15/12/2020 - What a vision: The award-winning kitchen FOLD
all in black. The
FOLD Luxury Black
is a spectacular piece of kitchen art made of black steel.
The contours are reminiscent of the Asian art of paper folding, hence the name. Despite its powerful presence, the sculptural object appears to float. The kitchen is manufactured using a computer-based process and finished by hand to prepare a precise fit. Behind the elegant kitchen front hides generous storage space and many practical functions.
THE ARCHAIC POWER OF METAL TAMED
The flashiest feature of FOLD is the origami look in tombac, a special brass alloy. Designer Martin Steininger has conquered but not broken the archaic power of metal. „Character can be formed, but never bent. The kitchen should look unique and still be functional.
“ This was preceded by numerous experiments; metals such as brass and aluminium were cut, edged, folded and welded. Months passed until all obstacles were overcome and the right techniques were found. In the end, FOLD is a spectacular kitchen highlight with a smart touch: The surfaces shine in a noble finishing, are hygienic and easy to clean. And the intuitive M.POD
control panel makes it easy to control all kitchen functions.
FOLD FOR PURISTS
The production of FOLD as well as all other Steininger design kitchens is made to measure. A special computer-based production technique shapes the metal materials with millimetre precision. The precisely prepared alloys are finished by hand. This is how distinctive, unique pieces are created that will outlast trends. This Bespoke concept implemented by the Austrians hits the nerve of their international clientele: New materials, purism, clear forms, quality and durability are highly valued by architects, interior designers and international design lovers.
FOLD as Luxury Black Edition: With the usual fold, but in black steel. „Black is a clear statement, but nevertheless neutral, elegant and timeless. We also wanted to see, how the kitchen appears with other materials. That‘s why we are planning further FOLD models in brass, copper, zinc and nickel silver,“ says Martin Steininger.
