EDITORIAL<br />

“Let’s make kitchens more attractive. . .”<br />

Willi Bruckbauer, developer<br />

and founder of <strong>BORA</strong><br />

Lüftungstechnik, on an idea<br />

that turned the kitchen<br />

world upside down in just<br />

a few years.<br />

This was the basic idea. As a carpenter with a kitchen studio, I spent every day with customers<br />

who wanted us to make their dream kitchens a reality. Even a decade ago, I was often<br />

anxiously asked: “Do we really have to use such a huge, noisy extractor hood? Isn’t there<br />

a more attractive option?” My inability to offer buyers an optimum solution was something<br />

that I saw as both an annoyance and a challenge. I set to work developing a system that<br />

could draw vapours downwards. I was driven by pure curiosity, but also the ambition to<br />

make kitchens a more attractive and enjoyable place. Many months passed before I finally<br />

put pen to paper with a design for an extractor that could optimally extract vapours<br />

downwards. At the time, I never imagined that my idea would turn the kitchen world<br />

upside down to such an extent.<br />

Ten years have now passed since I established <strong>BORA</strong>. And I have believed in my idea right from<br />

day one. Our focus is on innovative and solution-oriented technologies that help to improve<br />

people’s quality of life. The perfect kitchens also have to work perfectly. They have to be easy<br />

to clean and quiet, i.e. with no annoying noises to distract people from cooking and enjoying<br />

life in the kitchen. As the kitchen is the heart of the home and the place where meals are<br />

lovingly prepared, the environment should be full of fresh air rather than lingering cooking<br />

odours.<br />

Nowadays, cooktop extractors are completely on-trend. It is said that we, at <strong>BORA</strong>, triggered<br />

this hype. And I sometimes rub my eyes in amazement at this. But our fan community,<br />

which now cooks with <strong>BORA</strong> in over 50 countries, proves us right. The huge success that<br />

our company has achieved is somewhat of a revolution <strong>–</strong> and one that has only been made<br />

possible thanks to our many motivated employees and kitchen retailers. We may well have<br />

fundamentally altered the design and function of kitchens, but we are not stopping here.<br />

We are continuing to develop innovations for our customers.<br />

In this edition of our magazine, we will present a new product to you: the <strong>BORA</strong> Basic All<br />

Black, the well-established system further refined with a black air inlet nozzle. The colour<br />

scheme is characterised by stylish understatement and purism at its finest. Turn to page<br />

36 to find out more. The magazine naturally also covers everything you need to know<br />

about our Basic, Classic and Professional product ranges, including planning instructions,<br />

application and combination options, dimensions and technical details.<br />

We invite you to take a look at our company and our philosophy, our worlds of experience<br />

with recipes, the <strong>BORA</strong> Cooking Truck and our commitment to cycling, not to mention kitchen<br />

and architectural topics. Everything that motivates and inspires us to make the world of<br />

