Valencia, Spain -- In response to the boom in home improvements and refurbishment over recent years, and given the larger role the kitchen now plays in homes today, to the extent that it is the space that has perhaps undergone the greatest change, the first joint edition of ZOW-TCB has decided to present “The Kitchen of the Future.”
The project combines the functionality and performance of the latest innovations in fittings from the company Blum with the exquisite aesthetics of the most modern kitchen furniture by Modelcuin cocinas, a company of the Tau group.
“The Kitchen of the Future” will show all industry professionals visiting ZOW-TCB an original kitchen fully accessible to all users: the incorporation of lifting systems to provide access to high areas; new mechanisms for opening and closing doors and drawers with just the slightest pressure; hinges with a built-in brake to shut doors in a smoother and more silent way; or folding doors that make it easier to reach objects in top modules.
Purity of lines is another feature of this kitchen for the 21st century. The effect is achieved by integrating latest generation electrical appliances—like steam ovens or plasma TVs—into the furniture. Moreover, special attention has been paid to the colour combination of the various elements in the Modelcuin kitchen.
For cooktops, the chosen option is porcelain stoneware: a revolutionary material providing excellent technical performance while also offering great decorative potential.
Thanks to the modular design in various sizes and materials, together with the play of volumes in this new ZOW-TCB proposal, this showcase modern kitchen and living space can be adapted to suit all kinds of requirements.
“The Kitchen of the Future” is part of the programme of tie-in activities organised to round off the product exhibition on view at the International Exhibition of Components and Accessories for the Furniture Industry (ZOW, Trend & Design) and Professional Fair of Kitchen, Bathroom, Refurbishing and Joinery Suppliers (TCB). Also included in the programme of activities is the presentation of the latest in machinery and tools for joinery, or a live demo of the refurbishment of different rooms in the home by young students taking part in a wood-furniture vocational training course.
ZOW-TCB opens its doors from 3rd to 5th November at Feria Valencia, concurrently with the 6th International DIY Fair, EUROBRICO.
