Kitchen and room planning concepts
of timeless elegance
PURE INSPIR ATION
A room can be an island: an oasis of peace and ease in which you can shed the hectic demands
of everyday life like an overcoat. Generously designed forms, sensitively selected colors, and the avoidance of anything
that is all too decorative create an atmosphere of soothing balance. Elementary simplicity that is understood
the same way around the world. Relaxation with an inspirational effect. A place where your own personality can unfold.
Because here the focus is on the person; not the furniture.

DESIGN TO YOUR HEART’S CONTENT
WELCOME TO THE
WORLD OF SIEMATIC
Give enjoyment more space in your life. The SieMatic Pure style collection
opens up a cornucopia of creative options, with room concepts integrating the functions
of the kitchen with the architecture, perfectly and unobtrusively. The elegant
minimalistic language of form of the furniture elements from the SieMatic Pure style collection
places the focus on what really counts: the lasting values of the exquisite materials
and the precision of their workmanship down to the smallest detail.

The aesthetics of restraint
AS FAR AS THE EYE CAN SEE:
CLEAR LINES, GENEROUS SURFACES
HIGH-QUALITY MATERIALS, GENEROUSLY UTILIZED
In this staging of a SieMatic S2, lotus white lacquered front panels meet light oak,
matt meets gloss, and graphical austerity meets homey elegance. Accents are provided by shining nickel
handle recesses. The veneer front panels of the island extend nearly to the floor and are set apart from the design
of the surrounding elements by a perfect veneer grain. This creates a formal unit that optically
separates kitchen and living area. The panel wall system FloatingSpaces and the tall cabinets are installed in such
a way that they seem to be components of the room architecture. The fine, lotus white shelves are offset
by the natural oak veneer panel wall, in order to soften the austere geometry of the kitchen. One of the shelves
transitions to the neighboring countertop of the same thickness, and the joints of the panel wall are
continued in the vertical handle recesses of the tall cabinets.

THE SIEMATIC ALUMINUM INTERIOR ACCESSORIES
OUTSIDE AND IN:
The new SieMatic aluminum interior accessories create aesthetic
enjoyment that is unique in its functionality and unmistakable in its
graphical look. This is ensured by the innovative new material combination
of aluminum, light oak or dark smoked chestnut, flock, and porcelain,
as well as precise workmanship down to the smallest detail. Intelligent,
contemporary ideas like the integrated USB connection offer new,
valuable functions for the “living space” of the kitchen.
The highly functional system makes it possible to arrange and equip
the drawers in a way that could not be more individual.
The SieMatic interior accessories have won several awards
for their unique design.
EVEN MORE INNER VALUES
AND BEAUTIFUL DETAILS

Everyone is different.
A GOOD MIXTURE:
A block for sharp knives of any length, spice mills
and transparent jars.
BETTER SAFE THAN SORRY:
The GripDeck drawer bottom provides elegant protection
against scratches and keeps pots from sliding.
DRAWERS YOU CAN LOAD UP:
Drawers with an integrated USB charging station keep tablets
and smartphones out of the way.

So is every SieMatic.
The variability of the system elements creates nearly
infinite options for arrangement.
With their versatile furnishing elements, the drawers offer room
for supplies and tall items.
If you want to turn the kitchen into living space, you will want
to store more than cooking utensils there.

FEEL, SEE, HEAR, TASTE
THE KITCHEN IS THERE
FOR ALL YOUR SENSES
In our highly efficient times, many things are losing their individuality. That makes it all the more
understandable that each one of us wants room for a personal lifestyle – including in the kitchen. Because it’s not
just a question of perfect function, but also one of great emotion. After all, the kitchen long ago ceased to be
the nondescript setting for laborious tasks and has instead become the expression of individual lifestyle.
Where practicality meets sensuousness. Here not only the palate and the nose, but also the eyes, ears, and heart
seek joy. It should be a place to enjoy not just cooking, but all of life.
To develop such kitchens – that is the goal of the engineers and designers who work for and with SieMatic.
A particularly impressive result is called SieMatic S1: a feast for all the senses. Its minimalistic design offers
surprising inner values, unique options, and state-of-the art technologies.

