Perfecting motion for years to come

Buying a kitchen is a big investment and not very easy to change as the years go by. Personal needs determine how your kitchen should be planned, but you also need to take into consideration the fact that your needs will change in the future.


Blum has made sure to test our products against those future needs with the use of the AGE EXPLORER® suit.


AGE EXPLORER® is a registered trademark of the Meyer-Hentschel Institute.

We can't predict the future, but we can help you plan for it

The AGE EXPLORER® is a suit that allows the wearer to experience simulated movement limitations such as: pregnancy, carrying a newborn, the natural aging process, or either a lifelong or recent physical disability.

Aging in minutes

While wearing the AGE EXPLORER®, the wearer experiences physical limitations. It simulates typical physical limitations for movement, sight, touch and hearing that naturally occur as we age. These are unfortunately very important things to consider when planning a kitchen you plan to use for years to come.


Products that offer comfort of motion for everyone

The AGE EXPLORER® supports the development of products that bring the kitchen user long-term ergonomic benefits. Think about all of the changes the body goes through as we age, Blum strives to develop products that will make working in the kitchen an easy task for everyone – at any stage in life.


What to keep in mind when buying a kitchen

There are many things to consider when planning a kitchen.


Kitchen work made easier

The ergonomic tests show that it's difficult to get items out of a base cabinet with doors, especially for people with mobility impairment. Drawers in base cabinets are an ergonomic solution.

Everything at a glance

Lift systems in wall cabinets allow full access to the interior. They are easy to open and move up and out of the way of the user - reducing the risk of injury. AVENTOS lift systems let the cabinet door remain in any desired position and close silently and effortlessly thanks to BLUMOTION soft close.

Ergonomic - even in corner cabinets

Gone are the days of bending, kneeling, and digging into dark corners to find something in your cabinet. The SPACE CORNER cabinet, a corner cabinet with a bank of full extension drawers, brings the contents of the cabinet out to your fingertips.

The "Wow!" factor

For an even easier way to access your storage items, the electric opening support system, SERVO-DRIVE, lets cabinets open with just a light touch of the door or drawer front, and wall cabinets close with just the touch of a button.
