Artusi is strength, rigour and design awareness. A project by Antonio Citterio that was the outcome of development and amplification of the innovative criteria of Italia, translating them into multi-purpose, independent, ergonomic steel units. Resolute and powerful yet extremely flexible, Artusi offers complete freedom for personalised home kitchen layout and design. Wood, lacquers and laminates join forces with steel to give a wide range of personal solutions. Artusi has been modernised over the years, leading it to become the highest example today of the professional kitchen specifically for the home.
Cooking even in the garden.
Today Arclinea also provides a concrete answer for the planning of outdoor cooking areas. The new Artusi Island becomes a true unique 'outdoor' kitchen, like every Arclinea product, conceived and presented as a real space - a kitchen for living and using. Artusi (designed by Antonio Citterio 1999), in its main free-standing version, is still today the perfect synthesis of design, ergonomics and function.
Created after the success of Italia (designed by Antonio Citterio 1988), the first kitchen to take professional catering criteria into the home kitchen, the essentiality and compactness of Artusi takes credit for what is perhaps the best example of professional cuisine, thought up and translated into the home setting.
Since the 1990s at the latest, the successful architect has also been one of the most internationally sought-after designers, as is clear from the portfolio of renowned companies for which he works: world leading design brands such as Vitra and B&B Italia (furniture), Arclinea (kitchens) and Hansgrohe (bathrooms)
