Five ideas for a more flexible kitchen
Ergonomically, aesthetically and technologically, the new Series 11 DishDrawer™ Dishwasher will be the best – and most used – drawer in your kitchen. Why? The ergonomic design allows you to make more of your space.
We live life out of Drawers
In the modern kitchen, we live out of drawers. That simple insight that drawers offer a better, more ergonomic, more organised and accessible experience than cupboards – informed the design of the DishDrawer™ Dishwasher.
This insight would go on to revolutionise the way people do dishes by enhancing the ergonomic
space between appliance, user and storage. Every DishDrawer™ Dishwasher glides smoothly
meet you, presenting dishes for easy loading and unloading, and greatly diminishing the need to
bend and stoop. Independently powered and self-contained, DishDrawer™ Dishwashers come in
range of formats:
traditional double drawer modules, but also single drawer options
one deep enough for larger dinnerware) that can be configured and distributed anywhere in the
kitchen for complete design freedom.
A better use of space
While a Double DishDrawer™ Dishwasher can often
fill the hole when
old dishwasher, with new kitchen layouts, single drawers can offer even more design
freedom. A single drawer DishDrawer™ Dishwasher can be distributed to wherever
needed, most accessible and most useful in the kitchen. In contemporary kitchen
design, this is often either side of a sink or multiple DishDrawer™
distributed across the main kitchen, scullery and bar.
The evolving spatial arrangements of our homes and apartments are continually finding new roles for the DishDrawer™ Dishwasher. They're being introduced into living spaces, home offices, garages, games and media rooms. In larger homes, they're also popping up in self-contained suites.
Some of the hallmarks of the best contemporary kitchens today include freestanding islands, cabinetry that extends flawlessly from floor to ceiling, subtly detailed with shadow lines and carefully crafted negative details, and wall-hung cabinets that cantilever into space – all crafted in ways that dissolve the kitchen with the surrounding spaces.
Appliance integration is a way to holistically extend the care, craft and vision of a design throughout a space in its entirety. To reduce visual clutter by concealing working areas, to perfectly match hardware, materiality and textures, and unify aesthetic qualities for a fully considered result.
The Series 11 DishDrawer™ Dishwasher supports all these outcomes. With intuitive controls located inside the appliance, the entire front panel is ready for seamless integration. No lights, no buttons, no clash of materials – just your material and hardware choices and a flawless finish.
Kitchen as furniture
Over time, the kitchen has become more refined and seamless. We've designed the Series 11 DishDrawer™ Dishwasher as a tool to help create highly crafted and inventive kitchen architecture – the kinds of designs that can't be achieved with a drop-door dishwasher.
The DishDrawer™ Dishwasher enables, for example, a
floating installation; that is,
integrated in a freestanding island or wall-hung cabinets without a visible floor connection or
toe-kick. The ability to create a void below cabinetry changes the perception of the space.
Cabinetry can be interpreted as console or credenza; kitchen space becomes living space. A
similar effect can be achieved by playing with toe-kick height and depth, changing the reading
of space and creating a more furniture-like aesthetic.
This level of craft and appreciation of materiality is carried through to the polished stainless steel tub interior of this new Series 11 DishDrawer™ Dishwasher.
Commitment to Micro Moments
We seek to design
peace into our products by focusing on the quality of every
audible, tactile and visual
micro moment. “We're conscious of every
We design in sound as well as in metal. For years, we've been trying to design
quietest appliances – and not just in wash mode. Who wants to hear the rattle
cutlery drawer, the clash of plates, a drawer slamming shut?,” says Mark Elmore,
Executive Vice President of Design and Brand.
Soft-closing Series 11 DishDrawer™ Dishwasher drawers reduce the crash and bang of plates
cutlery time and time again. Pitch-adjustable racks convey
sureness of fit and security of hold.
And the delightfully intuitive
knock to pause control is a haptic product interaction
akin to the intuitive gestures we use on phones and tablets than it is to traditional dishwasher
