The design and technology of the kitchen have changed radically over the centuries – change that has even transformed our perceptions of what a kitchen can be. Today, the finest kitchens are a seamless convergence of art, craftsmanship and engineering, offering capabilities and pleasures undreamt of just a generation ago.
Impressively, many of the technological, design and material advances that define the contemporary luxury kitchen were pioneered by just two specialist brands from Germany – Gaggenau and Poggenpohl. Founded in 1683 and 1892 respectively, both continue to push the state of the art with their latest designs, rooted in a tradition of innovation and an uncompromising approach to quality.
It’s fitting that KI Cubus, the Hong Kong home of both brands, should be just as forward-looking. Opened in 2017 by Kitchen Infinity – a company that has specialised in European kitchens and appliances since 1988 – this 3,000 sq-ft showroom in Causeway Bay boasts a façade largely composed of full-height frameless glass, providing a clear view of an interior whose carefully balanced composition of forms strikes one as a work of art in itself.
As one explores further, more remarkable facets of KI Cubus make their impressions. The light scheme subtly interacts with surfaces and the simple light and dark colour palette, creating a mood of complete calm while drawing the eye from one installation to the next. Nowhere are there signs of imperfect workmanship or unresolved questions of design. Displayed products are functional, and arranged in the space to encourage interaction.
The rewards of doing so are considerable. Complementing the Poggenpohl kitchen ranges are the very latest examples of Gaggenau appliance technology – notably the new Gaggenau ‘Vario cooling 400 series’ wine cabinet and fridge, ‘400 series’ oven, and the brand’s acclaimed line of full surface induction hobs. Each is made to Gaggenau’s exacting standards and incorporates new thinking that makes preserving and preparing food easier than ever before – and with more delicious results.
Not surprisingly, KI Cubus staff are accustomed to working closely with interior designers and architects on upmarket interior projects, as well as helping customers find the products that match their lifestyles and spaces. KI Cubus simply aims for perfection, every time.
