Innovative fittings for extremely large fronts
Concept study to investigate the potential of Blum’s solution
Every household needs worktops and shelves but they shouldn’t dominate the look of living areas. There are different creative approaches on how these areas can be hidden behind large fronts. Austrian fittings specialist, Blum, has carried out a concept study to find out what experts think of its new idea at INTERZUM 2017.
Due to ongoing urbanisation, living space is becoming smaller and more and more expensive. It is often necessary to use a single room for several purposes. Often multiple function areas within apartments, such as office areas, storage areas and even entire kitchens are merged into one area. For this reason, end users may like to hide elements behind large front applications. This means that the same fine finishes can be used throughout the living area, producing a harmonious and tidy, sleek and minimalist look. Of course, these large fronts need to open and close with utmost ease. Blum has the solution – as demonstrated with the concept study at INTERZUM 2017.
How does it work?
Blum’s concept study consists of a large bi-fold door that can be uniquely hidden away. At a single touch, the bi-fold front folds and neatly glides into a side pocket. Thanks to Blum’s solution, large spaces can be beautifully concealed and opened again whenever needed. Users have complete and unhindered access to cabinet interiors. To close, simply touch the front. The new fitting has been specifically designed to give large fronts a secure hold. What’s special about the solution is that it works without handles. So, Blum’s new idea offers a new freedom of design combined with top quality motion.
