Tocco - Concrete Kitchen
Concrete, the classic material of discerning architecture, is now increasingly being used indoors. Concrete surfaces have a characteristic expression that are always entirely unique. Qualities that make this timeless material so precious for the design of individual kitchens.
Concrete is known as the “marble of the modern era”. Today this modern building material is increasingly found within the interiors of sophisticated, minimal designed, family houses. Now, for the first time, LEICHT is using this extremely versatile material, held in high esteem by architects world-wide, for kitchen fronts. This opens new perspectives for a kitchen design, oriented towards architecture inspired by the Bauhaus movement, based on an internationally valid design language. Concrete stands for modernity, for timeless aesthetics and a strong expressive power, exactly the qualities that characterise LEICHT. Together, material and brand image provide a convincing and tangible unit for the end customer oriented, towards architecture and design.
The manufacture of a CONCRETE front demands much know-how and craftsman’s skill. Fine concrete is manually applied with a spatula to a lacquered MDF -panel. This produces an authentic, unique surface appearance with subtly changing spatula textures. Differently refracted light further brings the front to life. A matt lacquer seal makes the front very durable and gives it a silky feel. Three iridescent colours contribute to the wide design range in the LEICHT Collection 2015. There is a choice of a light (manhattan), a darker (brasilia) and a rusty tinted grey (le havre). Every kitchen front, every design element is hand made to the desired dimensions.
