A window on emerging art worldwide and an essential cultural event for lovers of contemporary art. This is Artissima, the International Contemporary Art exhibition in Turin, Italy, that from the 5th to the 7th November 2010 presents a list of exclusive galleries at the height of fame in terms of quality of the works exhibited and the artists they represent.

In this context, Artissima and Valcucine and Artissima become partners to promote, together, an alliance between art and quality design. For the 17th edition of Artissima, Valcucine makes its business culture available and exhibits its kitchens in the Vip Lounge. The star of the show is the Artematica Vitrum Arte kitchen, a line that features the possibility of reproducing drawings and pictures on the doors using the inlay technique and leaving room to creativity that is expressed by customising the glass fronts: decors that are patiently handmade so that each kitchen arrangement becomes inimitable and unique. The cupboard units have been specifically produced for this occasion and are decorated by a drawing created by Alessandro Mendini. An island consisting in 100% recyclable Invitrum base units in the elegant white version is shown alongside it: recycled aluminium parts, a single structural side panel in 10mm thick glass and mechanical joints that do not use glue make up this kitchen that can be completely dismantled at the end of its life cycle.

On the 4th November 2010 there will be the press preview, the collectors’ preview (by invitation) and vernissage (by invitation). The exhibition wil be open to the public on November 5th-6th-7th 2010 from 12 to 8 pm.
