Description Cooking is no longer just a necessity: it has long established itself as a way of switching off from the world or as something to enjoy together with friends and family. Steininger’s vision and mission is to constantly develop the kitchen as a place of rest and enjoyment – visually, technically, and functionally. FOLD, Martin Steininger’s latest creation, takes this mission to a new level. The eponymous folding technique transforms the kitchen block into an elegant sculpture, whose cubist tombac surface plays with light via its warm brass tone. The design is clear, purist, simple and highly functional. FOLD is a self-contained geometric body that rescinds its power, but not its presence. The novel thing about FOLD is its integrated high-tech »M.POD« work surface, which makes it possible to control many functions in a central and intuitive way. High-tech becomes an invisible kitchen helper and helps cooks to concentrate on what counts the most – the cooking.