OUTSTANDING DESIGN BRINGS JOY
FOR VALUES YOU CAN LIVE
IN FOR A LONG TIME
The world is full of products with a superficial attraction that rapidly fades.
Good design that lasts for decades is not created until something is well thought-out and
well made – and thus provides a timelessly elegant look. The furniture of recognized high design quality
includes not just chairs, tables, and lights but also numerous SieMatic developments:
kitchen programs and design elements that have received internationally recognized design awards
and have earned their place in the history of product design. For example, the SieMatic S1,
whose unmistakable language of form has won numerous awards.

Tradition and innovation
FROM THE CREATORS
OF THE HANDLE-FREE KITCHEN
DESIGN THAT BECOMES THE STANDARD
In 1960, SieMatic presented the first handle-free kitchen to the world, whose
numerous innovations were celebrated as a revolution. Its design became a model for many,
has been adapted sensitively to contemporary taste many times, and has won a number of awards.
After all, who should continue to develop an idea more ambitiously than its inventor?
Thus SieMatic turned the first kitchen without handles and knobs into what is now the broadest
range of planning options for friends of puristically designed, handle-free kitchens.
This example shows an ensemble of elements from SieMatic S2 and SieMatic SE.
The emphatically horizontal lines, the graphical alignment of the furniture elements,
and their symmetrical arrangement radiate a pleasant sense of peace.

For light worth seeing
A SHELF WITH MANY FUNCTIONS
ROOM FOR IDEAS IN EVERY NICHE
The SieMatic light shelf element is truly multi-talented.
Its various light functions – from perfect work light to atmospheric mood lighting –
can be configured individually. Furthermore, it offers many versatile planning
solutions and can be equipped with numerous functional elements.
PAGE _ 28
A continuous veneer pattern
with particularly expressive wood
surfaces gives the design the character
of master craftsmanship. A beautiful example
of this is this homey-elegant planning:
The light hue of sterling grey matt
combined with high-gloss dark graphite
grey in the cooking area. Tall cabinet
elements in exclusive walnut veneer create
an optical link to the living room.

The great proportion of our materials are made of a recyclable material that can be regrown: wood.
We procure it in accordance with the requirements of the Forest Stewardship Council® and from regional providers.
This keeps transport distances and energy consumption to a minimum. State-of-the-art cutting systems
ensure optimal utilization of materials at minimal waste. The remaining waste wood is recycled 100%
or is transformed into energy in our own heating plantst.
PREFERRING THE BEST,
INCLUDING FOR THE ENVIRONMENT
The term “sustainability” comes originally from the area of forestry and means caring
for and using forest areas in ways that take ecological, economical, and social aspects into consideration.
But it is not just because wood is the most important material for SieMatic products that the topic
of “sustainability” has always ranked highly here. True to our corporate motto, “Preferring the best,”
SieMatic’s environmental efforts go far beyond the standard for the industry. Our goal, through a growing
number of effective measures, is to make consistent and exemplary use of the latest ecological findings
in every area of the company and to get confirmation of these measures and their results
from a neutral party. Naturally, the testers in this area are also tested well, in order to
ensure that the environmental certificates won by the company SieMatic and its
products are serious, transparent, and meaningful.

Function and emotion
THIS IS HOW TO
MORE SPACE IN YOUR LIFE
PURE PLEASURE BUILT IN
Do you know the difference between a kitchen and a SieMatic?
A kitchen is for cooking. A SieMatic makes cooking a delight.
And not just cooking: If you want, you can enjoy your whole life here.
Every day. Because SieMatic gives you options that go far beyond
the usual kitchen planning and offer virtually unlimited latitude
for design. Kitchen Interior Design by SieMatic opens up
new creative options with individual room concepts
in which the function of the kitchen is integrated perfectly
with the architecture. So that you can give enjoyment
the perfect space in your life.

