Interchangeable elements and functional details allow the FloatingSpaces design system to seamlessly integrate the kitchen with the home’s living areas
(Feasterville, PA, December 14, 2012) — SieMatic, global manufacturer of premium kitchen cabinetry, was named a Best of Year 2012 winner by Interior Design magazine for its innovative SieMatic FloatingSpaces panel system. Hans Henkes, president and CEO of SieMatic Möbelwerke USA, accepted the prize for topping the kitchen cabinetry category at the new Goldman Sachs Group headquarters in Lower Manhattan on November 29, 2012. The company’s innovative FloatingSpaces was one of four finalists competing for the annual honor bestowed on trendsetters by the high profile magazine known for covering the latest in interior design.
FloatingSpaces, the new variable panel system by SieMatic, offers a multitude of design solutions that seamlessly blends the kitchen and living room into a uniform space. Matching panel shelves offer numerous possibilities to design unique elevations with a selection of colors and materials to create appealing accents. Such elements as ultra thin, 13-millimeter shelves create a fluid transition between rooms, which redefines traditional kitchen planning. “These exceptionally streamlined shelves are in keeping with our high standard of structural integrity, while bringing about a complete integration of the kitchen into the interior architecture of the home,” explains Henkes.
Interior designers and architects selected Best of Year Product Design finalists via online vote from 660 submissions. A jury of leading architects and designers determined the winners. Over 86,000 votes were tallied in this year’s competition.
