In Birmingham, the corner will be redefined: With CORNERSTONE MAXX, the owner-managed company Vauth-Sagel is unlocking the often wasted and untidy interior of corner units in fitted kitchens as effectively and comfortable as never before. At the kbb Birmingham 2018, retailers, kitchen fitters and trade customers can experience the new system live. “Our message is: we have understood your message,” says CEO Claus Sagel. “We have understood what consumers would like to see in their homes, what kitchen fitters expect, and what the retailers and the industry need. And we took all of these realisations on board when we designed CORNERSTONE MAXX. With this totally innovative corner unit solution, we are setting new benchmarks on the market, as proven by our recent win of a German Design Award 2018”.

CORNERSTONE MAXX – Maximum re-imagination of the corner

CORNERSTONE MAXX offers a maximum of comfort: The innovative system brings the contents of two tray-like shelves fully in front of the unit. The often badly or even completely unused spaces in the corner unit are therefore made usable in an extremely comfortable way. CORNERSTONE MAXX does not obstruct the adjacent units as it swings out and comes to rest fully in front of its own unit. The movement sequence is supported in a unique way by a PAM (“Power-Assisted-Movement”) system.  Thanks to this lifting and a soft open/soft close mechanism, the interior slides in and out almost effortlessly, and noiselessly.


CORNERSTONE MAXX is unique in terms of the maximum of functionality it offers: Thanks to the elegant design, the fixing system is almost invisible yet achieves a load bearing capacity of up to 25 kilograms per shelf. The shelves themselves are of a modern linear design and, in contrast to the competitor products on the market, they make do without unnecessary and annoying indentations; the storage space is therefore utilised to the maximum as the shelves can be used to their full extent.


CORNERSTONE MAXX also offers a maximum of convenience to the fitter: The system consists of only three parts and makes do with just one mounting point – a single fixing pole ensures a maximum of stability and makes the height easy to adjust even after it has been fitted. Vauth-Sagel also achieves all of this with fewer screws and less drilling – which not only saves time but also valuable storage space.


Not even a year after it was launched in May 2017, CORNERSTONE MAXX has already attracted a maximum of praise: It has recently won one of the best-known international design prizes, the German Design Award 2018, which is awarded by the renowned German Design Council, the ultimate authority for brand and design in Germany. The mission of this highest instance: To show the world what is happening on the German design scene – and in this respect, the new corner unit solution CORNERSTONE MAXX is an impressive ambassador for German design with outstanding engineering.
