Hideaway kitchen with island
The secret of the “K” collection by Norbert Wangen is the ability to understand how to aesthetically tie in both flexibility and functionality in the ‘kitchen cube’.
An on-going conceptual development, the series continues to address these challenges. As the first ever K2 pioneered the idea of a monoblock featuring a sliding top with a dual function: concealing the working area when the not in use and also serving as a table top. Today, three new models are presented. The K5 kitchen offers larger dimensions, has a visible hob and adopts the natural solid elm wood for its sliding top in contrast with the stainless steel, covering both washing and working areas. K6 reinvents movement: its worktop slides alongside the depth and not the kitchen length. Maintaining the features of the original design, the K2. 2 offers deeper dimensions.
Norbert Wangen’s “kitchen cube” design revolutionises the concept of the compact kitchen. Because of their unique structures available in three different sizes, the K5, K6 and K2. 2 kitchens enhance the dining experience, from creation to completion, in one social space; an elegant and rational response to the requirements of open plan, multi-purpose living spaces.
The three kitchens conform to the same design, yet offering different dimensions with customised built-in elements. They are characterised by a complete block with a sliding stainless steel or wood top; when opened laterally or along the backside, it reveals an elegant table to be used either as a snack bar or dining area. New sophisticated surfaces are introduced, ideal for food preparation and cooking, together with a totally concealable washing area.
The block contains a hob and individually welded sinks with stainless steel fitting. The rectangular structure encloses an oven (or ovens), refrigerator, dishwasher, cupboard and drawer space.
The K2. 2 kitchen follows the forms of the original K2, with a wider depth that guarantees more workspace and greater usability for the different operational functions. New custom-made accessories for the washing area allow a wider array of operational possibilities.
