Say hello to the Kitchen of the Future. A kitchen system that is so exquisite, it is compared to a fine German automobile, given the technical precision of its parts, fit and finish. A kitchen that is ergonomically-built to fit seamlessly with an individual's unique design, organizational and specified cooking needs. They are the advanced, kitchen systems of ALNO -- one of Europe's leading kitchen design innovators, which has been practicing their art since 1927.
At the pulse of modern design, the German-based ALNO understands that an ideal kitchen system is all about using creative, individual and unusual design alternatives, in order to create the most efficient use of space. Working around the typical work triangle of the sink, fridge and oven, ALNO crafts kitchen cabinet systems that match the size and layout of a kitchen. Then, the homeowner gets to choose between limitless fittings for endless organization, an infinite color palette and little details, like whether they'd like handles or knobs or they'd prefer their cabinet doors to automatically open when gently tapped. In addition, the 2008 collection features modern, vibrantly-colored shelves, which seamlessly merge the kitchen with the home's living areas and extra wide drawers and extra high wall units to offer ideal storage solutions, without sacrificing style.
Sleek, streamlined, and above all functional, ALNO kitchen cabinet systems bring high-art to the home's most prominent living space. Utilizing wood, glass, gloss and colors, their 2008 collection elevates the working kitchen to a whole new level: "The Kitchen, Perfected."
