To innovate

Kitchen expressions

The quality is hidden in the normality of everyday life, just look for it. The innovations introduced by Luigi Massoni seem to leave a legacy in the kitchen which has changed meaning and contents thanks to him.

Very first handle less kitchen model

No handles!

Frontrunner in the kitchen: it was the first to showcase wall and base units without handles and with a simple pressure opening. A revolution that has made Xila unique and timeless.

The module as standard

Flexible and adaptable to any environment

Xila inherits the innovation introduced by the previous E15 of 1965. Emulating the building standards based on 15 cm and multiples, it sets fixed modularity for the kitchen units.

Xila

Description

Modular kitchen system designed by Luigi Massoni in 1972, recognized among the masterpieces of Italian design as the first kitchen available without handle. The door opening on the base units is allowed by a shaped aluminium profile (upper handle-rail). The base units, with two or more drawers, can be fitted with a middle handle-rail or a push-opening, giving a minimalist design aspect. The tall units can be opened through vertical aluminium profile spacers on the sides. Worktops, panels and fronts are available in a wide range of finishes. Over the years this kitchen has been updated with new materials, including painted frosted glass (doors and tops) and aluminium (doors), becoming always more sophisticated and textured. Xila kitchen is now available in the new composite MDI: a high-performance material, made of high-purity minerals soft to the touch, hygienic and nontoxic, highly resistant, made of recycled materials, so totally ecological. The basin-effect worktop that includes the built-in equipped track Inside System Top, can have multiple functions thanks to compatibility with Inside accessories, the elegant long hanging bar for ladles or other accessories, equipped with LED lighting and the totally integrated downdraft hood.
