Poggenpohl Porsche Design Kitchen P7340.
Porsche Design and Poggenpohl Mobelwerke present the P’7340 a different kind of kitchen with sleek and functional design that is perfect for the modern chef.
The concept of the Porsche Design kitchen is of course a masculine approach radically different from your average kitchen. Many parts are made from aluminum, this gives it an amazing look that we men love, while the modular design and integrated LED lights add to the dynamic look. Several factors were taking into account when designing this state of the art kitchen.
Partnership of equals: when Porsche Design and Poggenpohl collaborate on a new kitchen range, the result is as dramatic as it is revolutionary. Innovative design and precision engineering combine to create a kitchen of unique and enduring appeal. Form and function meld into one – a kitchen that expresses its purpose with drama, clarity and grace.
Defining the frame
The key design feature of the Porsche Design Kitchen is the aluminum frame. Strong, simple and linear, its modularity is almost infinitely adaptable. Unlike the classic fitted kitchen, elements no longer need to be arranged side by side but can be positioned anywhere within the frame.
Handleless fronts emphasize the clean, uncompromised lines of the kitchen furniture. Alternatively, practical aluminum rail handles accentuate the kitchen’s horizontal lines. Assisted drawer openings operate at the touch of a finger, automatically gliding out a short distance. They close in response to a light push; a soft-close mechanism slows them down and automatically completes the closing cycle.
The inset door fits precisely within its frame, the front edge of which is finished with a brushed aluminum profile. A narrow shadow gap creates a distinctive feature, which is repeated throughout the kitchen.
Materials & Finishes
High-quality materials and unique finishes further define the unique look of the Porsche Design Kitchen. In addition to the wonderful aluminum-framed cabinets, all metal parts are sealed with special anodized coatings in exclusive color shades, while wooden surfaces display their texture and grain.
Porsche Design is a luxury brand with a particular focus on functional, timeless and purist design. All products of the brand are designed in the Porsche Design Studio in Zell am See, Austria, and are characterized by a pure and clean design aesthetic. An unmistakable signature look. Quintessentially, iconic style.
Porsche Design has branched out beyond its automotive roots to create products that encompass fashion, sport, travel and the home. Porsche Design’s Roland Heiler explains the thinking behind Poggenpohl’s Porsche Design range.
“The Porsche Design Studio in Zell am See has been designing kitchen appliances and pieces of furniture for many years. Some pieces have become classics, others have become best sellers. Therefore, it was rather obvious for Porsche Design that we should devote some effort to designing a modern kitchen. And who could have been better suited as a partner than Poggenpohl? The “man’s kitchen” that we created indicates that together we pursue a new path, deliberately mixing up the classical division of male and female labour and following a new trend instead.”
“A growing number of modern men take to cooking – because they entertain one of the many single households, because they want to do their best as single fathers, or because they chose cooking for a hobby that they pursue seriously and to which they devote a lot of time.”
“Kitchens are gradually turning into a home’s central meeting point; kitchens and living areas merge, and cooking with friends has become a fashionable social event. And just as a Porsche offers a unique and fascinating driving experience, so too a modern, well-equipped kitchen transforms the preparation of exquisite food into a special event. Beyond this, one thing still holds true, whether on the road or at home: attractive design pleases our desire for aestheticism.”
