The right angle is in again. Whereas the sides of many drawer systems often thicken towards the inside or taper towards the back, Poggenpohl (hall 4.2, stand A010 B011) is presenting a home-grown pull-out shelf design that consists entirely of right angles and straight lines. The filigree-looking frames are smooth inside and out, just 8 mm thick and made of light but robust aluminium. According to the kitchen manufacturer, they are thus the thinnest frames on the market to date.

The purpose of such drawers and pull-outs is obviously to keep order – and Poggenpohl has developed two organisation systems to simplify the process. The box system in real walnut or maple consists of various inserts for numerous configurations: universal boxes with adjustable cross dividers, cutlery trays and special knife inserts, but also holders for things like spice jars and plates.

Until now, LivingKitchen exhibitor Wesco (hall 5.2, stand B050 C059) has been known for its waste containers and kitchen accessories. However, the housewares manufacturer based in the German Sauerland region is now breaking new ground with its aluminium furniture series Wesco aluments, which is to be introduced at the imm cologne at the Living Kitchen.

As you would expect from an expert in metal processing, the base frame is made of aluminium profiles – anodised in natural colour or with a brushed stainless steel effect – and can be combined with real wood, laminate, glass, or leather.
