Extension of the Tiomos family for mirror, glass and slender doors: Tiomos M0 moves thin, heavy materi-als smoothly and with ease
With the launch of the movement innovations Tiomos M9 and Tiomos Mirro in 2013, the product developers of the German-Austrian brand manufacturer GRASS already demonstrated their instinct for trends two years ago. Since then both hinges have been providing the high-tech Tiomos functionality for very de-manding door applications. For the interzum 2015 GRASS has extended the Tiomos family by another new member that was designed especially for thin, heavy materials such as stone panels, Corian or aluminium.
Our world is becoming more transparent - at least in our living interiors. In future the demands for lightweight solutions and increasingly slimmer surfaces will increase, with special focus on materials such as glass that blend unobtrusively into all contemporary interior designs.
With their feeling for the design trends of tomorrow, the GRASS product developers already developed Tiomos Mirro and Tiomos M9 two years ago. The family has now been extended by Tiomos M0 and fea-tures three different versions for ambitious door applications.
Tiomos already conquered the global kitchen and living interior market years ago with its excellent functionality and stability. Tiomos won a Red Dot Award Honourable Mention in 2010 for its outstanding detailed solution. The jury was also very impressed by the complex interior of the hinge arm with its purist design that conceals the integrated damping technology with its tool-free adjustment as well as physically optimised kinematics for extremely easy opening of furniture doors.
One system – three new door applications
This GRASS premium comfort that has become an essential element of high-quality furniture design is featured in all three versions, Tiomos Mirro, Tiomos M9 and the new Tiomos M0. Product developer Tarek Ut-turkar comments: "With the three front connections we have achieved three real milestones for special design solutions in the Tiomos family. Tiomos was developed in response to the greatest challenges in con-temporary bathroom and living interiors."
Tiomos Mirro for glass and mirror doors
GRASS has created an elegant solution with the front connection for high-quality mirror and glass doors. The hinge system is attached with an eccentric screw to a self-adhesive adapter on the door and provides permanent and firm stability for fragile materials – without any need to drill the glass. Tiomos Mirro can also be fastened to existing self-adhesive adapters of the Nexis range.
Unique: with Soft-close damping
In addition to the mature fastening technology that has a light, floating look on transparent glass surfaces, Tiomos Mirro now also enables the use of track-proven, fully integrated Soft-close damping for the finest glass and mirror doors. The entire damping technology is invisibly inte-grated into the hinge. With or without Soft-close damping – the design of the hinge remains identical. A clear statement for uncompromising furniture design and a unique option that underlines the transparent character of the furniture while respecting the characteristics of the ma-terial employed.
Strong for slim thicknesses – Tiomos M9
Tiomos M9 also combines sensibility and strength. Designed especially for very slim furniture doors and a four-sided mitred application, Tiomos M9 has an extremely shallow cup depth. Even with a front thickness of only 12 millimetres, the unique hinge system remains durable, firm and stable in all positions.
Tiomos M0 for thin and heavy materials
Tiomos M0 moves thin, heavy materials such as stone panels, Corian or aluminium smoothly and with ease. This new member of the family is simply screwed on without a cup hole and is therefore ideal for materials with a thickness of 6 to 10 mm. The tool-free damper adjustment en-sures a smooth closing movement irrespective of the door size and weight. This perfect motion guarantees permanent stability in all posi-tions. With this new member of the Tiomos family, processors are not only able to move very thin, light and sensitive materials smoothly and easily, but also their equally slim but much heavier counterparts.
High-tech functionality in contemporary furniture design
Although the applications for the three hinge versions are very specific, they all feature the incomparable Tiomos comfort. In addition to the three-dimensional adjustment and the stepless height adjustment, this also includes the outstanding kinematics that makes furniture doors open smoothly and extremely easily.
