DEKKER | ETHNIC NATURE AND MONOCHROME – THESE ARE THE TOP KITCHEN TRENDS FOR 2018
Green, earthy tones, hand-crafted and with industrial metal accents in gold and copper: these are the keywords of ETHNIC NATURE, a trend inspired by ethnic cultures and tropical climates. Slightly less exotic, but just as eye-catching is MONOCHROME, a recurring trend with a different emphasis each time. MONOCHROME stands for tone-on-tone design. We combine different materials and structures to create a distinct visual identity. Examples include the ultra-matt Fenix NTM® with high-gloss ceramics, and structures with diagonal effects.
DEKKER | BRINGING THE TRENDS TO THE DUTCH KITCHEN MARKET
Dekker finds inspiration for kitchen furnishings from the things that influence our lives and homes: fashion, nature, cars, architecture, furniture and so on. An in-house team of material experts, industry insiders and marketing specialists tailors the trends to the Dutch kitchen sector, and develops materials, colours and products that are both highly contemporary and distinctive. Mood boards inspire you and your customers, and highlight which new and existing materials, structures and colours fit the trends perfectly.
FRANKE | COPPER EDITION
With the elegantly aligned Copper Edition, FRANKE is following the trend towards the use of precious metal in the kitchen: Representing the very popular industrial look, the purist Mythos hood is available in this stylish copper finish as of now. Particularly the copper elements together with the onyx coloured Fragranite sinks Mythos and Kubus as well as the surface of the unique tap Centinox with pull out nozzle, create a very expressive setting. As the perfect match, a 12 mm glass worktop in copper will be introduced.
FRANKE | NEW HOT-WATER TAP MONDIAL
For the first time, FRANKE will present at Löhne the new hot-water tap Mondial in two versions. This high-quality, stainless steel tap with swivel spout together with the 5 liters boiler offers as 3-in-1 version cold, hot and filtered boiling water, the 4-in-1 version in addition provides also filtered cold water.
FRANKE | SMART PRODUCT RANGE WITH NEW HOODS
As addition to the recent Smart product range, FRANKE will present the new pull-out hood as well as the Smart Flat hood. The Smart range is specifically designed for young people and young families who, despite smaller budget, do not want to make any compromises when it comes to design and functionality. The components harmonize ideally in terms of design and align perfectly as far as handling and operation is concerned.
SCHÜLLER | MORE ROOM | MORE KITCHEN | MORE DELIGHT
Developing a new collection, always with the aim of making life easier for people. And if that makes it better as well, then we’ve achieved a lot. With the assistance of Rosenheim University of Applied Sciences our designers have devised a flexible domestic space concept: MORE room, even on a few square metres. The 2018 innovations enable planning with maximum diversity: MORE kitchen. Whether Colour Concept or atmospheric lighting solutions – the end result is MORE enjoyment.
SCHÜLLER | THE UTILITY ROOM
The expansion of the portfolio to a previously neglected area, the utility room, makes Schüller a pioneer in the industry. As affordable living space is becoming increasingly rare, especially in the big cities, there is a growing need to make clever use of the space that is available. The tall units are real spatial miracles and at the same time easy to assemble and install.
Furthermore, the flexible concept, developed in collaboration with the University of Applied Sciences Rosenheim, optimises workflows with regard to the topics laundry, cleaning, storage, recycling – for maximum organisation and an optimal benefit ratio.
The utility room gives the retailer the possibility to expand the area of competence: through the creation of new furnishing situations, former kitchen buyers can be regained as potential “new” customers allowing
additional turnover. Another advantage of the system: the simple planning and handling, as the planning is facilitated by the usual sales manual and common software – the well-established grid system of 13cm is preserved.
NEXT125 | THE PREMIUM BRAND
Parallel to the collection schüller.C, the premium brand next125 is managed with a lot of passion. next125 is regularly honored with the prestigious Red Dot Award – evidence of the success of the design.
At this years’ Küchenmeile A30, the design features of the current collection are freshly staged. The design of the exhibition, characterised by authentic materials, sharpens the valuable profile, typical of next125.
The staging of high-quality design and architecture books by the wholesaler DT-Collection as well as culinary delights from Fattoria La Vialla create a lively note. Both companies represent potential cooperation partners for our trading partners and thereby upgrade the kitchen exhibitions in a modern way.

SCHÜLLER | EXPERIENCE KITCHENS, DESIGN THE FUTURE
Schüller has been known for kitchens "Made in Germany" for 50 years now. There is one thing, that is especially important to us: to design the future − for our end customers, for our trading partners. For this reason, we have been continuously working on the further development of our kitchen collections schüller.C and next125.
Constantly in focus: our target groups. As we are convinced a company needs to have an eye on the end customer when it comes to producing kitchens characterised by the utmost requirements concerning functionality, design and innovativeness: kitchens for life!
SCHÜLLER | KITCHENS FOR PERSONALITIES
Whether it is in a hotel, in a book shop or in a nice little decoration store – when looking for inspiration for innovative kitchen ideas, we always make a find in places, where our target groups are staying. Our customers’ interests and what they choose to surround themselves with serve as points of reference for the development of new products.
Let us take the new pastel colours as an example. Hardly any fashion magazine renounces on these shades of colour at the moment. They stand for lightness and vitality and are ideal, when it comes to planning kitchens for different target groups – from the romantic single woman to the family. When combined with neutral colours, they create an individual interior concept.
As a result, the innovations of the collection 2017 are, as it is always the case with Schüller, extremely varied and individual, designed in order to express one’s own personality when planning a kitchen.
SCHÜLLER | NEXT125 “BEST OF FIVE”
Product development, but please sustainable – the development of new products for the premium brand next125 is carried out by our designers with the greatest possible care. The decisions are not always simple. What helps is to think about the practicability during trade. What we like to say is: to think from a market perspective. For next125, this means: what forms the image of the brand? What makes next125 the favourite of sellers and final customers? We do not always immediately obtain the response to these questions. Only after a certain period of time, it becomes clear, what has the potential to become a classic.
At this year’s “Küchenmeile A30”, we will present exactly these favourites of trade. The special exhibition “Best of Five” shows the manifold development efforts of the past five years. Anything that has made next125 to what it is today.

SCHÜLLER | NEW EXHIBITION CONCEPT
Schüller is well known for its innovative exhibition concepts. Schüller has now also given the exhibition area in the house4kitchen a completely new face. This is above all due to the new architectural arrangement of the area encompassing 1,100 square metres in total. The asymmetrical structure is emphasized by vertical wooden slats concealing the schüller.C area from view. The resultant, pleasantly open impression conveys peace and calm amidst the hustle and bustle of the fair. The effect is reinforced by the careful choice of materials, with shaded anthracite-coloured tiles, warm oak and dark fibre board wall cladding. Visitors are welcomed at a ceramic reception desk in bright marble finish - a unique eyecatcher.
SCHÜLLER | FOCUS ON TARGET GROUPS
What is typical of Schüller is that, before we start work on a new collection, we focus all our attention on the people for whom our kitchens are built. The technical requirements of schüller.C kitchens have been thought through perfectly. Two overall heights and different plinth heights for adapting to the individual room and user, 4 carcase depths and a variety of planning options are sure to include the best solution for every individual.
However, Schüller owes its typicality to the emotion exuded by every single kitchen. Whether for a romantic single, the man who enjoys cooking, a complete family or the generation seeking convenience and joy of living - they all will find that their Schüller kitchen is not only technically adaptable, but also a place in which to feel at home.
