FTK – Technology For the Kitchen 2018
We decided at Cookers of Distinction to attend the EuroCucina Exhibition. This is the first time we attended and definitely not the last time. We met lots of existing friends in the industrial and also new friends hoping to galvanise a exciting future
The Exhibition was Launched in 1974, the biennial International Kitchen Exhibition and its collateral event FTK (Technology For the Kitchen) is the leading showcase for high-end kitchens.
The 22nd edition of EuroCucina provided a targeted and innovative response to the huge interest in the sector, along with FTK – TechnologyFor the Kitchen, its collateral event, specialising in built-in domestic appliances and their evolution.
The key concepts driving the exhibits, showcased by 117 companies within an exhibition space measuring over 22,000 m2, were efficiency and evocation. Kitchens have ceased to be purely functional spaces to become domestic hubs, places for conviviality and socialising. This revival of the domestic hearth makes for an interconnected, multipurpose and professional space, yet one where emotions never fail to run high.
Visitors were greeted with a vast array of top quality goods. All the exhibits at EuroCucina embodied contemporary design, technological innovation, next generation performance, energy efficiency and ease of use. New shapes, colours and materials helped mark out the kitchen as a place for conviviality and interaction with the outside world.
As always, FTK – TechnologyFor the Kitchen – with 48 exhibitors on an exhibition area of 22,192 m2 – provided an overview of the state of the art technology of built-in domestic appliances, with models, prototypes and concepts conceived by companies that set tremendous store by research.