Why should your kitchen offer less
entertainment value than your living room?
THE MULTIMEDIA MODULES
With your SieMatic, you can integrate everything you want for your entertainment:
from a high-end audio/video system to Internet access, to charging stations for tablets and smartphones.
That’s the way we envision a contemporary internal design system.
See and hear at a high-tech level: The SieMatic media system offers numerous options for highly individualized
combinations of audio, video, and Internet, as well as optimal quality of data transmission via modern
Bluetooth technology – produced in collaboration with the German sound manufacturer T + A.
THE AUDIO SYSTEM: Radio with VHF tuner, including subwoofer and connection options for all analog devices,
from speaker, to MP3 player, to complete home entertainment system. Connection to Bluetooth-ready devices, such as tablets or smartphones;
thus enabling the best-quality sound output of the audio files possible. The system can be installed in a variety of ways:
with options for a base, wall, or tall cabinet.
THE MEDIA SYSTEM: In addition to all the options of the audio system, it offers a streaming client for web radio,
TV connection via a 19” monitor, iPod connection, and USB interfaces.

STILL A KITCHEN OR
ALREADY A LIVING SPACE?
The FloatingSpaces paneling system offers many
elegant variations with fluid transitions between rooms and
their functions, going beyond known planning solutions. It is available
in nearly all surface designs of the versatile SieMatic program range.
A broad selection is also available for the function elements:
The shelves are available in two thicknesses, in variable lengths,
and in various materials, which can be used tone-on-tone or
contrasting with the surface of the panel wall. This example shows
panels of light stone beech with shelves that echo the white
of the high-gloss lacquered base cabinets in an
PAGE _ 46
FLEXIBLE: The ability to plan panels and shelves down to the millimeter
and the great variety of function elements make it possible to design walls individually
to suit your own taste and needs – and to redesign them again and again.
VARIABLE: Whether bookshelf, railing, or dishtowel hook –
each one of the numerous function elements from the SieMatic FloatingSpaces
system can be easily added to the panel wall or removed.
CONNECTING: An elegant transition from cooking to living area is created
when the shelf of the FloatingSpaces system that connects to the countertop has
the same color and thickness as the countertop itself.
STYLISH: Useful cooking utensils that
you need to keep handy can be placed elegantly
next to living room accessories.
Nobody wants to have to search
for things. And few want to be told how
everything has to be stored. Because we all
have our own sense of order. We all have
our own personal taste. And we can all design
our own SieMatic exactly as we like.

WOODEN INTERIOR ACCESSORIES
CREATING ORDER HAS NEVER BEEN SO MUCH FUN.
The material combination of the SieMatic wood interior accessories,
which have won several design awards, looks like it was “cast from a single mold,”
with light oak, aluminum, and porcelain, elegantly connected by a light shade
of grey. If you love natural, warm, and cozy; if you value precise workmanship;
and if you appreciate a broad range of individual options, then you will
enjoy a feast for the eyes every time you open a drawer.
The SieMatic wood interior design system also encompasses many elements
that are as practical as they are decorative, including stackable
porcelain jars and wooden boxes in various heights that can be labeled and
re-labeled in pencil and provide optimal utilization of storage space, as well as
the matching GripDeck, which keeps pots, pans, and large boxes
of supplies from slipping.

The kitchen as reflection of your own personality
WHAT YOU LOVE,
YOU WANT TO SHOW,
Design can speak volumes: The design of the things with
which we surround ourselves tells of our wishes, dreams, and feelings.
That goes not only for tables, chairs, or lighting fixtures, but also for the many
utensils that are needed in the kitchen and have been selected with love.
In this planning example, closed wall cabinets have been replaced by
the highly flexible SieMatic panel system FloatingSpaces. The variable shelves
with their nearly floating character offer just as much space as you need
for your beautiful and useful things. It is even possible to integrate
an extraction hood.

