Cinqueterre features a careful choice of materials such as aluminium and marble.

Schiffini, a renowned manufacturer of high-end kitchen furniture, unveiled the new version of its iconic “Cinqueterre” kitchen by Vico Magistretti, reimagined by Toan Nguyen, the brand’s Creative Director, at the Milan Design Week 2024 last month.

Cinqueterre features a careful choice of materials such as aluminium and marble, granting it elegance, luminosity and a unique feel to the touch.

Originally unveiled over a decade ago as the first kitchen made entirely out of aluminium, Cinqueterre is a refined, conceptual design in which the material used to make the concealed components and structures are also revealed on the outside.

“Faithful to its bond with its homeland, Schiffini chooses not to stick to tradition, introducing a kitchen that refuses plainness and values the natural ageing of its materials, as an additional value capable of bestowing further elegance,” says a spokesman for the Italian company.

Schiffini has always elevated ‘Made in Italy’ craftsmanship and design towards new standards, thanks to innovative and far-sighted creative directions, capable of shaking up the market with kitchen layouts that combine satisfying aesthetics and practicality, he adds.

Schiffini, the company from Liguria with nearly one century of experience, was acquired by Scic Italia, the producer of design kitchens, last year.

“Regenerating the Schiffini brand on the market represents a great challenge and a major privilege,” said Lorenzo Marconi Fornari, CEO of Scic Italia. “Schiffini is not just a brand, but a piece of history of Italian design, at home and around the world. It was a great inspiration for our founder, Renzo Fornari, and remains a reference point for anyone working in our sector, with a historical perspective.”
