Vlaze’s stand at kbb Birmingham 2020 was showcasing a new range of modular and freestanding kitchen units that offer a more versatile lifestyle.
Company director Ced Wells commented: “Vlaze Adapt is modular furniture that moves around your space with you, so you can take it from inside to the outside. It’s for people who want the flexibility at home.”
Vlaze is located on the Isle of Wight and so says that it knows thing or two about the British summer. “On the Continent, they often eat outside,” said Wells. “In the UK, there’s a tendency to not install an outdoor kitchen permanently, because we don’t have the weather for it. So something that has an incredible finish and is durable, modular, and free-moving is perfect. The Vlaze Adapt is a versatile piece that can be used for dining, food preparation, and entertaining.”
Engineered from stainless steel and finished with a vitreous enamel surface, the furniture is said to be heat-proof, stain-resistant, and hygienic. The finish is created by fusing powdered glass to steel at high temperatures. Vlaze Adapt comes in a number of colour options such as Graphite, Splatter, Indigo, Ochre, and Nori. There are also choices of worktop, bases and the size of unit. Sinks hobs, and ovens can be accommodated with additional customisable options.
Vlaze also has a range of splashbacks, heat shields, hearth plates, and even large shower and wet-room panels as an alternative to tiles. The company is a division of AJ Wells & Sons, the maker of the signage on the London Underground and Paris Metro.
