The fitting solutions you’ve been looking for…
Leading fittings manufacturer and systems designer Blum has identified two important areas in modern kitchen design and practical performance.
Firstly, the trend to carry the external visual design into the interior of the cabinets has been facilitated by Blum’s Intivo concept of inserts for drawer sides and pull-out sides and fronts.
These can be supplied by Blum or made by individual kitchen manufacturers to either match worktops or offset the external look of the kitchen. Intivo gives unlimited scope for design, inserts already made by designers include glass, marble, leather and stone. Intivo gives extraordinary scope for individualising design.
Secondly, the fast growing trend for waste separation in the kitchen. Blum supply two systems for waste containers to come out of the cabinets to the user – the first is floor mounted and the other a suspended system.
The most important new aspect of these is that they will open and move out to the user who may have both hands full. This is via Blum’s Servo-Drive automatic opening electric technology that opens in response to pressure from a knee or elbow for example. The unit is then closed in a controlled way using the Blum integrated Blumotion soft close mechanism.
