Poggenpohl adds embossed-in-register decor panel cabinetry for KBIS 2017
December 18, 2016 | 6:22 pm CST
Decorative printed laminate panel that is embossed in register with the printed wood grain pattern will be shown by Germany's Poggenpohl on cabinetry at KBIS 2017, the Kitchen & Bath Industry Show running Jan. 10-12 in Orlando. The high-end cabinetry manufacturer is supplementing its portfolio with the new, authentic-looking decor laminate panel in silver ash, smoked ash and oak heritage, with what it calls "synchropore embossing."
Such panels rely on high definition printed wood pattern papers that are laminated and embossed so the impression of wood texture is very realistic. On Poggenpohl's cabinetry, these can be ordered with a horizontal or vertical grain direction as desired. The high quality decorative embossing is precisely matched in this case to the respective run of the grain of the decorative print.
New, high quality, innovative details such as the edge-mounted bow handle in the finishes anodized aluminum, anodized stainless steel-colored and anodized black, the mechanical opening system for flap door units in handleless kitchen planning schemes or the modern, lowerable socket elements for the worktop with an additional USB charger round off the 2017 Poggenpohl range.
Poggenpohl has been designing and producing luxury kitchens at its factory in Herford, Germany for over 120 years, making it the world’s longest-established and most renowned kitchen brand. Customized, high-end kitchens delivered to more than 70 countries are created in a manufacturing and assembly area of 54,000 m2. A global network of 450 Poggenpohl studios with highly skilled designers fulfills customers’ ideals of a tailor-made kitchen.
