NEXT125 | THE NEW HOMELINESS
Following last year's extensive restructuring measure, the next125 display area provides ample space for staging the premium brand's new releases.
In a dedicated section on the top floor of the house4kitchen, the brand demonstrates innovation and creativity: the spectrum of high-quality fronts and authentic materials characteristic of next125 — Ceramic, Fenix, satin lacquer, glass and solid wood — is illustrated on the basis of eight distinctive kitchen configurations. Homely elements, such as cooking table, sideboard and bookshelves, reflect the diversity of the "kitchen" as a living space in all its facets and demonstrate that it is more than just a practical cooking laboratory.
A library-style lounge area provides space for information and inspiration: as a counterpole to the hustle and bustle of the exhibition, it extends an invitation to visitors to discover the "The kitchen for living in" book: a new standard work that illuminates the kitchen living space in all of its facets!

SCHÜLLER | OPTIMUS — NEW STANDARDS IN DRAWER/PULL-OUT SYSTEMS
Only those who question good ideas make them even better. Schüller's continuous commitment will lead to a major success this year: a new generation of drawer/pull-out generation.
It is not without reason that the new OPTIMUS drawer/pull-out system, developed in cooperation with Austrian fittings manufacturer Blum, carries the name is does: the combination of form and function – which is the result of intensive development work by all process participants – is unique on the market.
OPTIMUS is based on a platform that provides a wide range of options and looks ranging from open rail pull-outs and transparent glass boxsides to the closed metal box cap solution. Among the particular features in the OPTIMUS line-up is an elegantly narrow, cubist frame appearance as well as consistently coordinated colouring in agate grey and carbon grey – a high-quality look paired with practical and technical perfection.
SCHÜLLER | 84.5 CM FOR MORE STORAGE SPACE, ERGONOMICS AND AESTHETICS
The new C5 carcase height of 84.5 cm promises an ergonomic working pleasure and additional storage space. Adding a further option to the existing unit heights of C1 (71.5 cm) and C2 (78 cm), Schüller demonstrates that half a grid can make a huge impact – particularly in the frequently used middle pull-out.
In addition to the existing carcase heights of 71.5 and 78 cm, 84.5 cm underscores the trend towards a live in kitchen with a cubic look.
In the new carcase configuration, the height of the middle pull-out is increased by a semi-grid. The result is a 6.5 cm higher carcase — available in the option with handle — which provides real added value because, particularly in the middle, ideal use can be made of additional storage space. The tried and proven basic grid height of 13 cm guarantees optimum lines that are so typical of Schüller kitchens. C5 also satisfies the highest expectations on ergonomics.
H4K | EXHIBITION CENTRE PRESENTED IN A NEW LOOK

It all starts in the reception area with is spacious, homely feel, created by dark,matt colouring, combined with highlights in natural oak and greenery for a touch of vibrancy. Also revamped, a flight of stairs with casual-style seat steps takes the visitor to the top floor which, with its lounge-like character, extends an invitation to linger.
FRANKE | BOX CENTER – SINK AND ACCESSORIES UNITED
Franke shows an extremely smart kitchen solution with the new Franke Box Center at the house4kitchen fair. The easy-to-use system combines sink and kitchen accessories into one attractive unit that further optimizes kitchen workflows - by day and by night and with kitchen accessories that are always within reach.
The special feature: In the night mode, the accessories - consisting of strainer bowl, knife block, chopping board and drainer basket - are invisibly stored away in the smaller bowl of the stainless steel sink in order to save space. While in the day mode, only the accessories needed to prepare food are being removed. This also gives you the possibility to temporarily create a work surface with chopping board and strainer bowl above the large basin.
FRANKE | COMPACT AND ENERGY-EFFICIENT HOB EXTRACTOR IN FLUSH-MOUNT DESIGN
With Mythos 2gether, Franke presents an induction hob with integrated extractor at the house4kitchen fair, which adds a real highlight to the Mythos product line. The hob extractor with its high power, yet comparatively quiet fan not only meets the highest standards in terms of design, but also scores technically across the board.
With the energy efficiency class A+++, Mythos 2gether is currently the most energy-efficient hob extractor on the market. In addition, not only does the automatic pan recognition make everyday kitchen work easier, but also the flush-mounted, cast-iron cover grid. Due to its solid and space-saving design, even heavy pots and pans can be moved from left to right – without having to lift them.

