Chef Michael Voltaggio Joins Brizo Kitchen & Bath Company As Culinary Brand Ambassador

To Voltaggio, creating in the kitchen starts with food and permeates into the design of spaces where meals are crafted, plated and served. Similarly, the Brizo brand is grounded in Living Fashion, a brand philosophy and driving force underscoring fashion as a lifestyle that informs what we eat, the places we travel and the way we design our spaces.

“Chef Voltaggio is known for his distinctive culinary style and expertise. Every dish he creates unfolds in a perfectly complex way, appealing to all of the senses,” said Laura Brooks, senior brand manager for Brizo. “In the same respect, everything we do as a brand is grounded in inspiring unique spaces with beautiful design and precise execution. As a fan of Brizo products with a strong passion for the creative process, we know Chef Voltaggio embodies our brand mission and are excited to work with him as an authentic, engaging brand ambassador.”

In his work with the Brizo brand, Voltaggio will marry his culinary philosophy of perpetual innovation and his passion for beautiful design with the brands’ statement-making, innovative faucet collections. Translating his commercial kitchen efficiency and fashionable aesthetic to aspirational home kitchens, Chef Voltaggio will be featured in Brizo product advertising materials and serve as host at exclusive brand engagements showcasing the high-quality design and innovative functionality of Brizo faucets.

“As a chef and restaurant owner, balancing functionality in execution with culinary style and design on the plate is paramount,” said Chef Michael Voltaggio. “Working with the Brizo team is exciting for me, personally and professionally, because Brizo is a brand that understands innovation does not come at the cost of sacrificing style. The right faucet streamlines culinary tasks as the one tool used throughout the entire cooking process and as the center of my kitchen, so it has to look good and work hard.”

The first creative installment featuring Voltaggio coincides with the launch of the Litze™ (pronounced LEETS-zuh) Kitchen Collection by Brizo® which is defined by purposeful details and craftsmanship. Melding a clean, contemporary sensibility with an artisanal touch, the Litze Collection is a true testament to shape and form.

“The Litze Kitchen Collection is focused on stripping a faucet down to its core shape and adding beautiful details to aid in functionality,” said Jordan Bahler, lead Brizo industrial designer. “Removing pure ornamentation plays a pivotal part in defining the collection’s personality, and details like the knurling on the wand and handle are ‘touch points,’ subtly communicating they weren’t added to be decorative, but rather to provide grip to these areas.”

The full kitchen collection features a simplistically beautiful bent tube spout rendered in three distinct shapes to complement a variety of design aesthetics. Each design detail, especially the textured knurling, is purposeful to provide practical culinary benefits while celebrating beautiful craftsmanship. Its versatility is evident in the three distinct spout options — Arc, Square or Angled — that can be paired with either the Knurled Lever or Industrial Lever handle, offering a range of configurations that are equally at home in modern, minimal environments or more industrially inspired spaces.

This is the first Brizo collection to offer the distinctive Matte Black / Brilliance® Luxe Goldsplit finish and the first kitchen suite available in the Brilliance® Luxe Gold finish. The Litze Kitchen Collection by Brizo® is now available.
