Subtle charm and restrained elegance
Kludi fittings in sophisticated matt black or stylish matt white go perfectly with purist interiors
Silk matt finishes are very much in vogue at the moment. The subtle charm of restrained finishes exudes a modern elegance that is proving popular today, whether this be the fine powdery effect of paint on a car, or matt elements in a kitchen or bathroom. Matt finishes on technical appliances and furniture also go hand-in-hand with the trend towards naturalness and a tangible warmth within interior designs. The fittings specialist Kludi (www.kludi.com) has taken heed of this trend with its fashion-forward matt black finish, which is available in its Smart Luxury series (Nova Fonte Puristic, Nova Fonte Pura, Bozz and Balance), as well as the Pure Function collection (Pure&Style). In spring 2023, selected bathroom series from the premium Sauerland-based brand will also be expanded with products such as the new single-lever mixer Nova Fonte Pura in stylish matt white.
Personal style in the bathroom
“While on-trend matt black can already be seen in many modern bath-rooms and cloakrooms – including those of designer hotels and ex-clusive hip venues – matt white creates greater creative scope in terms of interior design and allows you to express your personal style,” explains Arndt Papenfuß, Marketing Director at the long-established Menden-based firm. The style of your home and its furnishings determines the perfect choice of fitting from Kludi’s range, all of which correspond to the highest standards in terms of finish. Matt white is remarkably pure, and its restrained elegance harmonises admirably with white bathroom ceramics. Matt white fittings also go perfectly with sophisticated solid-surface washbowls with a satin matt finish. On a natural stone washbasin, matt white mixers blend beautifully with the muted natural ambience. Sophisticated matt black fittings, however, are the ideal choice for customers who want to ex-press their own unique style in their home in a low-key way, making deliberate use of contrasts.
The perfect choice for modern architecture
What the two matt-coloured finishes have in common is that their soft appearance, which is due to reduced light reflection, emphasises the shape of their design more than their chrome counterparts do. Design and aesthetics are brought to the fore and attract greater focus. “With this is mind, matt black and matt white are the perfect choice for contemporary minimalist interiors as these finishes bring out the true beauty of modern purism,” explains Marketing Director Papenfuß.
An additional benefit is that matt finishes are easy to clean because water stains are less apparent. No fingerprints are left behind either, which many end customers already recognise as a great advantage of matt cupboard doors in the kitchen. These qualities are also due to the fact that the Sauerland-based fittings specialist insists on a high-quality powder coating to produce its matt fittings. “That not only makes the finish more durable and easy to clean, it also accentuates the matt colour even better than other processes: You will struggle to find a more elegant matt black or matt white,” says Arndt Papenfuß, confidently.
