Häfele Free flap fittings: World Premiere
In the flap fittings range, a completely new product makes its world premier at Interzum 2019. This range is positioned to offer innovative, extremely small, and at the same time extremely powerful flap fitting. With its compact design, it creates more storage space in furniture than any other popular models in its class.
In contrast to hinged doors, the fittings of the Free family enable more optical and technical design options. Whether a flap is lifted, folded, pivoted or folded – this ensures ease of use and aesthetics. A compact design creates more storage space in the furniture.
Even heavy flaps up to 15 kg can be moved with a minimum amount to effort, resulting in soft opening and closing. Intelligent kinematics and an optimized motion geometry of the fitting parts make slimmer and more restrained shapes possible – and therefore more modern, reduced design solutions. Plugs and pre-mounted Euro screws make it possible to install the fitting with one hand.
Included in the many introductions at Interzum 2019 include the premiere for the H1910 “Textile” furniture handle (above), another Red Dot Design Award winner by Häfele. It marks the fusion of kitchen and living areas in the handle segment.
In addition, Häfele is involved as the initiator of a workshop of the future with young and creative people from a wide range of disciplines. In the special area in Interzum 2019, these young people will present their view on digital living of the future.
