The Concrete Kitchen by Martin Steininger Wins The 2012 Red Dot Design Award.
Steininger designs for several manufacturers such as Boffi, Living Divani and Porro. They have received the prestigious Red Dot Design award for the newest of their designs, The Concrete Kitchen, assigned by a 30-member expert jury. Creative heads and manufacturers from all over the world submitted a total of 4,515 designs to the renowned product competition. With its fine design language and appealing looks, the concrete kitchen received the globally sought-after red dot design award.
The innovative kitchen is made of ultra-thin 8 mm concrete, which is sturdy yet light. Concrete's heat resistance and food safety make it a material perfectly suitable for kitchens. The manufacturing of it, however, requires a certain know-how and commitment to accuracy.
Every step of the process demonstrates handmade craftsmanship; the form-work is precise; the elaborate finishing is characterized by exact dressing and polishing of the stone.
The combination of solid wood in both the seating area and interior shelving and the integrated fresh herbal beds create a juxtaposition which is interesting and optically appealing.
