Visitors to the LivingKitchen show will find the Miele stand in Hall 4.2 impossible to miss: The centre of the approximately 720 square-metre exhibition space will be occupied by a big cube intended to embody continuity and durability – characteristics that are often attributed to Miele’s products. But as well as its symbolic meaning, the cube boasts practical benefits too: its interior is furnished as a stylish café.
