As a sign of recognition for outstanding consumer orientation, the LifeCare initiative has awarded Beckermann the prestigious consumer prize in the criteria: functionality, innovation, product benefit, design, and ergonomics. Connect2020+ is thus regarded as one of the most popular innovations in the world of kitchens.
Connect 2020+ is not only a highly versatile kitchen concept, but also a perfect symbiosis of function and design. It is also extremely flexible, multifunctional, lightweight, and easy to plan and takes the kitchen one step further – creating a multi-room design concept for every kind of home and lifestyle.
With the Connect 2020+ kitchen concept, three innovative modules are in pole position:
1. The Connect trolley. This looks just as good in an open-plan kitchen as it does when rolled up to the bed as a breakfast trolley. Whenever the family is gathered around the TV with friends and relatives, it takes on the role of a butler for drinks and snacks. On cosy barbecue evenings, it serves as a mini outdoor kitchen. Its many uses can even extend into the office and children’s room.
2. When it comes to connecting different living spaces in a harmonious way, the new Connect pass-through is the ideal solution. It ensures that everything moves more swiftly and via the shortest route.
3. Another innovation is called Open Style. Open Style acts as a flexible room divider. Even a micro-apartment can be divided up so intelligently that cooking, eating, living, sleeping and home office areas are incorporated in a single room, but are separated from one another by shelving systems with and without privacy screens. Open Style also provides additional storage space, as the shelf units allow a considerable amount of items to be stored on their shelves and hooks. The room divider can even act as a splash guard for the hob.
The multi-room kitchen concept impresses with its attractive, modern design and the high quality workmanship and high functional value that you expect from Beckermann Küchen. Customised products are possible on request, as are individual elements in batch size 1 – perfectly tailored to every customer requirement, no matter how unusual, for every living space solution and room size.
