A kitchen lasts for about 20 years on an average, making it essential to think about user convenience in the long-term at the planning stage itself. By simulating practical situations – such as cooking, opening, and closing cabinets, tidying up – we gain important insights which can be incorporated in the development of new products. This ensures that kitchen buyers of all ages will enjoy using their new kitchens for many years to come.
Keeping innovation and practicality at its core, furniture fittings manufacturer Blum has introduced the AGE EXPLORER® suite in its newly launched 2500 sq. ft. showroom in Andheri East, Mumbai. The components of the suite simulate typical physical limitations that can occur in old age.
Blum makes everyday furniture easier to use; its innovative lift, cabinet door and drawer systems open with a smooth glide and close with a smooth soft action. The showroom presents hinges, pull-outs and lift systems inside a real kitchen to give visitors a “live” experience. The company also offers drilling, insertion machines and assembly devices at its in-house training center.
To cater to the needs of the growing Indian market, the brand has introduced some of their award-winning products like AVENTOS HK top, SPACE STEP, Onyx Black Hinges, and more. The products have gained massive global recognition over the years with awards like Germany’s Red Dot Design Award and iF Gold Award, amongst others, for their minimalist design and practicality. Each product is crafted keeping in mind simplicity and dynamic space utilization. For example, AVENTOS HK top is an innovative lift mechanism that brings premium quality motion to wall cabinets with ease, blending discreetly into tall units and wall cabinets. SPACE STEP, offers extra storage space in plinths and allows easy access to top cabinets.
