Product description

Contemporary architecture and modern product design demand increasing levels of a consistent, continuous, rectilinear use of form and the use of uniform materials complemented by generous space planning with open access points. This concept has been typical of bulthaup’s design for many years, both on a larger scale and on a detailed level.

The early use of laser welding technology long ago allowed bulthaup to create impressive and beautiful design solutions in which joints were eliminated and surfaces seamlessly fused together. Several examples illustrate this such as the water point, which is integrated seamlessly into the worktop thanks to this special technique.

bulthaup also applies this imperceptible seamless technique to laminates. The latest example is the use of laser technology for laminate fronts. The laminate edges are heated and then fused together to create an optically imperceptible seam. The advantage of this is that the bond is formed without the usual adhesive, which later on some times becomes visibly discolored. Fronts look like they were made from a single mold and they not only look good but are also easy to care for. Their seamless surfaces resemble that of fascinating lacquered fronts, but the qualities and the economic characteristics of laminate surfaces offer definite advantages. In Germany, bulthaup has patented this innovative process of imperceptible seamless laminate joints.

Concept

A kitchen must be as versatile as its owner for them to truly enjoy it. bulthaup b3 creates the greatest possible diversity of options and, with its numerous design combinations, provides the freedom for the wishes, ideas and needs of the owner to take flight.
bulthaup b3 offers almost unlimited design freedom. The reason for this is the multi-functional wall that gives the room rhythm and balance. The elements of this system can be installed wall-hanging, floor-standing or foot-supported, depending on how much storage space is needed. With bulthaup b3, the area between the wall and base units can be used to create even more storage space, with functional boxes accommodating kitchen utensils or spices.
bulthaup b3 boasts a range of different materials and functions. The kitchen space therefore becomes the living space, which can be fluidly continued into other areas as required, such as the living room.
