Pushing the boundaries
Bucking convention is nothing new at a trade fair of LivingKitchen’s calibre. So, it was only to be expected that a few manufacturers would go for a world-first.
The new Sharp Karakuri fridge-freezer is one of these. It stands out from the crowd because of its asymmetrical five-door design that boasts enough space to satisfy even the biggest of appetites.
Hidden features mean that there’s more to Karakuri than meets the eye. For example, the water and ice dispenser is hidden behind a panel equipped with a proximity sensor so you can open the panel with a simple hand gesture. Sharp says that this is more than just a gimmick: hiding the water dispenser makes for a seamless design and protects from dust and allergens.
AEG’s ComfortLift dishwasher is another first of its kind and gets our vote. Part of the AEG Mastery range, it features the brilliantly simple idea of a lower rack-lifting mechanism. This gently slides the lower basket up, reducing the need for bending when loading or unloading dishes.
Gaggenau was also keen to lighten the load of dishwashing duties, showcasing its 400 integrated dishwasher series at LivingKitchen. The series includes internal LED panels and bulbs that illuminate the interior from every angle, making loading super simple, even in low light.
