The Arclinea response to this complexity has always been to marry technical and practical precision, the innovation of shape and that of space together with the decision, taken many years ago, to work with the designer Antonio Citterio, to produce not only accessories and furnishings, but new architectures for living. Each innovation anticipates the evolution of cooking spaces, always at the service of a design approach that embraces the change with which Arclinea intends to keep alive the great Italian tradition, enhanced thanks to more precise design of tools, materials, shapes and everyday spaces.
Contributing to improvement of the quality of life is, for Arclinea, the real commitment that has guided business choices made over the years and which is evident in all the scopes of its projects. Quality, also intended as protection, therefore, striving to fulfil all the measures needed to respect man and the environment in an industrial sector. An ability for work organisation, perfect integration of the relationship between man and machine, optimisation of times and human resources - these are the ingredients that have made Arclinea one of the companies on the cutting edge of the Italian furnishing industry.
The company was set up in Caldogno in 1925 with the name of its founder, Silvio Fortuna Senior, who resumed the business started by his great-grandfather in 1816 and interrupted a century later by the war. In 1960 the company became “Arclinea Cucine Componibili”, where Arc stands for Arredamento Razionale Componibile (Rational Modular Furniture) and it shifted towards series production, leaving behind its artisan aspect and dedicating all its production energy to kitchen furnishings. Arclinea’s mission is to harmonize creativity and technology, conviviality and functionality, through innovative solutions for spaces that improve our quality of life.
