+INTEGRATION® – the ultimate / superior kitchen idea
Three prizes in just a few short months
Never before has a Poggenpohl kitchen been as unmistakable as +INTEGRATION®: It represents uncompromising aesthetics and a totally new understanding of the kitchen. Innovative front design, optimised architecture, an enhanced living function and intelligent integration make the perfectly designed, fully functional kitchen an area for living and entertaining, a concert hall, cinema, library or home office. +INTEGRATION® was presented at the Eurocucina in Milan in the spring of 2004, and at the M.O.W. in Germany in September 2004.
New design features in the kitchen front, unusual proportions and exquisite materials define contemporary luxury with complete individuality. Homogeneously coloured all the way through, solid fronts made from Parapan® in brilliant black, brilliant grey or brilliant white provide an impressive contrast against the expressive fine wood veneers of Swiss peartree, walnut and zebrano-structure. Paired with aluminium and glass, the kitchen takes on a new look that lives from harmony and contrast.
Tall units and wall cabinets that appear to vanish into the wall typify the uncompromising aesthetics of +INTEGRATION®. Floor-to-ceiling facing walls as the link between load-bearing architecture and room design permit aesthetically perfected kitchen planning that is detached from the given building structures. Freely positionable facing walls create space for extended work depths in recess zones as well as for concealing and maintaining all domestic service installations.
+INTEGRATION® transforms what was a monofunctional, single-purpose room into the communications centre of the home. Solitaire furniture that aesthetically shows off multimedia elements exemplifies this extended living function. Elegant highboards, each integrating a
complete home entertainment concept, create new scope for audiovisual indulgence. As compact, stylish units in a variety of front designs, they will add exciting highlights to any living space.
With smart home technology the possibilities of intelligent kitchen networking are virtually unlimited. The building services can all be controlled from a central point in +INTEGRATION®. The system also provides telephone communication and Internet access. Operation from an unobtrusive touch panel couldn't be easier. Functions can also be controlled using any combination of laptops, PDAs and programmable infrared remote.
