The right fittings for current furniture trends

Blum presents solutions for modern design at interzum

Blum aims to achieve furniture with the 'wow' effect through its fittings for lift systems, doors and pull-outs. At interzum 2021, not only will customers see which design trends are currently shaping the furniture industry, they will also see the fittings manufacturer’s response in their product range.


Pick up design trends with your own furniture creations – thanks to innovative fittings from Blum. At interzum 2021, the Austrian fittings manufacturer is highlighting four selling points that are currently shaping furniture design. Blum uses furniture transformed with fittings from the existing and soon to be extended range to present all four of these trends.

Dark surfaces
Dark materials are increasingly determining the outward appearance of furniture. Now Blum is taking this trend inside as well, with dark fittings. Entire living areas with a harmonious colour concept can be delivered across all applications. The BLUM range for AVENTOS lift systems includes dark cover caps in dark grey. There is an extensive product line of CLIP top BLUMOTION hinges in onyx black, suitable for doors. And LEGRABOX pull-outs in carbon black matt bring a dark elegance to the base cabinet.

Metallics – highlights with a metal look
Elegant accents can be set with metallic elements. Some excitingly staged applications are on display on the Blum trade show stand: hinges in onyx black, branding elements in metallic gold, silver and copper, and LEGRABOX drawer sides in stainless steel with an anti-fingerprint finish and with metallic print colours.

Minimalism – simple beauty
Clear, straight lines, a design that is reduced to the basics, and large surfaces are another important design element presented by Blum in exhibition furniture at interzum. The new, concealed lift system AVENTOS HKi is hidden in the cabinet side. Handle-less fronts that owe their implementation to SERVO-DRIVE, TIP-ON BLUMOTION and TIP-ON motion technologies, ensure a minimalist furniture design. The EXPANDO T fixing system allows thin fronts made from exceptional materials to be used.

Dark Surfaces: Blum provides matching dark fittings and cover caps for lift systems, doors and pull-outs

Individuality: It is very on-trend to use furniture to express your own style. Design is no longer just on the surface; it has also moved inside the furniture, here with the LEGRABOX special edition in noble rust

Metallics: Surfaces with a metallic look create special effects, such as LEGRABOX individual, with large, golden, printed drawer sides

Minimalism: Discrete fittings enable minimalist design. AVENTOS HKi, the lift system that vanishes in the cabinet side, takes this to the max.
