INTERZUM 2019

Breathtakingly original ideas for units and shelf systems

Furniture choices influence the quality and functionality of a space, and visitors to Swiss furniture and fitting manufacturer peka’s stand at Interzum will find out how. peka’s sleek, stylish unit and shelf systems lend kitchens, living areas, bedrooms and offices a touch of understated elegance, as well as offering breathtakingly original ways to use the space more effectively than ever before.

Futurologist Oona Horx-Strathern has said that the real future will be about the coming together of design, technology, materials and human relationships. peka’s latest storage solutions are the perfect embodiment of this. They provide practical responses to the little niggles we encounter in our homes and ensure that there is always plenty of organised, accessible storage space, no matter how small a room. The company’s Interzum stand features an array of novel ideas that showcase the flexibility of peka’s systems and their adaptability to any application and any place.

peka’s stand: back to basics

With its stripped-back design, peka’s stand is every bit as simple and inventive as its products. Upon approaching the stand, visitors see a collection of stark black cubes silhouetted against a backlit fabric wall. The surprises only really start when the cubes begin to unfold: with just one gentle touch, the unit doors open, revealing the astounding variety of pull-out systems offered by peka. The stand’s dark backdrop really makes the anthracite, white, wooden and coloured fittings pop, while the colours of the unit interiors and systems have been selected carefully for an attractive, harmonious effect.

The Pleno Plus larder unit system: storage space galore!

The larder unit is one of the most frequently used units in almost every kitchen. With its inventive designs and ingenious innovations, peka has truly made this kitchen essential its own. peka’s entire range of larder unit solutions will be on display for the first time ever this year, as Pleno Plus is making its Interzum debut. Pleno Plus’s entire contents slide out into view with just a gentle tug. The upper shelves are even split in two for optimum visibility, like in a fridge. One quick glance allows users to see everything inside their unit, and one easy step is all it takes for them to reach the groceries or dishes they need.

The Trio larder unit system: for price-conscious customers

Trio is peka’s efficient storage solution for price-conscious customers. When the unit door is opened, the top part of the storage area splits into shallow fixed shelves and three door shelves, giving users an excellent overview of all their groceries and eliminating the need to rummage around in the back of the unit. The two Extendo shelves in the bottom part of the unit can be pulled out for exceptionally easy access to heavy items like pots.

Click Stop: from pull-out shelf to work surface!

Click Stop temporarily transforms pull-out shelves into fixed work surfaces. One simple idea, so many practical applications: Click Stop could be used to create a laundry folding area in the utility room, handily store a coffee machine in a corner or kitchen appliances in a larder unit, or produce a home office workspace from a sliding-door unit. The shelf locks in place automatically when it is extended out of the unit and unlocks with a gentle pull.

Pecasa shelf system in the spotlight

A dark space – a wall full of shelves. Light beams play over the smart furniture, revealing a variety of applications from hallway to dressing room to home office. Individual shelf components connect or share situations. The interplay of sounds, objects, movements and light brings the shelving to life, transforming the space in surprising ways and showing off Pecasa's modularity and customisable materials to their full effect.

On its stand at Designers’ Saturday, peka is showcasing the flexibility and modularity of its Pecasa shelf system using a 4.50 m wall that has been kitted out with Pecasa shelves over its entire height. 

Light beams are used to highlight the system's many and varied applications, which are illustrated with light effects and animations. For instance, the shelf system has a build-in cable duct that allows easy integration of lighting, TVs, tablets or other devices.

The wall backdrop may show a living room, dressing room, home office, hallway or child's room, depending on the light effects employed at the time. Each lighting concept tells a different story. The objects on the shelves or the sounds they hear tell visitors which use case is being explored at any given time and help to immerse them in the experience. This innovative display shows that one shelf can suit a variety of situations, since the individual shelves remain the same across use cases and link one application to another.

Visitors to peka's stand are plunged into a dark space, where light animations bring the Pecasa shelf system to life and highlight the endless possibilities it offers.

As visitors leave the stand, they encounter a silhouetted black unit. Upon opening its doors, they reveal the unit's attractively lit interior the sheer variety of pull-out systems offered by peka is sure to astound any visitor who opens the unit doors the stand's dark backdrop really makes the anthracite, white, wooden and coloured fittings pop, while the unit interiors have been selected carefully to complement the colours and materials used.

Pleno Plus –View a unit's entire contents

A gentle tug is all it takes to open the Pleno Plus larder unit's door and bring all the shelves – even the top one – out at the same time for an unbeatable overview of the unit's entire contents. Pleno Plus's shelves slide out so smoothly and gently that even a child could control them... although of course, he or she would need to grow a bit to be able to reach the top shelves!

Larger packets and grocery items can be stored on the higher shelves of the pull-out, pots and tableware on the lower shelves, and spices and jam jars in the door shelves.