kitchens a little better every day.<br />

Enjoy browsing our magazine.<br />

Welcome to our world!<br />

Yours,<br />

Willi Bruckbauer<br />

<strong>BORA</strong> MAGAZINE


The <strong>BORA</strong> principle <strong>–</strong> or:<br />

physics can be so ingenious.<br />

1<br />

Kitchen vapours rise at a maximum<br />

speed of one metre per second.<br />

2<br />

The <strong>BORA</strong> cooktop extractor extracts<br />

downward at approx. four metres per second.<br />

3<br />

The higher cross flow suctions away<br />

cooking vapours and odours effectively,<br />

directly at the cooktop.<br />

<strong>BORA</strong> is synonymous with innovation<br />

and creativity in the kitchen. We have<br />

revolutionised the design and function of<br />

kitchens. The <strong>BORA</strong> principle is gaining<br />

increasing ground. We believe in our vision<br />

of ‘the end of the extractor hood’. We offer<br />

more freedom, enhanced functions and<br />

extraordinary design options.<br />

We set the highest quality standards for<br />

our products and services. The fact that<br />

our production sites are based in Germany<br />

and Austria ensures that we fulfil these<br />

commitments. We only use high-quality<br />

materials, such as stainless steel and<br />

glass, and avoid substances that are<br />

hazardous to the environment. We work<br />

with excellent preliminary suppliers<br />

including SCHOTT, E.G.O. and ebm-papst<br />

for our motor technology, enabling<br />

us to only ever bring top-quality<br />

products onto the market that benefit<br />

our customers and are environmentally<br />

sustainable.<br />

The <strong>BORA</strong> principle is catching on. More<br />

and more manufacturers are realising<br />

that our vision of the end of the extractor<br />

hood offers new kitchen design options<br />

and outstanding customer benefits. We<br />

remain focused. Cooking vapours and<br />

odours are no match for <strong>BORA</strong> <strong>–</strong><br />

we suction them away precisely where<br />

they arise, i.e. directly at the cooktop.<br />

We extract vapours straight from pots,<br />

roasters, pans or grills by means of physics,<br />

not by magic! We simply use a cross<br />

flow which is greater than the speed at<br />

which the cooking vapours rise.<br />

Advances in patented technology<br />

We work with patents. Our cooktop<br />

extractor systems are so effective and<br />

energy efficient that their performance<br />

goes far beyond that of conventional<br />

extractor hoods and modern<br />

interpretations. We are extremely<br />

active in research and development<br />

with 55 international patent applications<br />

currently pending.<br />

Cleanrate <strong>–</strong> or the true measure of<br />

performance<br />

Extractor hoods are assessed according<br />

to DIN EN 61591, which measures the<br />

fan power, volume and grease filtering.<br />

<strong>BORA</strong> devised the cleanrate procedure<br />

in order to compare the performance of<br />

different systems objectively in terms of<br />

their ability to eliminate the unwanted<br />

side-effects of cooking.<br />

The cleanrate refers to the air purity level<br />

while cooking. The higher odour particles<br />

rise, the more they contaminate the air<br />

in the kitchen. Conventional extractor<br />

hoods only extract some of the vapours<br />

generated. In tests, <strong>BORA</strong> achieves a<br />

cleanrate of almost 100% directly at<br />

head height <strong>–</strong> a level that manufacturers<br />

of traditional extractor hoods can only<br />

dream of. Cooking with <strong>BORA</strong> is like<br />

cooking in the fresh air.<br />

Constantly improving <strong>–</strong> constantly<br />

progressing<br />

<strong>BORA</strong> is now offering its customers an<br />

extended warranty on all <strong>BORA</strong> cooktop<br />

extractor systems. To benefit, simply<br />

go to www.mybora.com and enter the<br />

code from the sticker on the cooktop<br />

extractor. This will automatically extend<br />

your warranty by another year, free<br />

of charge. We train our global retail<br />

partners using our in-house training<br />

measures to make sure that our<br />

customers are given top-quality advice.<br />

At the <strong>BORA</strong> Training Lab in Raubling,<br />

we hold daily training sessions on<br />

installation, advice and sales to<br />

guarantee that our customers receive<br />

the best advice and implementation<br />

services on site. Our Planning<br />

department helps our specialist<br />

suppliers optimally implement your<br />

system. <strong>BORA</strong>’s very own international<br />

service team deals with any problems<br />

that can only be efficiently resolved on<br />

site, such as a cracked glass cooktop<br />

or a filter replacement.<br />

<strong>BORA</strong> SYSTEM<br />

A complete system with<br />

a functional guarantee<br />

Everything from a single source <strong>–</strong><br />

for more quality down to the<br />

finest details<br />

To ensure that <strong>BORA</strong> systems can be<br />

seamlessly installed, we offer you parts<br />

that can be used universally for optimum<br />

performance down to the finest details.<br />

We also see it as our duty to always think<br />

ahead and constantly improve.<br />

The best proof of <strong>BORA</strong>’s outstanding sense of<br />

innovation and individualism is our specially<br />

developed duct system featuring the <strong>BORA</strong><br />

Ecotube and the <strong>BORA</strong> 3box wall sleeve. Now, a<br />

system is available that perfectly meets the high<br />

standards required with regard to effectiveness,<br />

ease of installation and flexibility.<br />

If you use only <strong>BORA</strong> components in your <strong>BORA</strong><br />