Urban sinks with this extraordinary fastening system are available in four dimensions and ten different colors. A real eye-catcher is the drainer as this one scores with its user-friendly and trendy design.

The trendy colors are available for the Fragranite sink models Kubus 2 and Fresno. Both Fresno and the 76 cm wide Kubus 2 sinks are available with the tap ledge at the side and are therefore also suitable for mounting in front of a window.
The Fragranite sink range Fresno has a large bowl, which is ideal for cleaning baking trays and large pots. The Kubus 2 model is available in three dimensions; as a special feature it has a second work surface inside the bowl.
FRANKE | NEW GENERATION OF THE MARIS COOKER HOOD

The special technical feature of all models is an extraordinary, homogeneously designed control panel with modern and animated touch control function, which is very easy to operate due to its perfect positioning.
NEXT125 | AUTHENTIC KITCHEN
The new claim puts the idealsof next125 in a nutshell: the brand stands for the genuine and authentic. The kitchen as the hub of the home and focal point of life. Practical functionality and quality move into the limelight. next125 focuses on the traditional lasting value of the kitchen which, in terms of design and materiality, speaks sustainability. A style that is contemporary, sleek, precise while at the same time appealing to the emotions. Authentic kitchen expresses all this and, written in English, also signalises the brand's internationality.
NEXT125 | THE BOOK
The kitchen as the most important place in the home is a reflection of its particular day and of the people who live in it. In his book "Die Küche zum Leben – Perspektiven für den Lebensraum Küche“, Professor Kilian Stauss approaches this diversity under the aspects of history, sociology, psychology and, of course, enjoyment, planning and culture. Working with prominent guest authors and Schüller, he has developed a standard reference work on the subject of the kitchen which covers its entire complexity. Appearing on 15 October 2018 from DVAVerlag publishing house, the book is also being promoted in a presentation by Schüller at the Frankfurt Book Fair which takes place from 10-14 October 2018 in Frankfurt. Once again, the fair is expecting over 280,000 visitors, an intellectually exacting target group for next125!

SCHÜLLER | BACK TO BLACK
In combination with onyx black textured spruce effect, the shimmering cool look of the Corona metallic front exudes an understated elegance.The ensemble gets a homely ambience from the sideboard element with thenew sliding doors, lighting full of atmosphere at wall unit level as well as the triad of island, table and bench. Equally as practical as elegant: the Systemo® worktop in matt laminate Fenix onyx black with anti-fingerprint coating for easy everyday maintenance.A natural element comes from the "hanging" panel garden where – thanks to the special LED lighting – herbs and other plants grow really well.
FRANKE | COPPER EDITION
With the elegantly aligned Copper Edition, FRANKE is following the trend towards the use of precious metal in the kitchen: Representing the very popular industrial look, the purist Mythos hood is available in this stylish copper finish as of now. Particularly the copper elements together with the onyx coloured Fragranite sinks Mythos and Kubus as well as the surface of the unique tap Centinox with pull out nozzle, create a very expressive setting. As the perfect match, a 12 mm glass worktop in copper will be introduced.

SCHÜLLER | MORE ROOM | MORE KITCHEN | MORE DELIGHT
Developing a new collection, always with the aim of making life easier for people. And if that makes it better as well, then we’ve achieved a lot. With the assistance of Rosenheim University of Applied Sciences our designers have devised a flexible domestic space concept: MORE room, even on a few square metres. The 2018 innovations enable planning with maximum diversity: MORE kitchen. Whether Colour Concept or atmospheric lighting solutions – the end result is MORE enjoyment.
SCHÜLLER | THE UTILITY ROOM
The expansion of the portfolio to a previously neglected area, the utility room, makes Schüller a pioneer in the industry. As affordable living space is becoming increasingly rare, especially in the big cities, there is a growing need to make clever use of the space that is available. The tall units are real spatial miracles and at the same time easy to assemble and install.
Furthermore, the flexible concept, developed in collaboration with the University of Applied Sciences Rosenheim, optimises workflows with regard to the topics laundry, cleaning, storage, recycling – for maximum organisation and an optimal benefit ratio.
The utility room gives the retailer the possibility to expand the area of competence: through the creation of new furnishing situations, former kitchen buyers can be regained as potential “new” customers allowing
additional turnover. Another advantage of the system: the simple planning and handling, as the planning is facilitated by the usual sales manual and common software – the well-established grid system of 13cm is preserved.
NEXT125 | THE PREMIUM BRAND
Parallel to the collection schüller.C, the premium brand next125 is managed with a lot of passion. next125 is regularly honored with the prestigious Red Dot Award – evidence of the success of the design.
At this years’ Küchenmeile A30, the design features of the current collection are freshly staged. The design of the exhibition, characterised by authentic materials, sharpens the valuable profile, typical of next125.
The staging of high-quality design and architecture books by the wholesaler DT-Collection as well as culinary delights from Fattoria La Vialla create a lively note. Both companies represent potential cooperation partners for our trading partners and thereby upgrade the kitchen exhibitions in a modern way.
FRANKE | THE INNOVATIVE MYTHOS PRODUCT RANGE
Timeless design combined with quality without compromises. Highlight of the Mythos family is the powerful induction hob range. As the perfect match, the new cooker hoods Mythos and Mythos Plus as well as the cooktop fan Mythos will have its premiere at the house4kitchen fair.

