CONVIVIUM (design Antonio Citterio), the socialising kitchen with the table in the centre.
Birth of the Arclinea Project Division with its Hospitality, Marine and Residential offices: innovative solutions for design needs, all over the world.
LIGNUM ET LAPIS (design Antonio Citterio), the ritual kitchen / the evolution of shapes, materials and layout solutions for the convivial kitchen.
Each new model integrates with the previous ones, in order to create a system of components that are more and more versatile and compatible with each other, enabling free configuration of spaces for cooking and living, through to being able to include different moments of home life—sharing, entertaining, studying—as well, naturally, as preparing and eating food. This is the birth of the convivial kitchen that goes beyond the traditional dining-room (Convivium 2002), developed over the years into a more general idea of flexible space (Lignum et Lapis, 2008).
