Once again this year, there was no shortage of innovations and surprises at the stand of Swiss manufacturer peka: a brand-new family of base unit pull-outs, a larder unit pull-out offering an unbeatable overview and use of space, a drawer that can be opened from both sides and, most notably, a new style of shelf – Liro – that gives kitchen manufacturers maximum design freedom while blending seamlessly with the materials used elsewhere in the kitchen.
This Swiss company is truly an innovation powerhouse, developing a constant stream of new, top-quality products. We take a trip into the surprising worlds behind the unit front.

Pinello product family

The contents of a unit are quite simply easier to access in pull-outs than they are on fixed shelves. That's why peka has just developed a whole new family of base unit pull-outs. It's called Pinello and it offers something for everyone. As well as the double-decker pull-outs for unit widths of 200 and 300 mm, there's a pull-out spice rack for 150-mm units, an extending towel rail, and pull-outs for baking trays and bread.
All the models impress with their stable and smooth sliding properties and soft, silent closing. A pull-out can be personalised with various add-ons. The extra shelf can be positioned anywhere, enabling up to four levels of storage and ensuring maximum use of the available space. With magnetic dividers or a bottle rack, the shelf space can be split up to suit the user's needs. Pinello also provides a range of design options: the pull-outs are available in white, silver and anthracite and can be customised with rails made of light oak or a material of the customer's choice.

Pleno Maxi

Pleno has always offered impressively easy access to the entire unit contents, no matter how high or how far back they are. It's all thanks to the special way the system works: when the door is opened, all the shelves glide out together so that all the unit's contents are displayed. In the Plus version, the upper shelves are also split between the door and the cabinet, meaning that even smaller users can reach any item stored in the unit quickly and comfortably.

Pleno Maxi too is available in Standard and Plus versions. While both obviously retain all the popular Pleno features, they also boast extra-large shelves that are wider and deeper than before, as well as making better use of the unit height. Last but not least, Pleno Maxi is now attached to only one of the side walls, and the same mechanism can be used whether it is mounted on the right or the left. This means that for the first time Pleno can be used to create a double unit without the need for a partition.

«Riverso» drawer system

A drawer that can be pulled out on both sides means that the same unit can be accessed from two different sides. This offers countless possibilities to use space in new ways and make day-to-day processes more efficient. Riverso is perfect for display units in showrooms, for instance, as it means that two salespeople can access the same items at the same time. Simplifying product flows is also beneficial in medical settings such as pharmacies, hospitals and laboratories, where rooms and spaces need to be divided up, substantial distances are involved, and complex access procedures may be in force.

Unlike conventional systems with drawers that open from both sides, Riverso's overlay fronts mean that the front of the closed side is not pulled through the unit when the drawer is opened from the opposite side.

The fact that Riverso consists of just two pairs of runners, a coupling and front brackets on both sides means that the drawers can be manufactured to the customer's individual requirements, with unit depths ranging from 530 to 900 mm and unit widths from 550 to 915 mm. Riverso is compatible with any unit design and any front material.

Liro design line

Liro is the new shelf line from peka. Its design offers scope for creative freedom.
Liro shelves fit with the customer's style as they can be combined with rails for a tailor-made look. Users can choose to pair the shelves with rails made of solid oak, which are the perfect complement to wooden front panels and warm colours, or, alternatively, they can opt for glass, compact laminates, aluminium, or another material. Without rails, Liro shelves ooze calm sophistication. Combined with inserted rails, they create an eye-catching effect as the unit door is opened.

Non-slip silicone mats

peka makes the shelves of its pull-outs from sheet steel without applying a non-slip coating. There are good reasons for this: having an even surface makes the shelves easy to clean, and they can be recycled as a single material at the end of their life. However, anyone wanting maximum stability will appreciate our non-slip mats, which are available separately.
peka's non-slip mats are made from food-safe silicone. The mats' high-quality material offers many advantages: it is pleasant to the touch, heat-resistant, easy to clean with water and sound-absorbing. It is also flexible, making the mats easy to fit.
With their simple, straight design, the silicone mats mirror the cool elegance of peka's shelves. Available in stylish oyster white and walnut grey, they complement all peka design lines both visually and functionally.
