior options are available i.e. a kitchen, a bar,
a food preparation area and a storage. Each of these is provided with accessories and functions designed to
meet its specific needs. In these configurations, everything is ready to be used as efficiently as possible.
Lightly and noiselessly, reminiscent of an ancient sallet – the helmet that used to completely cover the head
of medieval knights – at the end the door closes flush with the underlying base units.

CELATA REVEALS A BAR
The bar stands out from the other Logica Celata configurations because it is an all-Italian tradition typical of the Italian way of life, touching conviviality and intimacy and the public and private spheres.
The door opens to reveal Valcucine’s new home bar: practical, well-organised and complemented by all the equipment required for impeccable wine tasting, to mix up a perfect cocktail or prepare an excellent espresso, served to please any connoisseur.
Once shut, Logica Celata becomes an elegant piece of furniture that is further beautified by Vitrum Arte customised surfaces: a special technique developed by Valcucine to reproduce inlaid designs on glass.
Just like a compelling picture, the “Camparisoda, con noi sempre e ovunque” advert created for Campari in the 60s by Franz Marangolo, an illustrator from Milan, is freely interpreted in a playful style that expresses all the love of life typical of that decade.
The door moves upwards, giving full access to the work area including a hob, extractor and a wash area. The best accessories developed by Valcucine in recent years, such as the power strip and the accessorised shelf complemented by a chopping-board rack, knife-rack and bottle-rack turn cooking into an effortless ritual.
The extraordinary inlay technique is an extremely innovative process that, however, still requires the patient and essential work of man. Exclusive projects are thus created, perfectly poised between art and design.
