CONVIVIUM

Design by Antonio Citterio.

CONVIVIUM is open living space, a kitchen as an organised area, where solutions are the outcome of their location. The main feature of this 2002 project by Antonio Citterio is the socialising island, with its 20 cm thick worktop and built-in wooden table, for food preparation, cooking and eating and, alongside it, the walk-in ‘Closet’ with doors that hide the technical zone and storage area: made to fit, it helps organise not only activity in the house, but also its architectonic layout. The Convivium island for everyday rituals has, over time, become a cult, continuing to make life in the kitchen unique: where socialising opens up to include cooking and vice versa, in a continual interlacing of relationships.
