A great new range of space-saving units has been launched, ideal for those having to live the cramped lifestyle of Piercy Conner's micro-flats (AJ 30.8.01).Actually, these compact kitchen units are quite innovative. Built in a variety of materials and finishes, the Quantum 2K range includes freestanding kitchen units built to maximise space efficiency while retaining a unique and stylish appearance.
They are made from aluminium extrusions simply fitted together with an Allen key for quick assembly.They can be configured to fit alcoves and return angles and each frame can be expanded to accommodate changing requirements or late variations.They are ideal for 'kitchenette'style commercial tea points as well as the residential market. Space-saving innovations include pull-out tables and cutlery drawers under wall units, and all have a connected backboard for ease of installation and relocation. There are a variety of coloured laminates, PVC trims and carcass to choose from.
Pictured is the Kitcase (£1,875), designed for what the manufacturer calls 'unusual requirements'. It could provide some creature comforts for staff at an exhibition or site office, and comprises a kitchen in a case. The entire unit is 1.27m wide x 1.04m high x 0.66m deep and contains hotplates, a sink unit, fridge (with freezer compartment) and 2kW water heater. The coffee maker and Thermos are included. Hobnobs are extra.
