Partner Event: Fisher & Paykel introduce the designer of slide-in french door refrigerator at an exclusive Parnell, Auckland event – August 2015.
The next generation in refrigeration was unveiled in Auckland by Fisher & Paykel’s general manager of design Mark Elmore and chief designer Mark Haydon.
Hosted at the beautiful IMO showroom, an audience of architects, designers and specifiers descended on the showroom for cocktails and canapes, and, of course, a first-hand look at the latest iteration in kitchen appliances.
Conceived from direct industry feedback, the slide-in refrigerator series has been designed to provide seamless integration into kitchen environs.
“Through our work with designers and architects, it had become apparent that there were few refrigeration platforms that make specification easier,” said Elmore. “Offering a flush fit, custom panelling and handle choices and preserving uninterrupted cabinetry lines, our slide-in models are well suited to contemporary kitchen design.”
Through the utilisation of heavy-duty, in-line hinges coupled with adjustable doors, the slide-in series requires no more than a 4mm-gap between the fridge and adjoining cabinetry. Not only does this create a harmonious aesthetic, it means that designers are able to maximise useable space within even the smallest of footprints.
