Award-winning appliance at Living Kitchen
ABK-InnoVent's i-Cooking concept has been awarded one in a series of Interior Innovation awards and will be displayed on the award-winners' platform at this year's Living Kitchen in Germany from January 18-23.
The i-Cooking range of worktops include both gas and induction hobs, or burners, and are suitable for all types of worktops, including stone and glass. The company claims that as only small cuts are produced in the steel in order to fit the hobs, less waste is produced than when other similar work surfaces are created. Older versions of the i-Cooking range are available throughout the European market and begin retailing for upwards of €1,495.
The Interior Innovation awards were chosen by an independent jury of design professionals working in collaboration with the organizers at Living Kitchen. The full list of honorees is not yet available and will be revealed at the awards on the evening of January 17, the night before the IMM Cologne/Living Kitchen trade shows begin.
Other innovative kitchen appliances from big industry names such as Bosch, Electrolux and Miele will also be on display at Living Kitchen. Electrolux is expected to introduce its new interactive range of cooking appliances, which inform the chef of the food's progress, and Bosch is predicted to launch a new induction hob known a FlexInduction, which gives keen chefs more control over their cookers.
2011 marks the first year of Living Kitchen; organizers expect to continue holding the exhibition once every two years. The exhibition runs concurrently to, and in conjunction with, with IMM Cologne. IMM Cologne showcases the latest and most innovative household designs and attracts around 100,000 visitors per-year; its 28th edition will run from January 18-23.
