We quote here the Treehugger’s post:

“If one was going to build the perfect kitchen you might want it to be made of a material that is easily cleaned, like glass. You would expect it to ship flat-pack to reduce transport costs. You might make it so that there are no glues, just mechanical connections so that it could be easily taken apart and reassembled in a different form. Need metal? Use recycled aluminum.
Toss in the slickest of Italian design and you have the Valcucine Invitrum. Don’t know what it costs and am afraid to ask. But it is slick and green.

Thanks to research into, and the application of, innovative technologies, Valcucine’s products have a high resistance and are thus long lasting. For example, the solid doors have been designed using a car dashboard construction technique. They are made of layers that include an external veneer and inner sheets of a special micro-fabric that together guarantee excellent elasticity and sturdiness. They can remain immersed in water for a long time because they neither have edges that can come off nor applied external finishes.

The various layers are united in a single process at a very high pressure to ensure excellent compactness to the panel.

The new base units, constructed completely in glass and aluminum, are a further example of absolute resistance to water, steam and heat.
