Materials Combination Series #2 – Hacker Classic
Our last blog highlighted the mastery of bulthaup b1, seamlessly working in collaboration with a variety of classic Cameron Interiors textures and hand-picked design choices. In this blog, however, we turn to another German Master, Häcker who have made kitchen design an art form. Here we have chosen their Classic collection in a Laser Soft Black, refined and elegant with a design collaboration of finishes that soften the black with neutral concrete tones and mixes in dark timber for added warmth and texture.
Capturing that soft timber, the finishes have been chosen in a Mocha Vintage Oak Veneer, while the door and cupboard handles are perfection from Dowsing & Reynolds, selecting the Skyscraper and Hive designs respectively in matt black.
Part of Caesarstone’s industrialised Metropolitan Collection, Black Tempal, is a black quartz effect worktop that, while industrialised in tone, also offers a depth of warmth from the reflective white highlights across the counter surface.
One of our favourite new colour ways from inspirational kitchen designers, Silgranit, brings even greater depth of tone with their Blanco sink in black. The richness of the black palette makes a subtle, elegant and understated statement against its complimentary partners in this exceptional kitchen. A boiling water tap and a mixer tap are combined in Fusion (again,matt black) courtesy of design leaders Quooker.
Kitchen appliances are provided by both Brora and Miele. The Miele VitroLine oven is perfection in Obsidian Black, blending seamlessly into this stunning space, while the Bora Classic Surface Induction Hob in All Black provides large surface cooking zones while maintaining classic minimalism.
German furniture manufacturer KFF provide the final texture and tone. Their ARVO sled-base tool is a standout in rawhide black, making a sophisticated statement while offering timeless quality and comfort. Equally, the KFF Lhasa dining chair in rawhide snow, harmonises perfectly while providing a warming contrast to the more industrialised palette in this beautifully contemporary combination.
