Everything in easy reach
The coveted if product design award is awarded to innovations that demonstrate great and immediately evident product benefits together with a clear design language.
Unreachable contents now in easy reach
An elegant alternative to a step ladder
Demand for a lot of storage space and for uniform cabinet heights often produces kitchens where the top shelves of the wall units are unreachable unless you’re pretty tall. Even if people are growing taller, many users can’t make full use of their wall units because they have difficulty reaching them.
The result is that they use the shelves either to store stuff that they use only very occasionally, or a stepladder becomes an indispensable piece of kitchen equipment. Both of these solutions are far from optimal.
Enter a pull-down system that floats the contents of your wall unit gently down into easy reach – it’s the iMove. Operate it one-handed. The iMove and all its contents are pulled downwards and outwards in one effortless movement. The contents of the top shelves are now easier to reach than the bottom shelf of the wall unit. The drop-down railing on an iMove shelf makes access even easier.
When the iMove reaches its lowest point, at the end of the movement, reaching the contents is ultra-easy. It’s a big gain in user-friendliness, especially for the youngest members of the household.
All a question of engineering
The intelligent movement of the iMove is a balanced interaction of different forces – from the lever, the spring and a gentle pull or push from the user. What’s so fascinating about iMove is the way in which a simple, almost effortless movement by the user triggers mechanical motion. A little tug – a large effect!
The smooth, fluid downward movement is activated by the pull-down plus the weight of the payload. At the endpoint the pull-down locks open automatically, so that you can use both hands for loading and unloading.
iMove movement is supported by spring force so that a payload of up to 8 kg can be lifted. The mechanism is integrated in a slim and very compact fitting – so that an iMove can also be installed in a relatively shallow wall unit.
iMove has grown out of tried and tested Kesseböhmer technology. It’s manufactured using high-quality materials and it’s out – standingly user-friendly and reliable.
All the iMove variants passed all their product tests with flying colours, far outperforming current norms and standards. iMove fittings need no maintenance. They are engineered for extremely long and totally unproblematic service lives. Side dress covers for the moving parts and the handle protect against the risk of injury and contribute to the streamlined design.
Mechanism, lever effect and spring support have been engineered so that all payloads up to 8 kilogram can be lowered and raised with very little effort. Settings can be individually adjusted. The iMove is in every way an uncomplicated and reliable product – mature technology delivers unequalled ease-of-use.
