Heavy metal – Poggenpohl sets a new theme
Gold-plated or shiny silver kitchen fronts. With the +VENOVO showpieces, Poggenpohl is once again showing how excellent design, the latest technology and technical perfection consolidate into unique quality.
Herford, 14 September 2019.
If gold, silver, outstanding design and expertise all merge into one, you get a kitchen which is too good to be reduced to pure usage. Poggenpohl is showcasing its first showpieces on this topic as an exclusive at Küchenmeile A30.
In a special process, slate slabs are metallized with 24-carat gold or another pure precious metal. They are then combined with highly-transparent, hardened glass. The effect is a symbiosis of precious metal, stone and glass which accentuates the slate’s topography in a unique way. With gold, the composite shines brilliantly, warmly and vividly. With silver, it has a subtle and cool gleam.
Poggenpohl is the first manufacturer to show off this fascinating surface material in kitchen design. The iconic +VENOVO design concept can now be seen in the designs “Stars”, which is in gold, and “Moon”, which is silver-coloured. Both of these designs could be particularly relevant for the Asian markets. In India, for example, gold signifies purity, wealth and safety.
