THE NEW LEICHT KITCHENS: MULTIFACETED DESIGN, INDEPENDENT PLANNING

 LEICHT has once again attained the accolade of top selling premium brand in the category of “kitchen specialists in 2012, according to GFK. Further confirmation of the success of the company’s consistently excellent product strategy is demonstrated by the fact that 95% of end customers declared the brand to be innovative, sophisticated and of an extremely high quality.

The new Collection 2013 offers the kitchen planner an even wider spectrum and a greater freedom of design in order to establish a reputation for individual and innovative layouts, thus avoiding comparison with mainstream rivals. New concepts, programmes, colours and materials which will be presented in the autumn exhibitions are the prerequisites for ‘house4kitchen’ and the ‘In-House’ exhibition in Waldstetten.

NEW COLOURS FOR MODERN KITCHENS

With the addition of three fashionable colours, typical of the fifties, sixties and seventies, LEICHT has expanded the colour range of the new Collection with some interesting facets. “Curcuma”, a warm mustard yellow, “saffron”, a bold orange and “petrol” a fresh blue-green, are available in all matt and finely textured programmes.

In addition there is a new natural colour tone “mohair”, a warm grey that can be combined in either matt or glossy laminate, lacquer and glass with many colours and finishes.

NEW PROGRAMMES FOR INDIVIDUAL ROOM ARRANGEMENTS

A particularly vivid surface effect is featured in the new programme “Stratos”. The melamine resin covered laminate front is characterised in relief and features a seamless lasered-thick edge. There are two decors to choose from: “surf” showing a slight wave texture, “patch” a vertical-horizontal design with a textile-type character to the surface. New to the LEICHT range is “Xylo”, a wood veneered oak front. Available in four different stain colours. The brushed thick veneer has decorative knots and cracks, thus achieving the desired ‘aged’ wood effect. The vertically fashioned matching veneer bars with staggered joints also emphasise this feature.

NEW CONCEPTS FOR HANDLE-LESS KITCHEN PLANNING LEICHT

presents a fundamental new concept which, in conjunction with the new programme “Core”, creates an unusual and particularly delicate front appearance. The “Core”-front is produced in two layers, the 4 mm thick laminate is doubled up on a 16 mm thick support panel in such a way, that it creates an overhang in the handle area, serving as grip handle. Because of the projecting grip handle, the support is invisible.

The visible solid compact laminate core accentuates the fronts. In order to show this striking contour even more, the vertical joints have been ‘slimmed’ down by 1 mm. “Core” is available in “arctis”, “frosty white”, in the new colour “mohair” and in “sand grey”.

NEW INTERIOR ARRANGEMENTS FOR A MORE ATTRACTIVE ORDER LEICHT

presents a new organisation system for drawers and pull-outs under the name “Q-Box”. Classically-modern and of high quality are the combination of the light oak with black base-profile film-mats of simulated carbon plastic, formfitting into the cutlery drawers. Several order elements are available to choose from for the individual and flexible arrangement of pull-outs and drawers. There are also sets with porcelain-containers for spices as well as aroma jars.

NEW SHELF-SYSTEMS – FREE STANDING OR FIXED TO THE WALL

“Ambience xtend” is the further development of the “Ambience”-cupboard lighting system, awarded the “if product design award 2011″. In principle the construction is comparable. The shelves with LED-light profiles at the front edge are inserted into live vertical profiles in any required position. With “Ambience xtend” the vertical supports are of simulated stainless steel, aluminium.

They are connected horizontally on each shelf side with support slots from which the shelves can easily be suspended. Thus the supports are connected, the width of the shelf elements is determined, the electric connection closed and stability ensured. “Ambience xtend” is intended to place onto worktops or platforms.

With a ceiling and floor connection it can also be used free standing as a transparent illuminated room divider. Suggestions for individual kitchen planning are also given with the new push-in shelf units. These consist of a 16 mm thick carcase and are available in widths from 30 to 120 cm and in grid heights of 27, 40 and 53 cm. In addition the LEICHT Collection 2013 offers new shelf elements for the attractive end of cupboard runs. They are available for wall, floor and tall units
