Leaders in the design and manufacture of quality German Kitchen furniture, Rotpunkt, walked away as winners of ‘Innovation in Kitchen Product Design’ for its Zerox Fineline XT Snow Kitchen with innovative room divider at this year’s Designer Kitchen & Bathroom Awards.

Now in its 16th successive year, the Designer Kitchen & Bathroom Awards 2018 held its annual award ceremony on 10th October 2018, at the glorious Grade II listed Grand Connaught Rooms, in Covent Garden, London. Hosted by English radio and television presenter, George Lamb, the Designer Awards has become a true honour in design and celebrates the best residential kitchen and bathroom design projects and products in the UK and worldwide. Judged by an expert panel of highly respected industry figures, this annual prized luncheon to recognises and rewards the very best talent across the kitchen and bathroom design industry.

Rotpunkt triumphed at this year’s Designer Awards, bestowed with an ‘Innovation in Kitchen Product Design’ for its pioneering and highly innovative kitchen furniture solution, the Rotpunkt Zerox Fineline XT Snow Kitchen with multiuse Room Divider.

 Designed with the modern lifestyle in mind, the Rotpunkt Zerox Kitchen is seen here with an ergonomic Herb Garden concept which demonstrates how furniture by Rotpunkt can be both stylish and good for your health: creating a dedicated area to cultivate organic food and ingredients to cook with, grow fresh herbs or fragrant flowers to add natural aroma and beauty.

This 104cm tall Room Divider is an independent unit which can be affixed to adjoining worktops, base units and drawers to create a unique storage solution in the modern kitchen. In this case, Rotpunkt recommend herbs as a great way to use this space – simply line the recessed cavity with membrane, fill with soil and get ready to plant your herbs without damage to the furniture! Alternatively, this space could also be used as an open ice bucket [if lined appropriately], keeping your drinks cool and on hand when entertaining, or as a simple easy-access storage unit that is raised for extra utility or as a room divide.

As design possibilities open up, manufacturers like Rotpunkt are creating innovative furniture solutions that provide you freedom of expression to use them. The new Zerox Fineline XT Snow Kitchen with Room Divider is ideal for creating a sustainable kitchen environment in the city, suburbs or rural areas. Breathing life back into the standard white kitchen, the Extra Matt melamine snow white doors are designed with Black Line: a fine black circumferential zero-joint edging that defines each door, drawer and unit.

Matt Phillips Head of UK operations says “Receiving this design award is a great honour for both brand and business, especially in a year when we have introduced brand new concepts, furniture designs and interior storage solutions. The Zerox Fineline XT Snow Kitchen is a great example of how we pay dividends to the ‘added-value’ features, so we can break away from the more conventional design portfolio and answer the markets need for ‘more than just kitchen furniture’. By inviting nature in to the kitchen, we have been able to successfully remove the boundaries between inside and out, and prove that a lack of outdoor space is no longer a hindrance: whatever size of kitchen!”