system we grant you a 100% functional guarantee<br />

of optimum performance, effectiveness and<br />

quietness.<br />

<strong>BORA</strong> Ecotube and <strong>BORA</strong> 3box <strong>–</strong> an air duct system<br />

for every challenge. Regardless of where you<br />

install your air duct, on the kitchen floor or along<br />

the cellar ceiling, the <strong>BORA</strong> Ecotube offers optimum<br />

functionality and promises uncompromising<br />

performance. Compared to conventional duct<br />

systems, the <strong>BORA</strong> Ecotube boasts considerable<br />

advantages, e.g. 20% less pressure loss thanks<br />

to optimised flow and smooth surfaces, a unique<br />

sealing concept and easy installation.<br />

The <strong>BORA</strong> 3box wall sleeve rounds off the<br />

extraction system perfectly as it boasts excellent<br />

heat insulation properties, watertightness (even<br />

against driving rain) and extremely low pressure<br />

resistance. All of the materials used naturally<br />

meet the requirements of fire protection class<br />

V0 and material class B1.<br />

<strong>BORA</strong> is a system provider and specialist.<br />

We focus exclusively on cooktops and cooktop<br />

extractor systems. We see our solutions as<br />

systems and we think in terms of systems.<br />

We start with the cooktop, which is perfectly<br />

tailored to the cooktop extractor, then we<br />

combine both elements to begin our planning<br />

process. The ducts, motors, filters and even<br />

the wall sleeves are all part of the same<br />

application. We also deal with all of your cooking<br />

and ventilation requirements, from the extractor<br />

right down to the wall sleeve.<br />

Our air purification boxes take health issues<br />

into account and are part of our day-to-day<br />

responsibility.<br />

A perfect combination of<br />

award-winning design,<br />

high-quality materials and<br />

innovative technology.<br />

<strong>BORA</strong> Professional 2.0 <strong>–</strong> functional<br />

aesthetics, innovative effectiveness,<br />

extra-deep dimensions, best performance <strong>–</strong><br />

winner of the 2017 Red Dot Award.<br />

The new Professional 2.0 is an evolved version of<br />

the original <strong>BORA</strong> system.<br />

We retained all of the tried-and-tested elements<br />

<strong>–</strong> such as the extra-deep cooktops, the knobs<br />

and the efficiency of the actual system <strong>–</strong> and<br />

enhanced other aspects with a view to combining<br />

simplicity, functionality and optimum performance<br />

in a single, electrically controlled system.<br />

The panel of judges of the Red Dot Award chose<br />

<strong>BORA</strong> Professional 2.0 as the best of the best<br />

systems in 2017 before it was even launched on<br />

the market <strong>–</strong> further proof of the innovativeness<br />

and engineering ingenuity of the new system.<br />

The heart of the Revolution 2.0 is the user<br />

interface, which now allows the cooktops and<br />

cooktop extractor to communicate with one<br />

another. This enables us to achieve optimum<br />

user friendliness and outstanding effectiveness.<br />

Everything is made possible by an intelligent<br />

control knob: from power control to the various<br />

function programmes to the temperature<br />

indicator in the knob itself.<br />

<strong>BORA</strong> Professional is a complete system.<br />

Cooktops, cooktop extractors, ducts, motors,<br />

filters and wall sleeves are combined in this<br />

electrically controlled system to create a<br />

With their huge depth of 54 cm, the cooktops<br />

are the deepest modular cooktops on the market,<br />

offering an extremely large cooking area. As you<br />

can see on pages 14/15, the surface induction<br />

version with flexible cooking zones enables you<br />

to place up to three pans on a cooktop at once.<br />

The <strong>BORA</strong> Professional 2.0 system also offers<br />

huge versatility and various composition options <strong>–</strong><br />

from Tepan to wok cooktops. It all boils down to<br />

how and with what you prefer cooking.<br />