SCHÜLLER | EXPERIENCE KITCHENS, DESIGN THE FUTURE
Schüller has been known for kitchens "Made in Germany" for 50 years now. There is one thing, that is especially important to us: to design the future − for our end customers, for our trading partners. For this reason, we have been continuously working on the further development of our kitchen collections schüller.C and next125.
Constantly in focus: our target groups. As we are convinced a company needs to have an eye on the end customer when it comes to producing kitchens characterised by the utmost requirements concerning functionality, design and innovativeness: kitchens for life!
SCHÜLLER | KITCHENS FOR PERSONALITIES
Whether it is in a hotel, in a book shop or in a nice little decoration store – when looking for inspiration for innovative kitchen ideas, we always make a find in places, where our target groups are staying. Our customers’ interests and what they choose to surround themselves with serve as points of reference for the development of new products.
Let us take the new pastel colours as an example. Hardly any fashion magazine renounces on these shades of colour at the moment. They stand for lightness and vitality and are ideal, when it comes to planning kitchens for different target groups – from the romantic single woman to the family. When combined with neutral colours, they create an individual interior concept.
As a result, the innovations of the collection 2017 are, as it is always the case with Schüller, extremely varied and individual, designed in order to express one’s own personality when planning a kitchen.
SCHÜLLER | NEXT125 “BEST OF FIVE”
Product development, but please sustainable – the development of new products for the premium brand next125 is carried out by our designers with the greatest possible care. The decisions are not always simple. What helps is to think about the practicability during trade. What we like to say is: to think from a market perspective. For next125, this means: what forms the image of the brand? What makes next125 the favourite of sellers and final customers? We do not always immediately obtain the response to these questions. Only after a certain period of time, it becomes clear, what has the potential to become a classic.
At this year’s “Küchenmeile A30”, we will present exactly these favourites of trade. The special exhibition “Best of Five” shows the manifold development efforts of the past five years. Anything that has made next125 to what it is today.

SCHÜLLER | NEW EXHIBITION CONCEPT
Schüller is well known for its innovative exhibition concepts. Schüller has now also given the exhibition area in the house4kitchen a completely new face. This is above all due to the new architectural arrangement of the area encompassing 1,100 square metres in total. The asymmetrical structure is emphasized by vertical wooden slats concealing the schüller.C area from view. The resultant, pleasantly open impression conveys peace and calm amidst the hustle and bustle of the fair. The effect is reinforced by the careful choice of materials, with shaded anthracite-coloured tiles, warm oak and dark fibre board wall cladding. Visitors are welcomed at a ceramic reception desk in bright marble finish - a unique eyecatcher.
SCHÜLLER | FOCUS ON TARGET GROUPS
What is typical of Schüller is that, before we start work on a new collection, we focus all our attention on the people for whom our kitchens are built. The technical requirements of schüller.C kitchens have been thought through perfectly. Two overall heights and different plinth heights for adapting to the individual room and user, 4 carcase depths and a variety of planning options are sure to include the best solution for every individual.
However, Schüller owes its typicality to the emotion exuded by every single kitchen. Whether for a romantic single, the man who enjoys cooking, a complete family or the generation seeking convenience and joy of living - they all will find that their Schüller kitchen is not only technically adaptable, but also a place in which to feel at home.
