Functionality for every day and every weather, without being commonplace. Thanks to its innovative design, the E-Jal Col® stainless steel exterior blind is worlds apart from its predecessors as a facade element. The Innovation Prize 2017 of the BMK jury has now been followed by the German Design Award "Winner" of the Design Council in the category Building and Elements. An award that not only enjoys the highest recognition in design circles worldwide, but is also seen as a trend-setting innovative achievement in professional circles and markets.
The area30 concept of presenting ourselves even more unconventionally, with more creativity and solution-orientation with "Attractive Visions" has proven to be right on target. On all the days of the fair, on the open and yet clearly structured area, we managed to inspire the specialist public with a strongly motivating newcomer range and attractive function presentations so much that we were really packed out at times.
"Naber – the original". This motto has stood for imaginative and advanced ventilation technology in the kitchen for over 50 years. This continuity has been successful, as Naber is the world’s no. 1 partner, both for kitchen planners and craftsmen as well as for the appliance and kitchen furniture industry.
"Naber – The original." stands for the most sophisticated air duct technology for household kitchens – for over 50 years. It’s not for nothing that we’re the global market leader and contact partner number one for kitchen planners and craftsmen as well as for the appliance and kitchen furniture industry.
Trendy design scenarios
Fixed kitchen structures are dissolving and being replaced by flexible space zones which enable more individual placement scenarios with decorative niche rear walls and stylish railing/shelf systems. Trendy SENSEit decors – material imitations or concrete and rust – stylistically and haptically enrich the comprehensive Naber PICit niche rear wall programme.
Combined talents are in demand in everyday kitchen work
Combined storage space and organisation solutions for front pull-out systems have developed thematically right to the top. Smooth in handling, variable in use, robust and easy to install, on the one hand they have to be able to separate waste hygienically and on the other hand, they have to be able to store practical kitchen aids in the same cabinet in a space-saving fashion.
Naber duct systems are the perfect partner for extractor hoods.
Kitchen vapours now have a job to do: to disappear from the home as completely, as quietly and as energy-efficiently as possible. The extensive air duct product portfolio from the kitchen technology specialist Naber takes care of precisely this.
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.
