TECH­NO­LOG­I­CAL IN­NO­VA­TION AND A DIS­TINCT DE­SIGN LAN­GUAGE MAKE GAGGENAU THE KITCHEN AP­PLI­ANCE MAKER OF CHOICE IN THE MID­DLE EAST

Architectural Digest (UAE) - - Partnership -

Known for grac­ing some of the world’s most high-end homes, lux­ury ap­pli­ance man­u­fac­turer Gaggenau has re­cently opened its big­gest show­room in the Mid­dle East. With a his­tory dat­ing back to 1683, the Ger­man com­pany has rev­o­lu­tionised the do­mes­tic kitchen with its in­ter­na­tion­ally ac­claimed prod­ucts.

Now, with the Gaggenau Gal­le­ria in Dubai, the brand has an im­pres­sive space over­look­ing the Burj Khal­ifa to dis­play it's in­no­va­tive ap­pli­ances and show them in ac­tion. The steel-and-glass show­room has a fea­ture wall made with wood sourced from Gaggenau’s birth­place, the Black For­est, which was also cel­e­brated by the Ger­man-in­flu­enced menu of chef Karl Elias at the launch event. A strik­ing, Arabesque-style ceil­ing adds a re­gional touch.

“This is a tes­ta­ment to our in­di­vid­u­al­ity and de­sign-cen­tric ap­proach within the lux­ury kitchen ap­pli­ance mar­ket,” says To­mas Alonso, CEO of BSH Home ap­pli­ances FZE, “It fur­ther ce­ments our ded­i­ca­tion to rev­o­lu­tion­is­ing the fu­ture of the do­mes­tic kitchen.”

Built to com­bine func­tion­al­ity with sleek aes­thet­ics, Gaggenau’s de­signs work seam­lessly to­gether – think stain­less steel fridges in­te­grat­ing per­fectly with large drinks cool­ers, ovens aligned with built-in cof­fee ma­chines, and hobs blend­ing into Tep­pan Yaki. At Mi­lan’s EuroCucina 2018, the brand un­veiled Gaggenau

Home, a con­cept space fo­cused on open-plan kitchen and liv­ing rooms. It pro­vided a fit­tingly im­pres­sive back­drop to show­case a suite of new launches in­clud­ing the new Vario cool­ing se­ries as well as bak­ing, cof­fee and cook­ing ap­pli­ances. “The Gaggenau Home was based on the scale and de­sign of this new range, and its abil­ity to go far be­yond the kitchen,” adds Alonso. “And, so far, we feel this is some­thing we have achieved with great suc­cess.” gaggenau. com/ae
