Presented to an international professional audience for the first time at the leading global trade fair of the supplier industry, the new Naber metal duct system COMPAIR® STEEL flow was able to convince architects, kitchen planners and fitters with its unique qualities. Here, as a world first, the focus was on a flat/round duct system which meets the highest requirements for tightness and the increased international fire protection requirements.
Formulate a clear development goal and realise it in a relatively short time. What sounds so easy here not only required enormous efforts and investments behind the scenes of our own development department so as to be able to present a new world novelty market-ready in time for the küchenwohntrends. Which made the knock-on effect of the new metal duct system COMPAIR® STEEL flow, compatible with all hood and downdraft fans, on the specialist audience even greater on all the days of the fair.
Final sprint for the completion of the new high-bay warehouse. The new building was a much-needed investment in the company’s future. Due to the steady growth of our kitchen accessories and interiors range as well as the successful expansion of our sales activities, our storage capacities had reached their limits.
Convenient and well-organised storage space is becoming increasingly important, not just at the kitchen workplace. The shapely utensils box Cox Work® is a practical organisational aid and can be used freestanding or behind front pull-outs in Cox® systems for the orderly storage of various work materials and accessories.
Non-flammable, extremely sturdy and fully compatible, the new metal air duct system from the world market leader Naber opens up entirely new planning variants for extractor hoods.
In the discussion about exhaust air versus circulating air hoods, the verdict of the German consumer safety group Stiftung Warentest is clear: all the 21 wall hoods tested, including eight head-free hoods, perform worse in circulating air operation than in exhaust air mode. Air duct systems and wall conducts by the kitchen technology specialist Naber ensure particularly energy-efficient and quiet exhaust air operation.
An extractor hood is now part of every kitchen. So that kitchen professionals can perfectly meet the needs of their customers, the technical specialist Naber offers a coordinated, tried and tested range of innovative air ducts, wall conducts and exterior blinds.
The Naber developers have won Silver in the category kitchen accessories for further outstanding performance in the ventilation technology segment. On the occasion of the Living Kitchen, the BMK jury awarded the wall conduct outside blind E-Jal Col® the Innovation Prize 2016/2017.
Mobile furnishing is part of a changing attitude to life in urban society. Not only in the private, personal area - also in the social, public area we are witnessing a dynamic development towards a new spatial flexibility with high individualisation opportunities. At the imm/Living Kitchen, the Naber trade fair team received a correspondingly high level of attention for a more than inspiring shop & bistro presentation of the Concept Kitchen system. Professionals, such as interior architects, decorators, and shopfitters, led the visitor statistics. Many start-ups took advantage of the public days to seek advice on flexible furnishing concepts with cult character for shopping and dining concepts.
THERMOBOX started the new year with the world’s most important sustainability award, the American "Green Good Design Award 2017" in the category "Products". This is awarded each year by the Chicago Athenaeum Museum of Architecture and Design in cooperation with the European Centre for Architecture, Art, Design and Urban Studies for particularly environmentally friendly projects.
Extractors which draw the cooking vapours off directly at the worktop are in vogue: the downdraft technology provides headroom above the cooker and flexibility in kitchen design. However, important points have to be observed during planning and installation, so that moisture and mould aren’t given a chance. Naber, the specialist for air technology in the kitchen lets you know how.
The kitchen accessories specialist Naber points to a still largely unknown topic: the problems that downdraft extractors can cause in combination with energy-efficient and hygienic exhaust air systems. The background is the conversion to energy-saving EC motors and the use of purely recirculating operation in some models. Several manufacturers have already reacted.
Just before the end of the year, the decision of the design and lifestyle blogger, journalist, author and stylist Holly Becker provided for a pleasant surprise. She has chosen Concept Kitchen to showcase her creative energy on the inspiration ground "immspired – the blogger’s trend show" in Cologne.
After careful market analysis, the innovator and lateral thinker Naber sees further potential for the mobile module programme Concept Kitchen beyond kitchen/home/office in the bistro and shop furnishing sector. In the urban area, creative themed businesses are increasingly developing in the trendy neighbourhoods on small and affordable rental spaces. Cafés, shops, bistros or combined forms, which invite you to relax and shop, enjoy and get together, are become more and more popular. Mobility, authenticity, clarity, design freedom, reduction and concentration on the essentials also dominate when it comes to the furnishing style of creative start-ups.
With the new catalogue set 17/18, the ideas generator Naber continues to show its flair for sales promoting print communication as a fixed service element in multi-channel marketing. Internal customer surveys show that the acceptance of the printed "Thick Green Book" and the interiors catalogue TABLON® are as high as ever and indispensable in combination with the use of the rapid web dialogue.
Brexit? No problem for innovation-minded companies and trendsetters like Naber. The annual hotspot for professionals of the design scene is still a must for the Nordhorn-based team. After four days (21.-24.09.2016) of professional communication on an internationally established stage with architects, interior designers, kitchen and interior specialists, the Naber trade fair team reported many new contacts, strong impressions and a host of new experiences.
Clear message for trend scouts: track down products which correspond to the individual requirements of contemporary kitchen equipment and also make a value-added contribution. The Naber trade fair crew assisted the systematic search for tailor-made functionality, intelligent design concepts and uncomplicated solutions at the top-styled trade fair stand area. Here, the response to the increasing complexity of issues and demands was as professional as ever.
For over fifteen years, in cooperation with universities and in close collaboration with industrial providers of household appliances, the Nordhorn-based kitchen accessories specialist Naber has developed innovative accessories for the area of exhaust air technology. The aim is both to create a healthy indoor climate in which the occupants feel comfortable, and to permanently protect the structure of the property against damp.
Time to make amazing discoveries again
If you don’t come, you could miss a lot.

Once again, the expert jury of the German Design Council has ratified the developers of the Naber-THERMOBOX an innovative engineering achievement – this time in the product category Building Technologies.
