Concrete Kitchen is designed by the German company Leicht. Concrete, the classic material of discerning architecture, is now increasingly being used indoors. Concrete surfaces have a characteristic expression that is always entirely unique. Qualities that make this timeless material so precious for the design of individual kitchens.

Today this modern building materials increasingly found within the interior of sophisticated, minimalist design, family houses. Now, for the first time, Leicht is using this extremely versatile material, held in high esteem by architects world-wide, for kitchen fronts.

The material concrete stands for modernity, for timeless aesthetics and a strong expressive power.

Concrete surfaces always have a distinctive appearance. The kitchen fronts of the new concrete have a genuine, hand-applied concrete surface. Leicht uses the special material properties and the appearance of the concrete material to its advantage, so as to bring prestigious kitchen concepts from modern to minimalist to life. Naturally, the possibilities to meet customers’ wishes regarding dimensions and form, are also available with the CONCRETE kitchen. Every kitchen front, every design element is hand made to the desired dimensions.

The manufacture of a concrete front demands much know-how and craftsman’s skill. Fine concrete is manually applied with aspatula to a lacquered MDF – panel. This produces an authentic, unique surface appearance with subtly changing spatula textures. Differently refracted light further brings the front to life. A matt lacquer seal makes the front very durable and gives it a silky feel.
