LEICHT Introduces the New Valais Kitchen and Innovative Planning Concept “EVO”: An Expressive Genuine Wood Range with Very Fine Contours

Jan 10, 2017

The search for the elegantly simple in a fast-moving world is omnipresent – LEICHT’s Valais kitchen with its warm yet precise look is the perfect solution.

In conjunction with Valais and other LEICHT kitchens, the German engineered brand developed its new planning concept EVO. The transition from worktop to fronts is seamless: a virtually invisible worktop with its surrounding metal edge is finished flush with the cabinet fronts, giving the kitchen an exceedingly puristic quality.

The material mix makes this ensemble all the more exciting. Genuine wood with a horizontal relief meets velvety matt lacquer, the warm tone of the wood meets a cooler air of carbon grey – a skillful combination of contrasts, also striking in the new planning concept.

Precision in detail

As Germany’s market leader in high-end kitchens, one of LEICHT‘s most important concerns is to find a universal expression that outlasts trends. Detailed solutions are essential for the overall effect. In developing the seamless transition of slim worktop and delicate units within EVO, LEICHT has designed this kitchen concept to be both refined and practical. The overall consistency makes a harmonious impression.

“LEICHT defines styles and shows new ways of creating those styles with the innovative integrated program of unit fronts and worktop,” says Stefan Waldenmaier, CEO and Chairman of the Board of LEICHT, of the new kitchen inspirations. “Together with the emotionally appealing materials, the new planning concept EVO gives LEICHT kitchens an incomparably elegant and homely quality.”

Sophisticated interior design with large-size wall panels

With Valais, LEICHT is offering large-size genuine wood panels for the very first time. These also feature an expressive relief structure. They were specially developed for wall covering and can be equipped with delicate shelves in carbon grey.

“To open up the kitchen even further into the living area, continuous wall coverings are of great importance, particularly with this range,“ says Waldenmaier of the new development.

The panels can, however, also be planned with other LEICHT ranges – this is a natural step from the kitchen to top-quality interior design and thus into the entire living area.

The longing for genuine values is becoming ever greater in our digitized world. In our personal environment, this is reflected in the search for the elegantly simple: people want to be surrounded by things which promote a sense of calm, clarity and concentration on what really matters.
