Modern today, still visionary tomorrow
As with the Bauhaus concept, next125 focuses on the essential: authentic materials and a timeless design combine to create effectively purist and functional kitchens.
The next125 design principles – Precision, elegance, creativity, reduction, functionality, emotion and technology
The stated objective: to combine a straightforward style with functionality.
"Art and technology – a new unity" is the title of a 1923 dissertation by the founder of the Bauhaus movement, Walter Gropius. In it, he justifies straightforward design characterized by clear objectivity. The stated objective: to combine a straightforward style with functionality. A philosophy reflected in next125 kitchens, in their unobtrusive elegance and thoughtfulness down to the smallest detail: thanks to the grid size and the front division, a visual unity is created – without neglecting functional requirements such as sufficient storage space.
As with the Bauhaus concept, next125 focuses on the essential. Despite all of the reductions, the kitchen design is always based on the joy of experimentation. From the next125 cube recess system through to the laminate front with a low-maintenance surface – the unique design thrives on simplification. Thanks to this, next125 has won many awards: the most recent being the coveted German Design Award 2018, awarded for the 87.5 mm carcase height.
Both in its architecture and in its industrial design, the Bauhaus design leads to timelessness. The best examples for an effectively reduced and functional design are the free-standing cooking table, the wall-mounted kitchen elements, the variable carcase heights, units with retractable doors and wall units with sliding doors. With their clean edges and reduced forms, next125 opens up a high degree of planning freedom and allows room for greater individuality. An individuality that with its elegance, function and aesthetics creates new age design classics. Classics that can be combined flexibly in accordance with individual needs and taste to create a uniquely personal unity of art and technology.
