Design community invited to see firsthand the new collection, driven in part by feedback direct from North American designers
Las Vegas, NV (January 12, 2023) – Italian luxury appliance manufacturer Fulgor Milano is set to once again “Wow” attendees at the 2023 Kitchen & Bath Industry Show (KBIS), happening January 31 to February 3rd, 2023, in Las Vegas, Nevada. The brand will showcase distinctive designs and innovation at booth #W3727, in addition to introducing the latest collection coming to the North American market, a launch happening in part as a result of direct input from select North American design influencers.
“We’re excited to be exhibiting at KBIS once again with the opportunity to meet one-on-one with designers, media and our customers. With so much in the works for Fulgor Milano, it’s our chance to show attendees first-hand the innovation and beautiful design we’ll be offering in 2023 and beyond,” says Stephen Polloni, President of The Vetta Group, Fulgor Milano’s North American office. “The show allows us to connect with kitchen design professionals – touching on trends, discussing the latest industry news and walking them through new brand offerings. We have much exciting news to share for 2023, and KBIS is the place to do it.”
Exclusively launching at KBIS 2023
Launching at KBIS is Fulgor Milano’s latest series, the new Matteo Collection, offering contemporary and sleek matte black appliances with a streamlined look built with impeccable quality and design the brand is known for. The collection was originally scheduled to launch in Canada and the US later in 2023/ 2024; however, the timeline for North American distribution was fast-tracked following enthusiastic feedback from a group of North American designers during a trip to the Fulgor Milano factory in Italy last year. Meticulously handcrafted in Italy with the utmost attention to detail, the Matteo Collection will include a wall oven, coffee machine inserts and a gas cooktop in stainless steel or a dramatic matte black finish to integrate seamlessly into the backdrop of any kitchen and can complement the Sofia Professional or Distinto collections. This is the first time Fulgor Milano is offering their wall oven concept in the popular matte black finish.

To extend the life of this unique range even further or offer a touch of color to a kitchen, Fulgor Milano provides the option to personalize their ranges with interchangeable door kits available in standard stainless steel and six exquisite matte and glossy colors to offer a flexible and sustainable solution to extends the design life of the range.

The brand will extend the opportunity for guests to wind down after a busy show day and experience a touch of Italy through good food and drink.
