Convivium Island with Up & Down Table

Island kitchens from Arclinea, Designed by Antonio Citterio

Product description

With Convivium, the kitchen becomes an open, organised area, where solutions re the outcome of their location. The main star of this project by Antonio Citterio, in 2002, is the convivial island, with a 20 cm thick worktop integrating the big Up-Down wooden table, an exclusive Arclinea project. The top has a variable height of 75 to 90 cm thanks to an oleodynamic system so that it can be used either for food preparation or as a dining table. The Convivium island for everyday rituals has, over time, become a ‘cult’, continuing to make the kitchen a unique experience, a place where sharing opens up to include cooking and vice versa, in a continual interlacing of relationships.


Convivium is open space, a kitchen as an agile organised area, where being together becomes something to share anew every day, a place where a whole series of concrete actions – storing, preparing, cooking – are turned into rituals and emotions. Aromas in the kitchen tell of familiar tales or distant places, old recipes are handed down and new ones experimented and most importantly, everyone eats together around the big table. Convivium furnishes the walls of a room that becomes warm, welcoming and functional, with island-table in the centre and canopy shelves running round the whole room at picture rail height.
