Liberta Modular System | Richelieu Richelieu, kitchens Richelieu, kitchens

Metropolitan Collection | Caesarstone Caesarstone, kitchens Caesarstone, kitchens

The new Collection brings factory aesthetics into the realm of residential design. The five surfaces are rough, tough, and unpolished, and when installed in a kitchen bring a raw patina with an enviable industrial edge. Inspired by oxidized steel, poured plaster, and raw concrete, each slab is unique, full of character and depth. www.caesarstone.com  

KeepHeat | Hoover KeepHeat, Hoover, kitchens

The KeepHeat oven uses a patented Exeter Technology to cook and keep food warm all in one appliance; allowing users to prepare meals well in advance and keep them at a desired temperature without the risk of overcooking or drying out. Conceived in collaboration with researchers from the University of Palma, the appliance mimics techniques used in professional kitchens, dropping to as low as 62 degrees Celsius when needed. www.hoover.co.uk  

Lullaby | Elica Elica, Lullaby, kitchensElica, Lullaby, kitchens

Elica is inspiring homeowners to ditch standard pot lights in favour of reimagined ceiling hoods instead. The Lullaby is a long shelf that floats above countertops, islands, and workstations, offering lighting, air extraction/filtration, and odour control while hiding all units from sight. The large panel is equipped with LEDs that can be adjusted for intensity and tone, while the hood is available in aged oak or white lacquered wood finishes. www.elica.com  

 Bold Table | LAGO Bold Table, LAGO, kitchens

The Bold Table by LAGO challenges gravity through a single off-centre support that bears the weight of its thin tabletop. Comfortable, stable, and versatile, the table is defined by its black “shadow” base that stabilizes the product itself. The table is available in oak wood and XGlass, with a base that can be customized in any of LAGO’s 32 signature colours. www.lago.it

Slimline Dishwasher | Miele Slimline Dishwasher, Miele, kitchens

Considering many people live in small households and apartments with minimal kitchen space, it’s surprising that compact dishwashers aren’t more common. Enter Miele’s Slimline Dishwasher: a 45cm wide appliance that’s small but effective, featuring a cutlery drawer and room for nine place settings. Stamped with an A++ energy efficiency rating, the dishwasher even contains a neat auto-open drying feature, allowing hot air to escape at the end of a cycle without risking moisture damage to nearby countertops, cupboards, and floors. www.miele.ca   

Tiomos Hinge | GRASS Tiomos Hinge, Grass, kitchens

Deliberately blending in, GRASS’ Tiomos Hinge is made for minimalist kitchens that pride themselves on cleanliness and simplicity. The hinge is entirely hidden from sight and recessed into the cabinet to allow the furniture to speak for itself.

Available in matte or high gloss finishes, the new designs offer a fresh alternative to the muted marbles that we so often see in the modern marketplace.
