In 1953, gifted Italian engineer Fulvio Brembilla, embarked on a mission to re-write the rules for luxury kitchen design.
Inspired by his wife Rossana, he drew upon his industrial experience, combining the latest technology, innovations and production techniques to push the prevailing boundaries.
In 1968, a successful collaboration with famed designer Giancarlo Illprandi, resulted in a range of ground breaking kitchens, immediately heralded as revolutionary by the architectural and design community. In recognition, Rossana was invited to exhibit in New York’s Museum of Modern Arts 1972 exhibition, Italy, The New Domestic Landscape.
Embracing the same spirit, Rossana continues to pioneer and has maintained its elevated position as the connoisseur’s choice, by producing luxury contemporary Italian kitchens, that precisely combine craftsmanship, technology and quality with class leading aesthetics.
Our ethos is epitomised by the sculptural form of the K in K out, which on command electronically transforms to a multi-purpose Island unit, re-defining kitchens as ‘Functional Art’
