Intelligent Kitchens

The fast kitchen with added convenience

When planning and buying a new kitchen, pay attention to these three aspects in particular: short distances, ergonomics and cleverly organised cabinet interiors

Short distances

The "Intelligent Kitchens" guide organises a kitchen into five activity areas. Planning a kitchen on the basis of this concept provides a host of benefits: going about your everyday work in the kitchen, you benefit from short distances and efficient, ergonomic work flows.

Working the healthy, ergonomic way

"Intelligent Kitchens" helps you to organise your kitchen in a way that makes ergonomic sense. That takes the burden off you and is good for your health. Important aspects include a personally tailored worktop height, clever use of storage spaces, practical interior organisation for wall and base units.

Everything in its place

A well organised kitchen is more of a pleasure and less stressful to work in. Keep the important things where they're needed. Use intelligent organisational solutions for drawers and extensions. This way, you can store your provisions and utensils efficiently and conveniently.

Practical and whisper quiet.

You'll love it when all of the drawers, hinges and sliding doors close gently and quietly in your kitchen. Even the doors on refrigerator crisper compartments and the dishwasher baskets come with Silent System for whisper quiet closing.

Ergonomic at last.

Working in the kitchen used to involve quite a lot of gymnastics: you had to bend, stretch, kneel ... Stressful and nerve racking! And today a kitchen can be as cool and convenient as this: full extension pot-and-pan drawers, clearly arranged interior organisation, ergonomic worktop heights.

    Full extension drawers in base units represent excellent ergonomics. It´s much easier to find and fetch out an item from a drawer like this than from a cupboard with conventional doors. Bending over, or even crawling into a cupboard, to find what you´re looking for is a thing of the past.

  • It´s worth investing in full extension drawers, rather than part extension drawers, for the extra convenience of finding things quickly.

  • If you do have to lift a heavy item from below hip height, keep your back straight and let your legs do the work!
