Posted in Accessories, Appliance Trends, Cooktops, Kitchen Appliances, Kitchen Islands by Maria on December 20, 2007


A product of extensive research, the top-of-the-range ‘Case System 2.3’, teams the ever growing demand for ultra sophisticated design with intelligent and innovative technical solutions.
To maintain an image of absolute minimalism the handle has been integrated into the doors where it remains invisible. The stainless steel worktop rests on a light, aluminum frame creating a void between base and top. Other elegant technical solutions such as the ‘Blu-motion’ seal-mechanism that allows the doors of the units to recede softly and silently close are standard.
This truly pioneering design introduces the suspended base module, kept in suspension by a built-in L-shaped steel joint. Supported on one side by a low open faced module and fixed to the floor behind a regular base unit on the other the units appear to be weightless. Whilst fulfilling all practical necessities this modular entity contradicts all traditional ideas of a kitchen. Boffi.
