Valcucine Laundry, the new social dimension of the laundry.
The washing machine has undoubtedly revolutionized household chores for women because it has freed them of centuries of tiring and time consuming work. Nevertheless, with the advent of the washing machine, the ancient dimension of doing the laundry, a time that was not only dedicated to work but was often the only way to socialise, around the washtub or at the fountain, went lost.
Since then, the laundry function has been increasingly confined to narrow, gloomy and aesthetically unpleasant places that are often mere niches for the washing machine and places to hang the laundry to dry.
Valcucine has always been committed to pursuing beauty for every room of the home and has decided to make over this space, bringing it back to life with all its values.
Valcucine Laundry is a real, complete furnishing line for the laundry area and transforms into a liveable space where you can feel good, a place designed to be practical, refined and cosy.
An open and multifunctional space in which a mini-gym or a play area can coexist with the laundry. A place to live in and share with the whole family.
Valcucine applies all its undisputable know-how to plan a “home laundry”: it designs a contemporary washtub that blends the features of bygone days with present-day shapes and materials: it invents new units to house appliances, ironing boards, customisable jumbo drawers and cupboards with a well-constructed set of accessories.
These systems have pure volumes and minimal structures in which painted steel, glass, unrolled wood, aluminium and acrylic resins are spontaneously used together.
The addition of the Protex washing machine and dryer of the Neue KolleKtion by AEG, the latest generation of appliances that guarantee perfect washing and superlative care of even the most delicate fabrics, completes the picture.
The concept of ergonomics and of transformability is the common denominator at the basis of all the Valcucine Laundry concepts.
From the raised, vibration-dampening washing machine and dryer niches to the mobile laundry baskets below them; from the tops that can be pulled out when necessary to the fold-away, heated, ironing boards with a vacuum that are adjustable in height and to the boards that cover the washtub transforming it into a practical worktop.
Everything is always designed to harmonise with the sustainability philosophy that underlies every Valcucine project.
