Habitus Loves… EuroCucina: Technology of the Kitchen 2014

The Milan Furniture Fair 2014 this year encompassed EuroCucina, showcasing the world-leading design brands specialising in modular kitchens and kitchen appliances. Here we pick out some of the best appliances we saw – and we’re pretty convinced that they’re going to take your kitchen experience into completely new territories! Alice Blackwood reports.

PowerClean™ dishwasher

Created by: Whirlpool

Why we love it: The built-in version of the Whirlpool 6TH SENSE PowerClean™ Dishwasher with PowerDry option features sturdier racks, a flexi-load system with foldable section and beautiful dark grey detailing. Most important is a self-cleaning filter with Turbidity Sensor that varies the cycle according to turbidity.

Futura ventilation unit

Created by: Elica

Why we love it: Futura (from GUTMANN) is an extendible trough ventilation unit with invisible exhaust. Minimalist in its aesthetic, Futura combines stainless steel and glass elements with LED-effect lighting. The entire module can disappear into the counter top at the bush of a button. It’s also a red dot design award winner.

Ovens 200 Series

Why we love it: These beautiful and elegant ovens are built and flush-fitted into their surroundings. Colour variations include Gaggenau Anthracite, Metallic or Silver. Another innovation is the ovens’ control module with touch display operation combined with two easy-to-use rotary knobs.

Created by: KitchenAid

Why we love it: To celebrate its 95th anniversary, Kitchen Aid has created a new aesthetic for its major kitchen appliances. You may have spied the lovely red medallions on the handles of this wine fridge – it’s engraved with the KitchenAid logo and the brand’s year of origin, 1919.

Why we love it: Isn’t this just beautiful? The wok trough is integrated into the ceramic glass screen and allows for precise power control. And the product even comes with a matching wok pan. Seamless and sleek.
