Launched by celebrity chef Aldo Zilli at an exclusive Mayfair party in 2012, the ‘Fiore di Cristallo’ designer kitchen boasts a long list of luxury fittings. From its crystal island, Swarovski chandelier and crystal fronted cabinetry to copper clad hand crafted appliances, this kitchen is certainly a masterpiece of design.

“Claudio, in my mind, is an inspiration to all interior designers out there; whether you’re designing a kitchen, a whole house and indeed, one of my restaurants. As far as I’m concerned this kitchen, the ‘Fiore di Cristallo,’ to me is the equivalent of a kilo of white truffles on my pasta. In other words, Claudio has combined innovative design with functionality faultlessly. This is ultimate luxury at its best.”   – Aldo Zilli at the ‘Fiore de Cristallo’ launch.
