Haus Beck 2013

An intrepid team of 3 are just back from our annual visit to Germany for the Haus Beck, an event which showcases all of the new designs and concepts which are being released by our German partner, Bauformat and its' sister company, Burger for the incoming year. 

Handless kitchens have featured strongly from both manufacturers with Burger launching their first handless option based on the experience of Bauformats' existing portfolio of products in this style, with the competitive price point we have come to expect from Burger.

The kitchen designs themselves were very much linear in style with the emphasis on width. Our maximum size now stands at 2m for a continuous panel , concealing multiple individual cabinets depending on design and client preference. In respect of cabinet fronts,  although high gloss still features strongly, doors in a matt finish were selected for many of the key displays with stunning results. 

Extra Wide Panelling - in this display, spanning 1.8m across the length of the appliance housing

Our stand out item from the show was a new range of matt doors from Bauformat which now forms the Calais range in earth colours with a layered black and Steel effect edge. Placed as a price group 2 door, which positions it as one of Bauformats' most cost effective doors, we expect this to be one of our strongest products for the new year. More to follow...
