Architects and kitchen designers are being asked to deliver showcase kitchens for their clients. Conceived as the focal point of family life and a hub for entertaining, contemporary kitchens attract plenty of attention and often have budgets to match.
The modernist mantra ‘less is more’ remains an ideal for many. However, as every designer knows, true minimalism is hard to achieve when the kitchen is a place for multiple appliances, cupboards, cooking utensils and food preparation areas. Beautiful materials and colours may create a stunning, monolithic look but handles and other hardware can derail this aesthetic.
SERVO-DRIVE is Blum’s solution. This electrical opening support system delivers one-touch opening and closing, with no visible hardware. And with no handles or negative detail, the material specified — be it metal, wood, laminate, natural or engineered stone — becomes the star.
SERVO-DRIVE can be fitted wherever there’s a need to open overhead cupboards or drawers. It can also provide opening for integrated appliances such as the fridge or freezer.
By facilitating handle-less design, SERVO-DRIVE reduces visual clutter while ensuring the kitchen remains a functional working space. Homeowners can achieve their goal of a showcase kitchen that is visually outstanding as well as supremely practical.
