100% Design – Best in Show
Every September, the UK’s largest design trade event comes to London with the very latest innovations in interiors, eco design and build, office, bathrooms and, of course, kitchens. This year there was plenty to inspire with worktops, appliances and cabinetry to give your kitchen wow factor and feel appeal…
Caesarstone’s new Supernatural range:
For a quartz worktop that has the look and feel of marble, check out the new Piatra Grey colourway from the Supernatural collection, which was shown for the very first time in the UK. It has all the tactility and subtlety of marble but, unlike marble, is entirely non-porous.
It’s also scratch and stain resistant and doesn’t need polishing or sealing. Made from 93% natural materials and guaranteed for 15 years, it comes in 20mm and 30mm thicknesses and additional colours – Dreamy Marfil, Emperadoro, Frosty Carrina and London Grey.
Gaggenau launched latest 400 oven series:
Luxury appliance brand Gaggenau showcased the A-rated 76-litre BO470110 handless oven in glass and stainless steel. Electronic temperatures can be set from 30˚C to 300˚C with the option to save up to 50 personalised programmes, allowing you to simply record and play your favourites.
Added features include Pyrolytic self-cleaning, 17 heating methods with core temperature probe, rotisserie spit, baking stone function and a thermally insulated quadruple glazed door to keep heat in.
Cosentino’s new brand Dekton:
Dekton is a new brand by Cosentino, which was launched at 100% Design, and provides the perfect architectural solution for interiors and exteriors. The ultra-compact surface is a mix of inorganic raw materials that are used to manufacture glass, porcelain and quartz surfaces.
It’s ideal for designers, architects, house builders and developers, as it can be used indoors and out thanks to its resistance to UV rays and large formats, making it quick and easy to install.
Mette’s Farm Kitchen:
British design studio Mette transformed the central 252sq m area of the Kitchen & Bathroom hall into a kitchen/hospitality environment called Farm Kitchen. A conceptual installation that fused the science of micro-agriculture with kitchen and interior design, the Farm Kitchen explored its application into a design-led field, its day-to-day potential in urban interiors and diverse planting for cooking and well-being.
There was a vertical vegetable patch, an infusion wall where felt pockets were filled with medicinal herbs, a self-sustaining window sill planter box and LED lamps for growing vegetables, herbs and flowers.