Thanks to our EC motors, <strong>BORA</strong> Professional 2.0<br />

also cooks extremely quietly and efficiently.<br />

To fine-tune the system even further and offer a<br />

100% functional guarantee, <strong>BORA</strong> has introduced<br />

its very own Ecotube duct system. Optimally<br />

coordinated products, right down to the <strong>BORA</strong><br />

3box wall sleeve, create an overall system that<br />

meets exacting requirements in terms of<br />

effectiveness, ease of installation and flexibility.<br />

What’s more, <strong>BORA</strong> Professional 2.0 is significantly<br />

quieter than conventional extractor hoods. In fact,<br />

its noise level is even drowned out when frying a<br />

steak. The system also cuts an impressive figure<br />

in terms of energy efficiency, with an A++ rating.<br />

Customers can choose whether to install <strong>BORA</strong><br />

Professional 2.0 as a recirculation or exhaust air<br />

system. The new Professional can essentially be<br />

installed as a ‘plug and play’ compact system with<br />

integrated fan and silencer. This opens up the<br />

previously unavailable opportunity to install a<br />

modular cooktop extractor system in floating<br />

worktops. A world first. A revolution. With an<br />

installation height of just 199 mm, the system<br />

is practically made for floating worktops.<br />

<strong>BORA</strong> Classic<br />

Innovation down to the last detail


Touch controls and a design scaled down to<br />

<strong>BORA</strong> Classic won the Red Dot Award for Product<br />

Design. This highlights <strong>BORA</strong>’s outstanding sense<br />

of innovation and the functionality of the product,<br />

which combines attractive aesthetics with a<br />

minimalist design.<br />

On a smaller scale than <strong>BORA</strong> Professional,<br />

<strong>BORA</strong> Classic can make your cooking and kitchen<br />

dreams come true in perfectly designed rooms.<br />

There’s no annoying hood to spoil the appearance<br />

of your kitchen, yet you still have an ideal solution<br />

for extracting cooking vapours thanks to the<br />

<strong>BORA</strong> principle.<br />

Whether you combine your kitchen units with steel,<br />

glass, wood or stone, the streamlined design of<br />

<strong>BORA</strong> Classic blends into any surroundings.<br />

The innovative ventilation technology is sure to<br />

attract everyone’s attention when the device is<br />

turned on and cooking vapours and odours are<br />

drawn downwards as if by magic.<br />

<strong>BORA</strong> Classic also offers the latest motor<br />

technology and an energy efficiency rating of<br />

A++. You can choose from a range of cooktops<br />

that can all be combined with one another,<br />

including surface induction, wok, gas, Tepan<br />

and classic Hyper glass ceramic cooktops.<br />

<strong>BORA</strong> Classic is controlled using an intuitive<br />

touchscreen operating panel that only becomes<br />

visible when it is switched on. As such, our<br />

Classic system is ideal for minimalist kitchens.<br />

The cooktop extractor comprises two identical,<br />

polished stainless steel cover plates that can<br />

The revolution: cooktop<br />

and extractor rolled into one <strong>–</strong><br />

suitable for any kitchen


<strong>BORA</strong> Basic <strong>–</strong> different products for different<br />

users. Optimised to meet the demands of<br />

modern kitchen planning.<br />

A strong pair: we have combined a powerful<br />

cooktop and an effective cooktop extractor<br />

to create an attractive system. With its<br />

unconventional design and intuitive power<br />

electronics, <strong>BORA</strong> Basic makes you want to<br />

experience kitchens in a whole new way.<br />

Various sizes and functions offer alternatives for<br />

every kitchen, depending on the dimensions and<br />

layout of the room. <strong>BORA</strong> Basic is an all-rounder<br />

offering bigger, more attractive cooking zones,<br />

quieter operation, easy cleaning and optimum<br />

interior design <strong>–</strong> with the added advantage of<br />

great space-saving options for smaller kitchens.


