Product description

Monoblock laminate
The bulthaup monoblock is a fascinating add-on to the bulthaup b3 design system. Each of these seamlessly finished elements in stainless steel or laminate is designed and produced individually in accordance with our customers’ wishes. The dimensions and material can be selected to suit and functions such as water points and cooktops can be integrated as required. The precision-finished stainless steel or laminate structure conceals the selected base cabinets into a single unit.

The laminate version of the bulthaup b3 monoblock is custom-made in accordance with the customer’s wishes and with the same care and precision as the stainless steel version. The homogenously solid-core, thick-layer laminate ensures a seamless continuation of the worktops, side panels and back panel. This version also looks like it has been made from a single mold, creating a fascinating focal point — be it in the center of the room or in front of a wall. Of course, functions such as cooktops and water points can also be integrated to ensure a seamless appearance.
The laborious individual creation of the bulthaup b3 monoblock is possible because, at bulthaup, craftsmanship skill and state-of-the-art industrial manufacturing are perfectly combined.

Product family


The universal bulthaup b3 design system encapsulates “state of the art” like no other. This system offers an incredibly wide range of versatile design solutions for perfect kitchens as well as surprising solutions for functional and aesthetic changes to spaces that go beyond the kitchen work area.

Combining functionality and ergonomics in a minimalist, light-looking form that not only creates precise functionality but also has a sensual, sculptured character is the inspiration and the result of engineer-driven thinking and passionate design. This is why, before the new kitchen generation was planned, designed and built, we went back and looked scientifically at workflows and movements in the kitchen. Previously, it was difficult to reach certain areas of the kitchen; you either had to bend down low or stretch up high. With the bulthaup b3 design system these hard-to-reach zones, i.e. those at the very top and bottom, were done away with. Instead, this system makes maximum use of the space between the wall and base units.

The bulthaup b3 design system offers limitless design freedom. Instead of a conventional floor-plan-based kitchen plan, the wall is activated and vitalized. The kitchen space becomes a living space that can be extended seamlessly into other areas of the home at will. The elements of this system can be installed wall-hung, floorstanding or foot-supported, depending on how much storage space is needed. All three types of installation create the impression of a “floating” kitchen. bulthaup b3 is the design system that makes working and living in the kitchen easier and gives the entire kitchen a stylish, lightweight and floating appearance.
