The product developers of the Austro-German brand manufacturer GRASS demonstrated their instinct for trends with the launch of the movement innovations Tiomos M9 and Tiomos Mirro in 2013. Since then, both hinges have been providing the unique high-tech Tiomos functionality for very demanding door applications. At HOLZ-HANDWERK 2016, GRASS will be presenting the latest addition to the Tiomos M-Series. Tiomos M0 has been developed for thin door applications of 6 millimetres and above, and is designed especially for medium- to high-density materials such as laminates, minerals (e.g. Corian), acrylic or aluminium.
Our world is becoming more transparent – at least in our living spaces. The demand for lightweight solutions and increasingly slimmer surfaces is set to increase, with special focus on materials such as glass that harmonise with all contemporary interior designs.
With their feel for the design trends of tomorrow, GRASS product developers successfully delivered Tiomos Mirro and Tiomos M9 back in 2013. The family was extended to include Tiomos M0 in 2015 and now features three different versions for sophisticated door applications.
Tiomos has long since conquered the global kitchen and living room market with its outstanding functionality and stability. The excellence of the solution details won Tiomos a Red Dot Award Honourable Mention in 2010. One of the features which particularly impressed the jury was the complex inner workings of the hinge arm with its purist design. Housed inside is the integrated damping technology with its tool-free adjustment along with the physically optimised kinematics enabling extremely easy opening of furniture doors as well as minimum gaps.
One system – three new door applications
This premium comfort from GRASS, which has become so essential to high-quality furniture design, is a feature of all three versions: Tiomos Mirro, Tiomos M9 and the new Tiomos M0. Product developer Tarek Utturkar comments: “With the three front connections we have achieved three genuine milestones for special design solutions in the Tiomos family. Tiomos was developed in response to the greatest challenges in contemporary bathroom and living spaces.”
Tiomos Mirro for glass and mirror doors
GRASS has created an elegant solution with the front connection for high-quality glass and mirror 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 from 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 concealed inside the hinge. The design of the hinge remains identical – irrespective of whether Soft-close damping is incorporated. 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 chosen material.
Strength for slim solutions – Tiomos M9
Tiomos M9 also combines sensibility and strength. Designed especially for very slim furniture doors as well as for rebated doors and four-sided mitred applications, Tiomos M9 has an extremely shallow cup depth of just 9 millimetres. Even with a front thickness of only 12 millimetres, the unique hinge system remains durable, firm and stable in all positions.
Tiomos M0 for particularly thin doors
Tiomos M0 moves thin materials such as laminates, minerals (e.g. Corian), acrylic 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 mm to 10 mm. The tool-free damper adjustment ensures a smooth closing movement irrespective of the door size and weight. This perfect motion guarantees permanent stability in all positions. With this latest member of the Tiomos family, manufacturers are not only able to move very thin materials smoothly and easily, but also their equally slim but much heavier counterparts.
High-tech functionality and consistent design language for contemporary furniture
Although the applications for the three hinge versions are very specific, they all feature the unrivalled Tiomos comfort. In addition to the side, depth and stepless height adjustment, this also includes the outstanding kinematics that makes furniture doors open smoothly and extremely easily.
The Tiomos series stands for a unique and consistent design language. With the launch of the M0 hinge, it is now possible to produce traditional as well as modern furniture door applications with a door thickness of 6 mm to 36 millimetres in the same timeless design, with or without integrated Soft-close damping concealed on the inside. Tiomos – the best conceivable movement solution currently available for furniture doors.
