A new year, a new era, a new stand concept, designed by the kräling_lübke studio and stylist Irina Graewe: "We concentrate on the individual piece of furniture and its multifarious uses; our aim is not to furnish, but to inspire." The eye-catcher in the entrance area (Pit 1) is an offset, floating cabinet configuration of the new cube play, beneath which stands an elongated lowboard (cube fine) with a new horizontal cabinet attachment and inner dividers in leather. "With a total of four cube variants, unconventional, playful as well as classic configurations or individual pieces of furniture can be created," says Managing Partner Leo Lübke.
The next stop (Pit 2) presents cube play as a symmetrical, slender mural relief with a TV panel. Steel metallic (one of the new lacquer colours) combined with snow-white gives it a somewhat masculine emphasis. To its rear, the classic wardrobe combination S07/40S appears surprisingly fresh, homely and comfortable (Pit 3). A soft shell tone, illuminated shelves, shoe pull-outs and a leather interior have been chosen, and the 40S element for favourite accessories has glass doors. An attractive contrast is created by the upholstered bed jalis, whose basic shape is reminiscent of a folded cushion, flanked by two cube change cabinets. "change is the variant that can be positioned individually, placed alongside each other or regrouped," explains Peter Kräling.
The manufacturer's strengths are also revealed once again by the walk-in wardrobe systems (Pits 3+7). To create a slimmer variant the room divider system sipario has been combined with S07 wall panels which sparkle in the accent colour bronze. The shelves and cabinets are lacquered in crystal white. A further stop presents three individual models of cube change – striking in gold, bronze and nickel, and 112.5 cm high (as the successor of duo plus). Added to this is a stylish wardrobe solution: 40S in a white/shell combination has slender, divided fronts and a new interior arrangement.
Applied librarian science? interlübke presents the design classic studimo as a mirror image (Pit 4): one of the two generous variants in white, with discreetly designed rear panels in a natural tone. Its counterpart comes in a monochromatic look, with a black ladder as the icing on the cake.
Some like it minimalistic: Pit 5 shows a living-room configuration comprising cube play and cube fine which dispenses with media consumption. Symmetrical arrangements render the spatial effect unobtrusive, and accents within the white areas are created for individual elements with powder tones. Behind this, a contemporary bedroom is shown whose centrepiece is a nocto plus bed with cube change cabinets. Facing this, a snow-white S07 gliding door wardrobe gleams with an anthracite-coloured interior. Like the system furniture 40S and all cube variants, this model can also be fitted with leather interior dividers.
Pit 6 is reserved for bookless, the pioneering gallery system for living. Two sides, one coin: the wall-mounted white configuration includes a complete, digital media integration. The ceiling-high solution is presented as a movable room divider in a dark silhouette. Next to this waits a deluxe S07 walk-in wardrobe with a cosy interior design in shell (Pit 7). The concept shown here presents an overview of our new, programme-embracing interior compartment arrangements for wardrobes and cabinets. The size of the undulating leather inserts can be altered individually to fit the utensils to be accommodated. A malo bed with an upholstered leather headboard and two elegant cube fine cabinets complete the room.
Pit 8 invites visitors to design their planned home office in a more casual, open and playful manner (cube play). A small monument has been erected to celebrate the anniversary "ten years of cube": cube gap (the new name for the gap-oriented classic cube) appears here in the new metallic tone steel. Anyone with a mind to do so may well be reminded of a safe by interlübke's best-seller programme. The transition to Pit 9 is provided by a generous 40S wardrobe solution in a lacquer-wood combination.
Shortly before arriving at the bistro, guests come upon the last pit stop (9) with a new-generation "living wall" for which a filigree, wall-mounted S07 panel system including media integration has been combined with a slim wardrobe. Opposite this, light is thrown on the two new cube variants change and play : not only by the colour combination white and curry, but also by fine, peripheral LED lights which make the furniture corpus appear to hover.
And so our new products approach the finish line together with the latest, consistently coordinated furniture programmes. interlübke stays essential in 2013 – for living!
