Kitchen and room planning concepts of timeless elegance
Classic CLASSIC, IN A NEW COMPOSITION G O W I T H T H E T I M E S To live classically, one has to be a traditionalist. Whether clothing, car, music, or furniture, classic fans around the world are united by their enthusiasm for craftsmanship and authenticity, for true values and timeless elegance. And originality is sought after just as much as original pieces. Those who move in different cultural circles find that classic is in the process of developing into a new and versatile style of life – and most particularly in interior design. It may be characterized by worldly elegance or minimalism, opulence or restraint. It may be conscious of tradition, or it may transcend all boundaries. No matter what, it is more individual than ever before – and is therefore experiencing an impressive renaissance. PA G E _ 5

Classic T H E B E S T I NG R E D I E N T S FO R P L A N N I NG A N D D E S IG N COMPOSE YOUR KITCHEN A LA CARTE Between the individualized options provided by SieMatic design concepts and the expertise of your SieMatic specialist, you can find the perfect combinations in the SieMatic CLASSIC collection to suit your taste: matt or glossy surfaces, light or dark materials, smooth or contoured door fronts, and with or without handles. Stark contrasts, door fronts with facetted frames, and symmetrical furniture arrangements are classic interior design themes that SieMatic has given a completely new, modern spin, with the bold shapes of cabinets in a matt black tone from the SieMatic Individual ColorSystem as well as the stainless steel countertop and side panels in a 1 cm look elegantly enveloping the island. The small tea and coffee station remains out of sight when not in use. The practical cabinets are completely embedded into the wall and equipped with double pocket doors. Flanked on both sides are tall cabinets whose functions – including spacious refrigerators and freezers – are just as discretely hidden behind smooth front panels. PA G E _ 9
Classic COMFORT AND ELEGANCE A FURNITURE GEM IN THE KITCHEN One signature piece in the SieMatic CLASSIC collection is the highly unique, modern interpretation of the classic “Chinese wedding cabinet.” With the exquisite “matt black oak” veneer are gleaming accents of handles, knobs, and hardware in “polished nickel.” This expressive freestanding piece lends an elegant air and ease to any kitchen. Its appeal is not only aesthetic, but functional: Behind its decorative exterior, it can conceal a spacious china cabinet, pantry storage or a convenient refrigerator-freezer combination. PA G E _ 10

Classic D O I N G M O R E W I T H L E S S IT IS NOT THE SIZE THAT COUNTS, BUT THE IDEA The SieMatic CLASSIC collection offers options that go far beyond the usual in kitchen design with truly unlimited creative freedom – no matter your space or budget. This example illustrates how sophisticated ideas and SieMatic design elements can be used to create a high-quality, impressive and individual space with just a few pieces: a warm “graphite grey” from the SieMatic ColorSystem was chosen for a distinctive color contrast with the island’s rounded-edge countertop in noble “bianca carrara” marble. Ceramic in “pulpis” gives the backsplash an elegant air. Metallic details in “gold bronze” like the wall rack, handles, fine edging on the exhaust hood, and the countertop frame create attractive accents and give the kitchen a brilliant shine. PA G E _ 15
Classic MORE IDEAS PER M² EXPAND YOUR CREATIVE OPTIONS Classic, timelessly elegant style and symmetric arrangements characterize this room concept, which also features mindful repetition of color and materials. The stove area forms a focal point with its silky matt lacquered base cabinets in “graphite grey” and exhaust hood in “lotus white.” Continuous metal edging in “gold bronze” subtly accentuates handles, fittings, and countertop edge. The subdued shine of these lines builds a delicate contrast to the size of the range and the island opposite. Cleverly integrated into a simulated doorway is a refrigerator-freezer combination. Elegantly concealed with door trim and with door fronts in “graphite grey,” the element blends perfectly with the surrounding architecture. PA G E _ 16
Classic B R I L L I A N T D E S I G N METALLIC HUES AS AN ACCENT Stainless steel countertops are not the only option available: SieMatic offers a wide selection of smaller, delicate elements whose attractive metallic hues lend a special luster to classic kitchens.

Classic When the kitchen is the focal point, the cooking area should be an attractive eye catcher: The base cabinet units, which are arranged symmetrically to the right and left of the impressive range cooker, are characteristic design elements of the SieMatic CLASSIC collection. The rich “bianco carrara” marble, used for the sliding doors in the niche and the 8 cm countertop, radiates a particular elegance. PA G E _ 54
Classic Typical features include the SieMatic glass wall cabinets, which give the preparation area the charm of a traditional buffet.

A clear contrast is provided by the vivid materials and colors of the opulent island and the classically designed, symmetrically arranged cooking area, which thus become the clear focus. The massive stainless steel stove and polished stainless steel hood create attractive, gleaming highlights. Tall cabinet units integrated in the wall create an elegant transition, with glass doors, frames in “polished nickel,” glass shelving, and an interior in rich smoked oak veneer that picks up on the warm, dark wood of the island.

Classic S U S TA I N A B I L I T Y PREFERRING THE BEST, INCLUDING FOR THE EN VIRONMENT Most of our products are made from a renewable, recyclable material: wood. We prefer to source it from regional suppliers, minimizing transport and energy consumption. SieMatic is FSC™ certified, and we are able to sustainably supply parts of our assortment according to the strict requirements of the Forest Stewardship Council™. State-of-the-art cutting systems ensure optimal utilization of materials at minimal waste. The remaining waste wood is recycled 100% or is transformed into energy in our own heating plants.

True to our corporate motto, “Preferring the best,” SieMatic’s environmental efforts go far beyond the standard for the industry. Our goal, through a growing number of effective measures, is to make consistent and exemplary use of the latest ecological findings in every area of the company and to get confirmation of these measures and their results from a neutral party. Naturally, the testers in this area are also tested well, in order to ensure that the environmental certificates won by the company SieMatic and its products are serious, transparent, and meaningful.

Classic T H E S I E M AT I C C O L O R S Y S T E M THE ART OF SETTING THE RIGHT TONE Color is one of the most important design elements in interior design, because it spontaneously creates moods and feelings. The choice of colors determines whether a room is perceived as inviting, elegant, open, cool, or cozy. Achieving a nuanced combination of the different materials and door panels used in a kitchen and creating the desired harmony require not only a highly sensitive use of colors but also a well conceived concept. That is why the SieMatic ColorSystem was developed. Available in a range of attractive matt and glossy colors, which make it possible to combine the SieMatic furniture elements across all collections. Furthermore, the 1,950 individually selectable matt and glossy hues of the SieMatic Individual ColorSystem are also available in SQ lacquer.

However, countertops of massive stone are usually offered by their manufacturers only in a few designs. In contrast, SieMatic StoneDesign offers numerous variants to expand planning latitude. Because these countertops consist of a light support material, topped by a 1-cm-thick slab of granite, marble, slate, limestone, volcanic stone, or composite stone. This way, countertops can be made in thicknesses, lengths, and areas that are free of joints, which otherwise would be hardly supportable – thus opening up many design alternatives. SieMatic countertops can be crafted not only from many different types of stone in thicknesses from 6.5 to 140 mm, but also with a wide variety of edge designs including embossed, elliptical or mitered, as well as the popular 1 cm look, or with the new, especially fine 6.5 mm edge. And of course, beyond that, SieMatic Kitchen Interior Design also offers a rich selection of variants in wood, stainless steel, ceramic, and high-quality laminate, which can also be combined well with SieMatic StoneDesign.
