'Go Eco' with new coffee-inspired wood colours by Rotpunkt
Rotpunkt, award-winning designer and manufacturer of quality German kitchen furniture, has responded to the growing trend for eco-friendly interior design with the launch of two coffee-inspired wood colours:
* Euca Caramel - a golden wood effect with smooth structure and highly visual contours
* Euca Mocca - a rich, dark wood effect with distinct vertical pattern and even texture
"The construction of your kitchen furniture is a great way to be more environmentally aware, as different materials can impact not only how your kitchen looks, but also its weight, cost and carbon footprint" says Matt Philips, head of UK operations, Rotpunkt.
"We use 37% less timber across all of our kitchens; without compromising on quality and stability. Conserving more of our natural forests, BioBoard by Rotpunkt is the sustainable, green and environmentally friendly alternative to traditional chip boards. The weight is reduced by 30% by using corn and other yearly plants and both the stability and quality of the manufacturing process are maintained, making transport and installation even easier.
"So how do you achieve the latest look in your kitchen whilst still being eco-friendly? Put simply, finishes! Premium door solutions are making it easy to create super-realistic natural effect kitchen schemes that replicate genuine raw materials and our new Euca colours will help you achieve a distinct wood coloured kitchen without the extra load or price tag!"
Now available in BlackLine, the new Euca Caramel and Euca Mocca colours can be designed with circumferential zero-joint edging in ever-popular black. Outlining and framing each piece of Caramel or Mocca coloured furniture for the height of definition, these new coffee brown colours demonstrate how wood can be modernised and used to enrich any contemporary kitchen concept.
Rotpunkt has also introduced a range of new 20mm matt black metal frame doors with Crystal Glass, as pictured. Featuring a wider, more dominant 50mm black frame upon the glass means the addition of this heavyset display unit ensures a practical use of space with refined level of eco furniture design.
"Innovative door finishes are monopolising the kitchen furniture market this 2019 and our sustainable furniture options are committed to a positive environmental impact, so you benefit from the latest kitchen designs with eco-innovative attributes," says Matt.
