The architecture of an idea

Valerio Olgiati, architect

A room is determined not by its purpose, but by the way it is perceived.

Beyond the expanse of Alentejo in Portugal, for six months out of the year Valerio and Tamara Olgiati manage their small architectural firm in the Swiss town of Flims.Valerio Olgiati has some two dozen buildings to his name, placing him at the apex of a design avant-garde and making him one of today's most influential architects. His radical style and strictly idea-driven architecture focus less on function and more on feeling. A room is determined not by its purpose, but by the way it is perceived. 

"Perfection means nothing if you can not feel it."

"But when you can feel it, 
perfection means everything."  

Perfection that 
you
 can feel 

The clean lines and authentic materials of the Excellence Line reflect Valerio Olgiati's standard of perfection. They fit seamlessly into your kitchen and create a unique atmosphere.