<strong>BORA</strong> BASIC<br />

<strong>BORA</strong> Basic <strong>–</strong> the perfect introduction to<br />

while cooking and regain freedom when planning<br />

your kitchen. The <strong>BORA</strong> design with its timeless<br />

appearance and functional material quality offers<br />

a discreet highlight in your kitchen <strong>–</strong> based on<br />

the excellent performance of the actual product.<br />

<strong>BORA</strong> has fundamentally changed the design and<br />

function of kitchens, turning them into joint<br />

cooking and living areas and providing an<br />

attractive stage for modern kitchen design.<br />

Different products for different users: the <strong>BORA</strong><br />

Basic surface induction cooktop with integrated<br />

extractor boasts an innovative touch-control concept<br />

that has recently been revised and further<br />

optimised. Thanks to the touch-operated round<br />

slider, you can keep a clear eye on all cooking<br />

zones and the round extractor and can operate<br />

a large cooktop measuring 830 x 515 mm.<br />

The cooking zones have also been further<br />

enlarged to now offer 20 to 50% more cooking<br />

area than similar systems, making them ideal<br />

even for small kitchens. Two large pots or pans<br />

can sit behind one another on the <strong>BORA</strong> surface<br />

induction cooktop.<br />

Customers with even less kitchen space can<br />

opt for the <strong>BORA</strong> Basic version measuring just<br />

760 x 515 mm. Even in this slightly smaller<br />

version, the cooktop still offers all the <strong>BORA</strong><br />

advantages, i.e. it is efficient and quiet just like<br />

all of the other systems.<br />

Versatility is ensured by the various different<br />

models, including induction, Hyper and flexible<br />

surface induction. We have the right product for<br />

every customer, depending on their personal<br />

requirements and wishes.<br />

<strong>BORA</strong> Basic customers can not only choose<br />

between flush and surface-mounted versions,<br />

but can also opt for a brushed stainless steel<br />

cooktop frame. This offers extra protection for<br />

surface-mounted cooktops, particularly in smaller<br />

kitchens where work space is restricted.<br />

Also new is the All Black Edition of the air inlet<br />

nozzle, now available as an accessory.<br />

Exhaust air or recirculation <strong>–</strong> once again, the<br />

choice is yours. Storage space is often in great<br />

demand, especially in smaller kitchens, and can<br />

be further optimised by selecting a recirculation<br />

system. You don’t have to forgo any wall units<br />

because of an extractor hood, and <strong>BORA</strong> Basic<br />

hardly takes up any space in the floor unit.<br />

The air is filtered and cleaned by the activated<br />

charcoal filter, then returned to the room<br />

through an opening in the floor unit. Simply<br />

and quietly.<br />

<strong>BORA</strong> MAGAZINE


Large cooking zone<br />

Plenty of room and scope for<br />

professional cooking<br />

The large size of the cooking zone is one<br />

of the impressive qualities offered by<br />

this system. The position of the innovative<br />

touchscreen operating panels eliminates<br />

all boundaries when cooking, even with<br />

slightly smaller <strong>BORA</strong> Basic versions.<br />

The layout of the operating panels has<br />

been designed to enable optimum use of<br />

the cooktop space. For surface-mounted<br />

systems, the stainless steel cooktop<br />

frame not only offers suitable protection<br />

but also perfectly showcases the cooktop.<br />

Lots of storage space<br />

The cooktop extractor provides<br />

room for kitchen accessories<br />

<strong>BORA</strong> Basic enables you to make the<br />

most of the space in your kitchen. Thanks<br />

to the design freedom offered by the<br />

cooktop extractor, you can perfectly<br />

adapt your kitchen to any floor plan <strong>–</strong><br />

without losing valuable space to an<br />

extractor hood, which you could better<br />

use for wall units. You even retain most<br />

of the space in the floor unit too. Storage<br />

space is often in great demand in smaller<br />

kitchens and can be optimised through<br />

the air recirculation filter unit integrated<br />

into <strong>BORA</strong> Basic systems. This makes<br />

the need to truncate drawers to<br />

accommodate air ducts a thing of<br />

the past!<br />

Simple cleaning<br />

The removable parts are all<br />

dishwasher safe<br />

Like all <strong>BORA</strong> systems, <strong>BORA</strong> Basic<br />

impresses with outstanding everyday<br />

advantages. This is particularly evident<br />

when it comes to its service-friendly<br />

cleaning. All extractor components<br />

that come into direct contact with<br />

greasy cooking vapours, including the<br />

multi-layered grease filter made of<br />

stainless steel wire mesh, can be simply<br />

detached without any need for tools and<br />

quickly and easily cleaned in a dishwasher.<br />

The flush design of the cooktops also<br />

eliminates nooks or crannies in which<br />

dirt could collect.<br />

The key<br />

<strong>BORA</strong> advantages<br />

These advantages are key traits of all <strong>BORA</strong> products <strong>–</strong> from<br />

