SPACE TOWER – storing provisions in style

Blum has rethought the larder unit. Practical pull-outs are concealed behind a front, providing clear visibility and easy access from all sides. SPACE TOWER can be individually adapted to the needs of the user in height, width and depth. Decide for yourself which Blum box or runner system you use to create your own design and colour concept.

SPACE STEP – a step and storage space in one – cleverly hidden in the plinth

Offer nifty functions concealed in the furniture plinth. SPACE STEP combines a step with additional storage space without restricting the design of the plinth – be it a recessed plinth, a recessed low plinth, or a flush plinth.

Sink cabinet – create functional storage space under the sink

Every inch of storage space beneath the sink counts. A U-shaped pull-out allows you to maximise the space available. Cleaning products and utensils all have their place and are accessible whenever you need them. The sink cabinet can be realised with LEGRABOX and TANDEMBOX, while SERVO-DRIVE or TIP-ON BLUMOTION can be used to create a handle-less solution. We recommend a cabinet width from 900 mm for this functional cabinet solution.

Don't let any space go to waste. SPACE TWIN allows you to seamlessly fill awkward gaps and create additional storage space – with complete stability and quality of motion. The narrow cabinet is suitable for a cabinet width of 150 mm or more. The space is ideal for storing chopping boards, spices or baking trays, and – thanks to a load bearing capacity of up to 20 kg – even oil and vinegar bottles pose no problem. If a full extension is used, furniture users can even reach the storage items right at the back.

SPACE TWIN can be realised with all box and runner systems and motion technologies from Blum.

The narrow cabinet stores spices, oil and vinegar right next to the hob
