Porsche Kitchen For Men – Really!

Monday, October 22nd, 2007

Poggenpohl’s Porsche Design kitchen. Would you believe it if I told you – a Porshe Kitchen!! Yet it’s real.

Porsche Kitchen

Jointly designed by German furniture company Poggenpohl M̦belwerke and Porsche Design Group, the P7340 kitchen has all the hallmarks of Porshe Рsimplistic handle-free styling, innovative materials and lots of aluminium, glass and brushed wood. Access to the units is equally stylish Рwith just a gentle touch to access drawers and pullouts, and an equally gentle push to make them retract. Appliances have not been forgotten, with Miele & Cie. KG designated as teh the exclusive supplier of all appliances. Appliance operation is via sensor keys instead of buttons, with user-friendly dialogue displays.

And of course, the pure male kitchen would not be complete without a high tech audio-video system, the one in the Porsche kitchen, an anodised aluminium frame with ultra-glossy surfaces in back-painted glass. All electronics in the built-in LCD module are installed behind glass for protection, and they require no ventilation system. The plug-and-play sound system is both analog and digital.

Poggenpohl explains that their “cooperation with Porsche Design enabled us to design a kitchen whose sleek and functional design language specifically addresses male customers.”

The new kitchen will be on display as a show kitchen and sold in Poggenpohl studios around the world as of spring 2008. US availability will begin in the summer.
