The Web is Like a Box of Chocolate…

 

You Never Know What You’re Gonna Get!” – I love surfing the web and finding some really cool sites, on the other side of the world. Discovering companies and products that I would have never found any other way.

This time, I discover a really cool site, with very little information about the company (I’m guessing in Germany they don’t believe in web sites that have ‘About Us’ section…), but still I couldn’t skip this one – somewhere in Germany, near the boarder with Luxemburg, is this company that seems to be a custom wood shop (they also have an office across the boarder in Luxemburg). The name is Unikat.

If you are thinking of a contemporary kitchen remodeling and are looking for inspiration, this just may be the web site you’ve been searching for. Obviously, the cabinets alone will just not give you these wonderful designs – the designers and architects that are responsible for these wonderful creations, have combined the contemporary cabinetry with the right contemporary appliances, contemporary kitchen faucets and sinks, to create the perfect picture contemporary kitchens.

But they don’t just do kitchens – lots of contemporary custom cabinets for various uses – other then contemporary kitchen cabinets, (with really great contemporary concrete kitchen countertop) they also feature contemporary bath design, contemporary commercial woodwork and even contemporary furniture pieces. All the spaces are very contemporary interior design settings and just simply some of the coolest contemporary designs I’ve seen recently. Did I mention these contemporary designs?

    Perdón por no escribir en inglés.
    Como diseñador industrial, cuando veo este tipo de diseños pienso, alguno de los diseñadores analizó las dimensiones del 90 % de las casas? algún diseñador analizó el poder adquisitivo del 90 % de las personas?
