Instant steaming hot water from a standard kitchen tap

Over centuries, we have marvelled at how Italians have enhanced design and fashion leaving their cultural mark on the world. We love the passion, craftsmanship and heritage put into everything they do, and now they are the creative drivers behind InSinkErator’s premium range of tapware. Multi Rubinetto or Multitap.

The reasons we fall in love with Italian products is their passion and purpose and Multitap is a testament to this commitment. InSinkErator are proud to be able to now offer instant steaming hot water as a function of a standard kitchen tap mixer. Designed and manufactured in Italy this high quality tap brings contemporary style to new and existing kitchen spaces.

The Multitap 3N1 is supported by next generation Neotank. It features a compact design (310mm x 150mm) that is affixed to the cupboard wall conserving space usage. The 2.5L tank features a welded construction, eliminating seals to improve lifespan.  It also allows the consumer to heat only what they need while conserving energy for environmental stewardship.

To help introduce Multitap 3N1 to the Australian market place, InSinkErator have partnered with award-winning chef, restaurateur and much loved TV personality Mr Guy Grossi. “What I love is the convenience of the Multitap. Instant boiling water combined with the regular hot and cold water helps me keep cooking, with what I need always at my fingertips.” Says Mr Grossi.

3 Reasons to open up your space with a ceiling cassette rangehood

3 Reasons to open up your space with a ceiling cassette rangehood

Choosing the best rangehood for your kitchen layout is one of the most difficult, yet important. For kitchen interior designers and professionals alike, the decision of whether to make the rangehood a statement piece or have it concealed is one that is not easy. The silent rangehood specialists at Schweigen offer their recommendations of the benefits of ceiling cassettes:

  1. Integrated & Unique Design

A ceiling cassette rangehood consists of sleek, modern lines and allows for an aesthetic that is open, spacious and unburdened. This being stated it is also a talking point as it showcases its grand, unique stature. A rangehood such as the Schweigen IN.Silent INART 4M cassette boasts its magnificence with generous dimensions and a glamorous stainless steel ‘cloud’. On the other hand, designers looking for a more flexible option are able to choose a rangehood such as the Schweigen Silent Paradigma, which combines LED light and powerful extraction in one unit, available in several modular configurations.

  1. Effortless Technology

With the touch of a button from a remote, a cassette proves functional, effortless, and innovative. A trend to look for in a ceiling cassette, such as on the INART 4M, is the use of Perimeter Aspiration, which targets air extraction towards the perimeter of the cassette, creating a smaller and more intense extraction area. This rangehood takes cooking to the next level and is the ‘wow’ factor in any kitchen without interrupting the interior design and aesthetic.

  1. Powerful Extraction

A ceiling cassette is able to offer a truly powerful extraction despite its proximity to the actual cooking. Schweigen puts its food forward in this domain with their innovative, energy efficient, German-made Isodrive® motor, which works by pulling air outside, rather than pushing like conventional hoods. Any unwanted odours are removed, and external noise is absorbed by ambient sounds, allowing your kitchen to reclaim its rightful places as the hub of your home.

Planero offers storage space and optimum aesthetics

Planero offers storage space and optimum aesthetics

Achieving optimum functionality has been a top priority for Vauth-Sagel since its foundation. The company has strived for perfection in design for years. The results of this are products which give the furniture interiors a completely new feel with elegant details and convenient functions. Planero is the first shelf variant developed by the system manufacturer with a flat steel design, bringing high quality and high value to the spaces behind the front.

“Planero is a great way to showcase how dynamic we are becoming”, says Claus Sagel. Basket variants have been part of the company’s core competencies for decades; historically, they were made from bent wire. Planero, with its flat design, demonstrates Vauth-Sagel’s breadth of material expertise. It meets the highest design requirements and adds a variant to the company’s storage portfolio which responds to the customer’s desire for personal expression. With Planero, Vauth-Sagel is reaffirming its position as a driving force behind comfort systems with high design and quality standards. The powder-coated steel plate formed around an inlaid wooden shelf results in a flat design with invisible suspension points. Planero combines the highest design standards with a practical feel and hygiene. For optimal cleaning, the inserted floors can be easily removed. The design variant is available for almost all product groups, such as the tall cabinet VS TAL Larder, the new corner-unit solution, CORNERSTONE MAXX, and the VS COR Flex.
