Poggenpohl +ARTESIO® - building a visual bridge between kitchen and living space

Poggenpohl's award-winning +ARTESIO® won the coveted and rare "highest design quality" accolade at an international design competition recently.

Developed in co-operation with Hamburg-based star architect Hadi Teherani, the innovative +ARTESIO® kitchen concept goes far beyond the fitted kitchens typically found in the industry and provides an all-embracing solution in an architectural melting pot fusing furniture design, wall, floor and ceiling.

The result is an integrated space concept in which the aspects of building, architecture, home and kitchen all coalesce.

The +ARTESIO® design is defined by an innovative function arch. This produces an entirely new feeling of space that not only turns the kitchen into the centre of home life but also builds a visual bridge between cooking and living.

Fired Earth launches its first fitted kitchen collection, by Charles Smallbone

Fired Earth has announced the launch of its Moderne Kitchen Collection by Charles Smallbone. Moderne is Fired Earth’s first fitted kitchen collection and has been launched with a complete design and fitting service.
The collection is built around a simple and practical design, which draws on Charles Smallbone's expertise in kitchens and offers solutions that work well in both contemporary and traditional homes. Made from beech and oak veneer from sustainable sources, and with a range of painted finishes, the Moderne collection is a new concept in affordable luxury.

The range takes in elements you would expect to see in a bespoke kitchen and makes them more widely available.

Quality is key to the Moderne collection. Hand-crafted in France exclusively for Fired Earth by its sister company, Grange, close attention has been paid to clever detailing and accessorisation.

Charles Smallbone says: "A kitchen is about space, function and aesthetic and you have to get all three right. We wanted to create a system that would work in every home. The accent has been very much on angularity of design. This is evident in the cupboards, in the handles, the worktop detailing and in the cornicing".

The materials used in the Moderne collection are of the very highest quality. The work surfaces and splashbacks are available in a selection of granite and marble finishes. The collection is built to last and, importantly, not to date.

Charles Smallbone added: "The one thing that has been missing from the fitted kitchen market is beautiful products at a sensible price and that is exactly what we have produced.


"The AGA-Rangemaster Group has everything to make this work. It has an established retail channel, the design-led values of the Fired Earth brand and the artisan skills of the craftsmen at Grange. I felt that by working with the group, I had the unique opportunity to produce something special and something the market was crying out for. Individuality can be achieved with accessorisation and through the materials used. I really wanted to design something pared down, simple to understand and with a lightness of touch.

"The detail is all-important – mirrors in cupboards create a feeling of light and space, glass shelves add a luxurious dimension and there’s real beauty in the simplicity of the design".

The Moderne kitchen is available in a choice of twelve colours from Fired Earth’s paint collection, which can be mixed and matched to create unique schemes. Pieces from the range can be customised with a number of interior accessories and lighting options available.

ATAG's luxury dishwasher hits the heights

ATAG’s luxury line of dishwashers has seen the launch of a whole range of new models recently, featuring the very latest technology and incorporating user-friendly features, signalling the company’s strong commitment to a product sector that has yet to reach its considerable potential in the UK market.

ATAG’s National Sales Manager, Graham Gleave says: "Market penetration of dishwashers in Britain is still only around 30%, whereas 60% of German households and 80% of Swedish households are equipped with a dishwasher. When the housing market picks up in earnest, so integrated dishwashers and other kitchen appliances are expected to thrive and grow their share of the market".

New dishwasher owners wonder how they ever managed without one, but the low penetration rate of this sector means that the product itself must be a truly viable and versatile proposition that stands apart from its competitors.

ATAG’s fully integrated VA6511NT model quite literally hits the heights. The 600mm dishwasher can be sited either traditionally under a worktop or it can easily be installed at waist height in a tall housing unit by way of a smooth and fast assembly system. The high quality that consumers expect of the ATAG brand is therefore accompanied by the flexibility now demanded by discerning buyers. Discreet in situ but with a rock solid feel, the VA6511NT has a wealth of top class features to make life easier. Immediately noticeable is the quiet noise level and has triple 'A' energy ratings and a water consumption of just 14 litres. Its capacious cavity holds thirteen place settings and there are four programmes and four temperatures (Intensive, Normal, Eco and Fast).
