Multi-award winning K&B designer Angela Gianakis attended this year’s EuroCucina and could barely contain her excitement about the cutting-edge displays.

EuroCucina is one of Europe’s most anticipated kitchen and bathroom designer exhibitions and is held every second year at the Milan Fairgrounds in Rho, Italy.

Part of the broader context of Milan’s Salone de Mobile exhibition, EuroCucina showcases the very latest in high quality, stylish and well-made kitchens and bathrooms from Italian and foreign manufacturers and designers, and attracts kitchen and bathroom professionals from around the globe.

I was one of the thousands of these to arrive in Milan – off to see what is arguably the most prestigious and monitored fair in the world. All train stations had signs detailing how to get to Rho: clearly the organisers were prepared for a great volume of traffic. And there was a sea of people all pushing to get onto the trains, standing room only once on board, and one arriving every five minutes.
