Given that the kitchen has evolved into the social centre of the domestic environment, why not take it as the base that informs the design of the rest of the home? Meet the b3 kitchen system from bulthaup.
12 February, 2018
b3 is a comprehensive kitchen system whose application starts in the kitchen, but is not limited to it. With b3, bulthaup’s signature purist aesthetic can extend throughout the home. The range offers a slew of innovative elements including wall panels, shelves and a sideboard that are perfectly at home in the living space. Individually, these elements provide elegant solutions, and together with the kitchen components, they are more than the sum of their parts.
b3 grants an active role to the kitchen wall, which is transformed into a functional element within the kitchen plan. Wall panels are available in various lengths and materials, including laminate, metal, lacquer and wood. Horizontal gaps between panels can be used to attach sleek shelves and hooks with no visible supporting elements.
For those who like to keep everything where they can see it, the range offers function boxes with glass fronts that sit flush with the wall, leaving nothing to disrupt the clean lines of the kitchen. The range also includes a specially developed mixer faucet that allows users to control the outlet’s position as well as the water temperature and flow easily by hand. The faucet can be installed on the worktop, on the wall, or within a function box.
Complementing the b3 range is the monoblock – a custom-built kitchen island tailored exclusively to the individual customer’s needs – from the dimensions and front materials right down to the functions, such as water points and hobs.
In Singapore, bulthaup is carried by The Madison Group.
