Kesseböhmer is breathing new life into ‘dead’ corner space. With the „LeMans“ corner cabinet pull-out, the company is putting forward a solution brimming with persuasive features that was set to be very well received at interzum 2019 in Cologne.
Live demonstrations will see various kitchen corner solutions pitted against each other in direct comparisons. Results have shown that the „LeMans“ offers up to 70 per cent more storage space than a cabinet with pull-out shelves when it comes to the ‘dead’ corner space.
„LeMans“ allows the otherwise ‘dead’ corner space to be exploited to its full potential by offering an elegant and perfectly designed motion combining turns and rotations that brings the entire cupboard contents to the front of the unit.
Each of the shelves can be pulled out individually and fully. The high-quality workmanship means even particularly heavy pots and pans can be stored in this space-saving solution, as each shelf can support up to 25 kg with ease.
At Interzum, Kesseböhmer was presenting two similar designs for 60 cm base units at Stand D020/E021 in Hall 8.1. This direct comparison will serve to illustrate the differences in pure storage space.
One of these designs is the „LeMans“ with two trays plus a drawer, while the other features two pull-out shelves and a single drawer.
These three levels offer space savings of nearly 21 per cent in the „LeMans“, with this figure rising to 31 per cent for two levels even without taking the drawer into consideration.
The geometry of the tray is reminiscent of the French 24-hour race track and can even offer up to 70 per cent more storage space than a cabinet with pull-out drawers in the ‘dead’ corner.
This is because the rounded shape is ideal for accommodating pots and pans, whose handles can even extend out beyond the railing in the „LeMans“ to save even more storage space.
The adjustable height options create the optimal storage space for any high-sided pan and ensure everything is always within easy reach.
In addition to being a base unit fitting, the „LeMans“ is also available for highboards and tall cabinets.
The patented four-arm-joint technology guides the shelving units smoothly and reliably in each configuration.
What’s more, the cushioned self-closing mechanism ensures quiet closing even at maximum load.
Kesseböhmer’s display at Interzum from 21 to 24 May 2019 demonstrated once more that the round peg really does fit best into the square hole and ‚dead corners‘ in the kitchen are a thing of the past.
No other fitting knows better how to use the normally rather inaccessible space in the base unit area.
