SAN DIEGO MAGAZINE
Vol 58, No. 12 / October 06
Hot New Line: Arclinea has opened a showroom in Park West, at 2515 Fifth Avenue, one of just eight Arclinea kitchen distributors in the United States. The stunning store is arranged to give shoppers an up-close view of the latest in Euro kitchen design, including snazzy innovations like a built-in ultraviolet light to grow herbs.
The showroom highlights the Arclinea Collection, designed by Italian architect Antonio Citterio, known for his designs for B&B Italia and Flos, among others. Hallmarks of the line are its modernist stainless steel and wood design and step-saving functionality any chef can appreciate. The San Diego site is the first U.S. showroom to feature the newest Artusi kitchen, introduced at this year’s Eurocucina in Milan. Artusi is ultimately flexible, made of freestanding working units in steel and [grey oak]*.
