IMM/LivingKitchen 2013 – Top Kitchen Products

IMM/LivingKitchen 2013 – Top Kitchen Products

So, I covered top kitchen style trends and top kitchen technology trends emerging from the IMM/LivingKitchen trade show last month in Cologne, Germany. This week is my third and last post on the event: top products. I wish all of these were coming next week or next month to the U.S., but it will probably be a year or more before we see them on our shores and in our stores.

Last week, I promised a third game changer. Here it is, from our BLANCO hosts.

BLANCO 

BLANCO‘s innovative new BLANCO Hot faucet incorporates instant-hot capability. No need for a second spigot. It’s sleek, it’s stylish and it’s faucet technology at its best.

TPB BARCELONA

TPB Barcelona‘s innovative integration of induction burners right into their porcelain slab countertops was my other favorite product at the show. I love that you can customize the number and placement of burners to match your needs, and that they visually blend into the surface.

NEOLITH

Another porcelain slab series I adored was Neolith’s Iron collection. These gorgeous tops lend a rustic sophistication that would blend beautifully with a traditional, transitional or modern kitchen. Porcelain is low-maintenance, heat and scratch resistant, as my readers probably already know, and can be used in your outdoor kitchen, as well as your indoor one.  It can also be used for flooring, cabinetry, splashes, surrounds and much more.

HACKER

I loved Hacker’s Moving Table sliding island top design. When closed, it contributes to a hidden kitchen look. When open, it allows for seating on the other side. Their climbing wall doors were also terrific.
