PRESS RELEASE Based on concepts - Attractive designs from the nolte core range at kbb Birmingham Löhne, 26 January 2016. From 6 to 9 March, German manufacturer Nolte Küchen can be found on stand N90 in Hall 18. Six displays span contemporary as well as traditional designs from the core range, nolte. The wood concept, represented by door ranges ARTWOOD and LEGNO in combination with high-gloss and matt lacquered finishes, will be a major theme on the stand comprising around 200 square metres and including a coffee bar and reception area. Nolte Küchen are showcasing at kbb Birmingham for the third time running. They are joining forces with BK Nolte Contracts (BKNC), Nolte Küchen’s project partner and supplier for many of the UK’s leading house builders and developers. Nolte Küchen have made a name for themselves as a manufacturer with a wide product range, earning them the verdict “Most popular kitchen brand” in a survey conducted by the German Institute for Service Quality (DISQ) for news channel n-tv in January 2015. A large choice, however, needs to be structured to provide guidance for both retailers and their customers. UK Country Manager Bob Marsden explains: “What started with the Matt Lacquer Concept the previous year has now been continued by introducing the Wood Concept for 2016. All new doors should be seen as additions to the existing range and can be combined freely, resulting in endless individual designs. However, there are suggested pairings, such as ARTWOOD and new matt lacquer range FEEL from the same price group, that allow consumers to narrow down the choice when looking for a specific style. It’s a starting point also for the sales conversation, offering easy access to the ranges rather than leaving the customer overwhelmed.” With the ARTWOOD and LEGNO fronts customers can choose between a realistic wood decor and a wood veneer. ARTWOOD has an innovative MFC finish with authentic texture and is available in five decors, of which Walnut Royal and Walnut Cuba are shown in Birmingham. LEGNO with its thick veneer complete with knots and cracks comes in three shades, with Oak Truffle and Oak Marone on display. The door ranges are in harmony with natural colours as well as more vibrant tones. The basic principle: Via the various ranges all materials and price groups are covered. This results in an abundance of combinations for all budgets and tastes. Carefully matched to the new door ranges are Pocket Doors concealing the contents of tall units. Then there is the new Wall Panel System. Both will be on display in Birmingham. The elements break with the traditional approach to storage space design, aiming to bring cosiness and a living room character to the kitchen. The Wall Panel System can be customised in size and equipped with shelves, lighting, accessory rails and even a TV screen up to 15kg. There are around 100 decor variations available to match the panels to the kitchen. All 2016 innovations were first showcased at Nolte Küchen’s in-house fair in September 2015. kbb Birmingham has them on display in the UK for the first time, along with the successful Matt Lacquer Concept. The event is an excellent opportunity for existing and future partners to experience the versatile nolte range and acquaint themselves with the extensive services provided.
