Over the past year, kitchens have become more important spaces in our homes than ever before. They are social spaces where we can interact with our families and work together towards the perfection of lovely, lovely cakes, bakes and meals. This is even more so the case in modern homes where the kitchen is often part of a larger living space, combined with a dining or sitting room. So, as we slowly tiptoe towards a more open world, why not give your kitchen as much care and attention as an origami master?
Steininger is an Austrian kitchens and interiors designer whose designs add a minimalist, pure aesthetic to any room. Their latest model, FOLD, is an award-winning example of modern design and functionality. Inspired by the art of folding paper, the shapes are bold and geometric, presented in a cool brass-like alloy called tombac.
All Steininger kitchens are made to measure, meaning they can be made to fit even the quirkiest of spaces, which is a necessity given that FOLD is as much a work of art as a functional piece of equipment. All the drawers and compartments are hidden through smooth technical refinements that allow the shapes to maintain their visual impact. And it’s a lot of impact.
It’s not all about design though, as the tombac metal surface is highly durable and temperature resistant too – it’s easy to clean, hygienic and odourless making it ideal for use in the kitchen. So, whether you keep your kitchen spotless to begin with or if the kids manage to make an almighty mess, it’s simple to return your Steininger kitchen back to its showroom shine.
FOLD has been nominated for and won several design awards, including at the German Design Awards 2020, Iconic Awards 2020 and Red Dot Award 2019. Considering the excellent utility and service provided and the subtle yet impactful design, it’s small wonder that it’s critically acclaimed.
Within the FOLD collection is also the M-Pod Table, a table that integrates a 32-inch touchpad with specially hardened safety glass that can operate as a smart home control panel, cookbook or turntable, among other functions. Who wouldn’t want to spin some fat tunes while you trim the fat on your signature steak dish?
As all their kitchens are created bespoke and to measure, price is upon request and you can inquire at Steininger Designers.
