Italian kitchen company Officine Gullo is set to open a UK showroom in Westminster, London on March 19, 2020.
The Florence-based company creates professional-style kitchens for domestic environments, including heavy steel built-in furniture, complete with appliances, sinks and taps.
Pietro Gullo commented: “Our noble materials, concept and style have always been appreciated by metal connoisseurs in the UK, who understand the material’s aesthetic and functional value.
“London’s architecture shows that there is a strong relationship with metal, so often chosen for the realisation of fences, gates, balconies, staircases and handrails.
“We began to work with the UK, here in Italy, with British owners of Tuscan villas who restored them choosing our kitchens.
“Starting from this experience, we decided to strengthen the relationship between our markets with a local showroom in London.
“Our investment reflects the mutual appreciation between our countries.”
He continued: “Italy’s relationship with Britain is one of the strongest and deepest. We share interests, tastes and passions, as the one for good design, premium quality and good living.”
In addition, the company will launch its latest kitchen collection Contemporanea at Milan Design Week.
Featuring a clean aesthetic, it is a modern interpretation of the company’s kitchens.
Officine Gullo named interior architect and furniture designer Alison Henry as brand ambassador for the company in the UK, having unveiled a collaboration with the company at Decorex in 2018.
