The Y kitchen: A revolution – for a new generation

Complex furnishing issues demand simple answers, carefully considered in every last detail. The new Y kitchen is a small revolution and the logical development of the classic island solution. Whether in a small town apartment or generously proportioned house - the design of the Y kitchen turns your kitchen into a central communication platform.
design by Michael Hilgers
The qualified cabinet maker and architect Michael Hilgers is a design pioneer. In his works developed for renowned manufacturers, he always combines ingenuity with a minimalist design. Hilgers' innovative and yet strikingly simple furniture solutions are perfect examples of his philosophy of examining traditional production categories for today's living and working environments and reinventing these in pragmatic ways and means. The (multi)functional, flexible and space-saving pioneering products developed in his Berlin studio have been awarded several times with the Interior Innovation Award amongst others.
