A Latitude of Creativity

October 31, 2023

A simple design element can create a perceptible difference if it is created with the user’s joy in mind.

Historical elements are taking on ever-growing importance in urban environments. A textbook example of this trend is the newly interpreted freestanding sideboard, designed for the kitchen by German company Siematic, a family-owned company that is almost a century old. The striking design of this sideboard with its sloped side panels and distinctive silhouette can be installed with kitchen elements such as cooktops and sinks. It can also be impeccably rounded out by matched or coordinated cabinet ensembles, in which an oven, dishwasher and/or refrigerator can be installed.

Kitchen as an object of joy

A kitchen is a place where personal taste can be celebrated to the heart's content, and not just in culinary terms. For planning, design, and furnishing, it also provides great latitude for creativity. For more and more people all over the world, the kitchen is the most important and most frequently used room today. Nobody knows what the kitchen of the future will look like but with each new technological advancement, the realms of possibility are extended ever further.

Today’s modern kitchen is embedded within the smart house and presupposes a digital lifestyle. However, in order to get it right, to create spaces and technologies that people will want to use, not just admire from a distance, there is a need to disarticulate the domestic from the digital. One way to do this involves complicating the understanding of the kitchen, moving beyond seeing it as a collection of wires, appliances and internet points, to thinking about it as a space in which people really live.

Ulrich W. Siekmann, Managing Director and CEO of Siematic Möbelwerke, says it is important to reinterpret the kitchen and develop solutions that give just as much importance to emotions as functions. The range pictured here is geared to make life easier and enrich what the customer desires most: something that brings delight - every day.

"Your Lifestyle – Your Kitchen" - under this motto, international kitchen specialists, interior designers, and journalists as part of this year's Milan Furniture Fair got to see a new showroom of the company on Viale Monte Santo in the city where the new designs were on display.

Based on a new design principle, three new kitchen style collections: Pure, Urban and Classic were introduced by the company. Siematic is a premium brand with a long history, and its kitchens have gained an international reputation for their design, elegance and high level of functionality. Urban has a cosmopolitan feel, combining various styles; Pure is all about modern style, and Classic reflects the world of classic design. The Urban style collection was launched earlier this year in a presentation featuring the new freestanding cabinet called Siematic 29. These new kitchen design examples, by combining vertical and horizontal structures, open and closed elements, and light and dark materials, create an appealing range of design possibilities.