TIMELESS ELEGANCE IS
AT HOME THE WORLD OVER
This architect’s kitchen interprets the ambience of a prestigious town house.
The tall cabinet elements of the SieMatic SE program and the panel walls of FloatingSpaces
in the sophisticated SieMatic agate grey lacquer form a fluid transition to the living area.
Tall cabinet doors that extend to the floor support this formal connection.
The offset arrangement of shelves and the different widths of the many cabinet elements
cleverly loosen up the overall look. Dark glossy accents are provided by the deep niche area
with its base cabinets in the black of the SieMatic Individual ColorSystem. The elegant look
of the marble in the niche back panel is repeated in the island countertop.
The glass cabinets with door frames of polished nickel also
radiate homey elegance.

where a lot of precious centimeters are given away. Unless you have chosen a SieMatic.
Because all our cabinets offer more: MultiMatic, a highly flexible interior design system
that can be configured, changed, and expanded just as you like. Any time,
without any problems, and by you. Because the patented SieMatic multifunction track ensures

COMBINATION OF EXTERNAL
AND INTERNAL VALUES
Minimalistic design emphasizes the love of detail,
the measure of perfection, and the value of the select materials.
That goes for the surfaces of the cabinet elements as well as their inner life.
Behind every door and in every drawer, you will discover a perfect
new world with SieMatic: material combinations that provide
for fascinating harmony of form and color, inside and out.

THE SIEMATIC COLORSYSTEM
OF SETTING THE
Color is one of the most important design elements in interior design,
because it spontaneously creates moods and feelings. The choice of colors
determines whether a room is perceived as inviting, elegant, generous, cool, or cozy.
Achieving a nuanced combination of the different materials
and door panels used in a kitchen and creating the desired harmony
require not only a highly sensitive use of colors but also a well conceived concept.
That is why the SieMatic ColorSystem was developed. It offers a range
of attractive matt and glossy colors, which are available throughout
all the SieMatic programs.
In addition, in the SQ-lacquer area, other white and grey tones,
as well as the 1,950 individually selectable matt and glossy hues of the
SieMatic Individual ColorSystem, are also available.

