The name berbel stands for innovation, creativity and outstanding design. The berbel Plaza is the central venue for showcasing berbel’s great expertise, also in 2021, and visitors of area30 are bound to be impressed. The spacious interior of the booth is lined with meticulously planned kitchen installations, with the popular berbel Academy at the heart of the booth. berbel extraction systems take centre stage in four individually designed kitchen cubicles. Understated or extroverted, assimilated or assertive, traditional or modern: berbel has a solution to match any kitchen and any atmosphere.Muted colours and natural materials: technology and matt glass elements form a striking contrast in this ensemble. The new trough fan Downline Infinity that is also available with intuitively operated rotary knobs is integrated into the island with its knotty oak fronts. Cooking enthusiasts will get their money’s worth with this professional-quality equipment. The Skyline Edge in a new matt black design floats above berbel’s new high-performance panorama induction hob that is 900 x 400 mm big. The extraction hood is the latest addition to the berbel Black Edition and available in a width of 95 or 115 cm. All functions of the island hood with lift function can be controlled via a slider on the hob’s control panel. Integrated hood control is among the standard features of the panorama hob. Matt glass elements are a part of the fronts of the wall-mounted kitchen cabinets, too. The headroom hood Ergoline 2 that is also presented in the matt black version of the Black Edition blends seamlessly with the kitchen’s design. However, the classic stainless steel or glossy black versions of the multi-award-winning headroom hood that is extremely flexible, do not fail to impress either. The island with its marble-look ceramic fronts to the left of the berbel Academy, forms a striking contrast to the understated black fir wood fronts of the wall-mounted kitchen cabinets. The Downline models have been updated. Their various impressive new features include special printing that allows for virtually noiseless gliding of the cookware, improved induction technology and four equally sized cooking zones. The new panorama hob with integrated control and intuitive operation is compatible with all of berbel’s wall-mounted, headroom and island hoods. berbel’s iconic models Smartline and Glassline 2 are presented as wall-mounted solutions that look striking in this kitchen setup. The Academy area and the technology exhibition were designed more openly this year, offering a clear overview of the planning options and the different versions of the Downline family. The Skyline Frame on the right-hand side of the Academy with its honey- yellow light flow is a harmonious match for the wooden elements of this contemporary kitchen installation in oak and black. This Skyline model can also be controlled via the panorama induction hob. The built- in hoods Firstline, Firstline Unseen and Glassline that are integrated into the dark wall units, alongside the Downline Performance, are great examples of understated, seamlessly blended extraction systems. The spacious kitchen with its free-standing kitchen island has an urban and contemporary look. The Formline headroom hood in stainless steel or black is the perfect purist solution. It is one of berbel’s classics and it represents the manufacturer’s key attributes: top quality, outstanding design, as well as a high degree of user-friendliness and functionality. The new Downline Infinity with its generous dimensions of 900 x 550 mm offers maximum flexibility in cooking, even when using large items of cookware. Tech-savvy cooks benefit from a range of functions available in the sub-menus, as well as convenient extra features that make cooking a thoroughly enjoyable experience.
