The company was established in 1925 with the name of its founder, Silvio Fortuna Senior, who took up the artisanal carpentry business begun back in 1816. In 1960, Arclinea moved towards the production of kitchen furniture collections. In 1963 Arclinea presented Claudia, the first kitchen with built-in electrical appliances and stainless steel hob. In the early eighties the desire was felt to collaborate with designers outside the company. The relationship with Antonio Citterio strengthened, and towards the end of the nineties, he became the company’s main designer. Over the course of recent decades, Arclinea has brought about a clear-cut change in kitchen behaviour and habits. For Arclinea, design is not only expressed through form and functions, but is also capable of turning spaces into a place of experience, creativity, pleasure, and passion. Aclinea is a prestigious international brand, the perfect ambassador of Made in Italy in the world, operates in both retail and contract with the divisions: residential, hospitality, marine.
