The Fiore di Cristallo, World’s First Million Pound Kitchen Unveiled in London

A UK based Italian interior designer and master craftsman has unveiled the world’s most expensive kitchen ever created, with a price tag of a million pounds. The ‘Fiore di Cristallo’ kitchen, which has been designed by Claudio Celiberti was unveiled at One Mayfair in London at a prestigious event co-hosted by celebrity chef, Aldo Zilli.

Taking more than twelve months to create, the unique kitchen aims to push the boundaries of what is possible in design thanks to Claudio’s no compromise approach to creating the perfect masterpiece using striking design qualities, exquisite natural materials and fine craftsmanship.

Handcrafted in Italy the opulent kitchen features only the best quality materials including the world famous ‘Crystal of Murano’ (cristallo di Murano). Made using ancient techniques originating from the island of Murano, the process for making this crystal is a complex and closely guarded secret. The result is crystal that is of the highest quality, free of air bubbles, smudges and impurities.

The bespoke kitchen includes a host of ultra-luxurious finishes including cabinets lined with solid copper, a mineral acknowledged for its hygienic qualities as it inactivates harmful microbes. Each of the 27 cabinets, which cost over £400,000 to design and hand craft, also have a 9mm crystal door and handle, carefully made to an intricate and bespoke template. In addition the kitchen features a crystal island worth £36,850, a £6,850 stone worktop, a crystal basin costing £2,680 and Philip Starck taps, chrome clad in crystal and valued at £1,600.

The centre piece of the kitchen is a modern yet elegant Swarovski Crystal and cristallo di Murano chandelier designed by Claudio Celiberti. This unique and attention grabbing lighting, which cost £26,400 to hand craft, instantly draws attention to the kitchen, bouncing light off the reflective crystal surfaces.

The one million pound price tag also includes over £24,000 worth of handcrafted appliances from Gaggenau. The specialist German company has a history that goes back more than 300 years, having revolutionised the domestic kitchen over and over again with internationally acclaimed products. Award winning products featured in the kitchen include a £5,000 fridge, a wine climate cabinet worth £2,762 pounds and a £1,714 espresso / coffee machine.
