FULGOR MILANO Unveils New Matteo Collection at KBIS 2023
Italian luxury appliance manufacturer Fulgor Milano introduced the Matteo Collection - their newest series of quality kitchen appliances coming to the North American market, at the Kitchen & Bath Industry Show, held on January 31 - February 2, 2023, in Las Vegas.
Initially scheduled for a later North American launch date, the timeline for the Matteo Collection was accelerated as a result of direct input from select North American design influencers. The Matteo Collection will have an availability target date through select North American showrooms as of November 2023.
“Our new Matteo Collection was conceived by combining a modernistic and streamline design combined with a superior quality Fulgor Milano is recognized for,” says Gianni Meneghetti, CEO of Fulgor Milano. “Our vision was a contemporary product design that was functional and simple while remaining refined and perfectly executed. The matte black or stainless steel finish allows for seamless integration into any transitional or modern kitchen concept.”
Meticulously handcrafted in Italy with the utmost attention to detail, Fulgor Milano’s new Matteo Collection combines a modern minimalist design, with timeless classic lines. The streamlined design maintains a sleek, contemporary look while amplifying the functionality of the appliances.
Named in honor of Tiziana Meneghetti’s son and President of Fulgor Milano, Gianni Maneghetti’s nephew, the collection will include induction and gas cooktops, wall ovens, specialty ovens, and built-in coffee systems. The collection will be available in both stainless steel and a striking, matte black finish, with the option of choosing between several sizes that integrate seamlessly into the backdrop of any kitchen. This is the first time Fulgor Milano is offering their wall oven concept in the popular matte black, a unique finish that complements their Sofia Professional or Distinto collections.
During a trip to Fulgor Milano’s headquarters in Bassano del Grappa, Italy in October 2022, a group of select North American designers had the opportunity to see the Matteo Collection firsthand. Captivated by the matte black option and the modernized design, the enthusiastic feedback and exclamations from the designers encouraged Fulgor Milano to fast-track the collection’s North American launch.
“The North American design community is a priority for us and hearing this feedback from these industry professionals was the validation we needed to expedite our distribution timeline,” continues Meneghetti. “We’re thrilled to bring our latest collection to the market and excited to see how Matteo inspires North American design.”
