Gone are the days when kitchens had dedicated rooms which were only used for daily chores like cooking and washing. With densification of housing and the on-going migration into urban centres the concept of micro-living as a trend is now gaining importance among city dwellers. Separating walls disappear, living spaces merge. These spaces flow into each other and therefore integrating family and living space with kitchens remains a very popular design option especially in upcoming cities.
An open kitchen layout comes with multiple advantages. It transforms your kitchen into the pulsating hub of your home enabling easy conversations between your guests and you as you cook and prepare dishes. It also adds a sense of volume to your kitchen. With this layout the kitchen and its cabinetry need to not only look immaculate but should also carry an individualistic appeal which blurs the lines of distinction between your living spaces. Hafele presents Profin – a new comprehensive range of state-of-the-art Aluminium Profiles that helps you achieve all this and much more. The range consists of four different categories of profiles – Gola Profiles, Stack Modular Shelving, Rail Door Profiles and Strike Shelving System. These categories exploit an individual’s sense of sophistication by proposing exciting design potentials and flawless integration.
The Profin Range of Aluminium Profiles and their accessories, across categories, are available in five contemporary finishes – Silver, Graphite, Gold, Rose Gold and Dark Bronze. Whether you opt for a dark kitchen or follow the recent trend of adapting metallic hues, our versatile range of profiles blends in perfectly with all colour schemes. When used in contrast, they stand out like jewelled embellishments that radiate across the kitchen.

Stack Modular Shelving:
A new design concept of open shelving / cabinet systems is emerging. More and more enclosed storage areas in the kitchen seem to be fading into this new design concept. The open spaces are increasingly being used as platforms to showcase kitchenware, curated statement pieces of art or accessories.
Hafele presents its Profin Range of Stack Modular Shelving Profiles that shapes your entire furniture aesthetics while silently delivering strength, stability and function to the units. These profiles and their accessories enable construction of open shelves with glass or wood and emanate elegance with their sleek and faultless built and finish.
Rail Door Profiles:
Overhead cabinets and tall units are a must in any kitchen, especially in an open kitchen. These systems optimally utilize spaces available within kitchens and can effectively store bulk quantities of food (non-refrigerated) and other kitchen items in an organized way. To impart a similar grace to these systems as your handle-less furniture and open shelving units, Hafele brings to you its Profin Range of Rail Door Profiles. These profiles meander naturally forming innate grooves for the handles and border the glass to perfection thereby crafting timeless designs that never run out of fashion.
Strike Shelving System:
What’s on the inside is as important as what lies on the outside. Hafele introduces its Profin Range of Strike Aluminium Profiles for shelves inside cabinets and tall units. These profiles are a brilliant way to complete the look of your interiors and add ambience, functionality and style to your furniture. The front profile, designed with modularity in concept, includes a groove to include LED strip lights which help illuminate the insides of the cabinet with indicative and directional lighting. These lights can be combined with drivers and sensors so that every time the shutter opens, the lights inside switches on.
