The new handle-free SieMatic
Löhne, September 15, 2018 | When it was first presented in 1960, it revolutionized kitchen design and function: the handle-free SieMatic. In 1988, it was once again celebrated as an avant-garde vanguard. Today, the handle-free kitchen has become the design standard. Have all the aesthetic and technical challenges for this design already been mastered? Can such an iconic design be reinvented? The answer comes from the inventors themselves – with the "New Handle-Free SieMatic."
The tasks they had set themselves were: How can the front appear even more streamlined and delicate? How can the grip become even more comfortable, with a unique design? The result is a concept that reinforces the company‘s decades-long leading position in international kitchen design. The central design detail is the completely redeveloped SieMatic recessed grip channel: decisive simplicity on the outside, and a complex interplay of technical ingenuity, craftsmanship and superior materials on the inside. This innovation was only made possible by the perfect angle, the ideal feel and an individually controllable lighting system - the LED light strip integrated into the shadow gap. This innovative recessed grip is the basis of an intelligent overall concept that combines three design elements: Transparency, light and three-dimensionality. The result is a design that will once again be formative not only for the SieMatic PURE style collection, but for an entire generation of kitchens.
The "New Handle-Free SieMatic" will be presented to an international trade audience at SieMatic Forum 2018 from September 15 to 20 at the "August-Wilhelm Siekmann-Forum" in Löhne, East Westphalia. It will be available in stores starting in 2019, the year in which SieMatic celebrates its 90th anniversary.
