Convivium is open space, a kitchen as an agile organised area, where being together becomes something to share anew every day, a place where a whole series of concrete actions – storing, preparing, cooking – are turned into rituals and emotions. Aromas in the kitchen tell of familiar tales or distant places, old recipes are handed down and new ones experimented and most importantly, everyone eats together around the big table. Convivium furnishes the walls of a room that becomes warm, welcoming and functional, with island-table in the centre and canopy shelves running round the whole room at picture rail height.
CONVIVIUM ISLAND + MODUS SYSTEM
Convivium provides home architecture with extraordinary solutions, like this layout with the large convivial island in the centre, doors in PVD bronze stainless steel and Era, the built-in table. Alongside the island, wood panelling with Modus horizontal folding doors designs an architectonic volume that contains the storage and washing area. Two different functional solutions for the new Dresser complete the room. Fumé oak, bronze PVD stainless steel and Carrara marble set the style for a layout solution characterised by several distinctive elements, such as the worktop in Carrara marble with drip guard for the hob, sink, wooden chopping boards, PaperStone® grids and, in the centre, the new accessorised channel in stainless steel. Attention to detail stands out in the shaped solid wood edging on the Era table, exclusive wire accessories around the washing area, and versatile complete internal accessories in teak.

CONVIVIUM ISLAND WITH UP & DOWN TABLE
With Convivium, the kitchen becomes an open, organised area, where solutions are the outcome of their location. The main star of this project by Antonio Citterio, in 2002, is the convivial island, with a 20 cm thick worktop integrating the big Up-Down wooden table, an exclusive Arclinea project. The top has a variable height of 75 to 90 cm thanks to an oleodynamic system so that it can be used either for food preparation or as a dining table. The Convivium island for everyday rituals has, over time, become a ‘cult’, continuing to make the kitchen a unique experience, a place where sharing opens up to include cooking and vice versa, in a continual interlacing of relationships.
