Here is a statement from one of our students:

"I am very happy with how the course has gone and feel a lot more confident to continue and progress in my current job. I feel my drawings have really improved and have a much better understanding of how to read other drawings. Valentin has been very supportive throughout the course. Thank you very much !"

    White on white – a sculptural island unit is the centrepiece of this sleek kitchen in a contemporary new house. 

    The island features a fine Corian benchtop that was engineered to accommodate an especially long span. Designer Celia Visser specified a commercial hood with twin motors to ensure the cooktop would be property ventilated. 

    A second working kitchen is positioned behind the rear wall. This incorporates solid oak shelving. As with the main kitchen, the splashback features an oak veneer.

    A long entertainment unit on one side of the kitchen has a similar sculptural look.

    Company founder Julius Blum was a farrier by trade

    Julius Blum, a farrier and carriage smith by trade, founds his company on 1 March 1952. His first product is a horseshoe stud which prevents horses from slipping.

    CLIP, tool-free assembly, feather-light glide, optimal use of storage space, soft-close BLUMOTION and the SERVO-DRIVE electric opening system are all innovations by Blum and milestones in the furniture manufacturing industry. We will continue to be an innovative force in the future. We think of kitchen users and their needs whenever we develop and make our products.

    Blum is one of the largest patent applicants in Austria and has more than 1,000 registered trademarks today.


    Definitely Yes!

    For unbelievable light and spacious appearance, for intelligent allocation of centers and for edgy match of textures and tones with a glamorous chandelier!

    Hollis designed the kitchen--which features a Boffi kitchen system and Gaggenauappliances-- as three zones. The first centers around the stainless-steel-and-Zodiac-stone island, which is topped by a custom beaded chandelier by South African company TeamTwo Design. This zone functions as a place for food preparation, cooking, serving, and socializing. The second zone is the clean-up area, and the third is the bar.