GLEAMING QUALITIES, INCLUDING MATT
SQ lacquer surfaces
Nowhere is furniture subject to more stress than in the kitchen. It is for this reason that, particularly
there, materials of select quality and perfect workmanship should be used. With the SieMatic Pure
lacquer programs, home furnishings radiate elegance without offering any point of vulnerability to the high
stresses of the kitchen. This is because the exclusive SieMatic SQ lacquer front panels are manufactured
in “Superior Quality,” in an innovative lacquer process that provides for the greatest flexibility
in planning and guarantees environmentally friendly, first-class quality “made in Germany.”
THE MOST ELEGANT WAY TO SPEND LESS
Both optically and in price, an attractive alternative to the exclusive SieMatic SQ lacquer
front panels is provided by the SieMatic SimiLaque front panels, matt or glossy. Using state-of-the art
laser technology, they are manufactured completely free of joints and seams: in ZeroMatic quality,
which gives them their elegant, high-quality appeal.
A MATERIAL WITH MANY GOOD SIDES
SieMatic laminate furniture panels are available in matt and gloss, are extremely easy to care for, very
sturdy, and have a particularly high-quality, flawlessly beautiful charm. Because they are not manufactured
using conventional processes; instead, like the SimiLaque surfaces, they are created using a state-of-the-art
laser technique to create a surface that is completely free of joints and seams: in perfect ZeroMatic Quality.
FROM NATURE TO THE KITCHEN
As a surface material, wood still continues to enjoy great popularity, because it exudes warmth
and naturalness like no other material. Whether as a massive molded front panel or veneer,
whether smooth or with added profiles, SieMatic Kitchen Interior Design offers a great variety of woods.
Particularly expressive varieties with a continuous veneer pattern give the surface design
the character of master craftsmanship.
COUNTERTOPS AND NICHES
AS DESIGN ELEMENTS
HAS ITS PARTICULAR
In kitchen design, the appearance and nature of the countertops play
an essential role. Whether homey or practical, impressive or functional,
the character of the kitchen can be emphasized or contrasted through the selection
of the countertop and niche material. The range of high-quality countertop designs
is extraordinarily high at SieMatic – from the material, to the thickness,
to the design of the edge, you have the freedom of choice. Whichever you chose:
Even the most extravagant material is refined to such a degree at SieMatic
that it is suitable for even the most intense demands in the kitchen.
PAGE _ 70
Whether marble, granite,
slate, limestone, quartzite,
or volcanic stone:
The particular charm of
countertops of natural stone
lies in the irregularity of
their surface, which
distinguishes them distinctly
Composite stones consist of
more than 90% of natural
quartz, to which resins and
colorings are added. Although
comparable in hardness and
density to natural stone, they
always have uniform surface
colors and structures.
Ceramic is a very
homogeneous and hard
material. The fired surface has
many advantages: It is
impervious to water, can be
recycled, and is absolutely
food-safe, so that no
impregnation is required. In
addition, to a great degree, it
is scratchproof, acid-resistant,
and easy to care for.
Because of their especially
hard surface, woods like oak,
walnut, maple, and bamboo
are ideal countertop
SieMatic craftsmanship gives
them a sophisticated look,
which fits elegantly
and harmoniously into just
about any kitchen.
Stainless steel is a tough,
hygienic material, whose
professional appeal is not
impaired by the traces of use;
it gets even more beautiful
as time goes by. Whether
as a complete countertop
or as a design accent.
SieMatic laminate countertops
have a very resistant, hygienic
surface of layered material
and are available in a wide
selection of decors and edge
designs, which permits
harmonious color choices that
are perfectly attuned to the
front panels and surrounding
PAGE _ 71
THE EXCLUSIVE COUNTERTOPS
AND NICHE PANELS
Countertops and niche panels of real natural or composite stone are timelessly beautiful, incomparably elegant,
and enhance the character of a kitchen. However, countertops of massive stone are usually offered by their manufacturers only
in a few designs. In contrast, SieMatic StoneDesign offers numerous variants to expand planning latitude.
Because these countertops consist of a light support material, topped by a 1-cm-thick slab of granite, marble, slate, limestone,
volcanic stone, or composite stone. This way, countertops can be made in thicknesses, lengths, and areas that are free of joints,
which otherwise would be hardly supportable – thus opening up many design alternatives.
SieMatic countertops can be crafted not only from many different types of stone in thicknesses from 1 to 8 cm, but also with
a wide variety of edge designs: embossed or chiseled, elliptical or mitered, and also in the popular 1 cm look.
And of course, beyond that, SieMatic Kitchen Interior Design also offers a rich selection of variants in wood, stainless steel,
ceramic, and high-quality laminate, which can also be combined well with SieMatic StoneDesign.
THE EDGE DESIGNS FOR SIEMATIC STONEDESIGN
MANY THICKNESSES, MANY OPTIONS
1 CM LOOK
Its delicate charm is created
by the mere 1 cm thickness of the
stone surface, combined with
an invisible support structure, which
ensures great stability and makes
it possible to utilize every kind
of stovetop and sink.
The mitered and bonded sheets
and edges give the appearance
of a massive countertop 3 to 8 cm
thick, to showcase the full beauty
of the high-quality stone.
Working a stone with a chisel
is a very old art. It is suitable for
SieMatic StoneDesign countertops
that are intended to have a
particularly decorative function
in the kitchen design.
The polished surface of the edge
is created in a complex, high-precision,
surface finishing process.
Its decorative character further
underscores the elegance
of the countertop.
Embossing means dressing stones
as done in the architecture
of antiquity and the Middle Ages.
Stone plate edges dressed using this
type of craftsmanship bring
out the natural, original character
of the stone.