Basic to Professional. <strong>BORA</strong> stands for outstanding quality<br />

and premium materials. Based on innovative ideas, we provide<br />

effective solutions that are carefully thought-out down to the<br />

last detail. High-performance ventilation technology made by<br />

<strong>BORA</strong> is perfect for anyone who appreciates streamlined,<br />

minimalist design and trendsetting technology.<br />

<strong>BORA</strong> MAGAZINE


Fresh air<br />

Cooking while surrounded<br />

by fresh air<br />

<strong>BORA</strong> draws off odours and grease<br />

particles directly from the cookware.<br />

This prevents cooking vapours from rising<br />

up and spreading annoyingly throughout<br />

the whole room. The grease particles<br />

released during cooking are effectively<br />

trapped in the stainless steel grease<br />

filter. It is therefore like cooking in the<br />

fresh air.<br />

Quiet operation<br />

Significantly quieter than<br />

conventional extractor hoods<br />

Conventional extractor hoods blast out<br />

around 70 decibels (A) directly at head<br />

height. <strong>BORA</strong>, on the other hand, is quieter<br />

than frying a steak, even when set to the<br />

highest level. This is possible thanks to<br />

the sophisticated technology with quiet<br />

motors, perfect decoupling and installation<br />

of the products in the kitchen plinth.<br />

Simple cleaning<br />

Why make things difficult<br />

when there is an easy option?<br />

Cleaning conventional extractor hoods<br />

is laborious and time-consuming. In<br />

contrast, <strong>BORA</strong> products impress with<br />

outstanding everyday advantages,<br />

including when it comes to cleaning and<br />

maintenance. All movable parts can be<br />

easily dismantled without any tools and<br />

cleaned in the dishwasher.<br />

Effectiveness<br />

A focus on the bare essentials<br />

Conventional extractor hoods work<br />

extremely hard for a comparatively<br />

limited result. <strong>BORA</strong> cooktop extractors<br />

are a smart and highly effective solution.<br />

The best evidence of this is the 100%<br />

cleanrate at head height. This is because<br />

the intelligently used flow speed and<br />

innovative motor technology guide<br />

vapours directly to their destination.<br />

Best materials<br />

High functionality and<br />

long service life<br />

High-quality materials which ensure an<br />

excellent degree of functionality and a<br />

long service life are united in a premium<br />

system with no compromises. We set<br />

design standards by using pure stainless<br />

steel and heavy-metal-free glass ceramic.<br />

We promise that cooking with <strong>BORA</strong> will<br />

offer long-lasting delight.<br />

Design freedom<br />

Setting the standard for<br />

modern kitchen design<br />

<strong>BORA</strong> opens up a whole new range of<br />

kitchen design options. Virtually<br />

everything is possible: cooking by the<br />

window or under eaves, cooker islands<br />

with no annoying hoods, more room for<br />

top cupboards in small kitchens,<br />

seamless minimalism... <strong>BORA</strong> sets the<br />

standard for modern kitchen aesthetics.<br />

Clear view<br />

No annoying head-height<br />

extractor hoods<br />

<strong>BORA</strong> means freedom from the<br />

constraints of conventional extractor<br />

hoods. No edges or corners at head<br />

height. No stooped stance. No steam to<br />

block your view or cloud up your glasses.<br />

No restriction on visibility. Thanks to<br />

<strong>BORA</strong>, chefs are not trapped on their<br />

own but can interact with guests.<br />

KLAUDIA MEINERT


An interview with Willi Bruckbauer and<br />

Johann Lafer about good food, time<br />

management and motivation.<br />

Two men for whom the concept of sitting on their laurels is inconceivable.<br />

Both have a certain restlessness about them. They are always on the lookout for<br />

new challenges: the founder of <strong>BORA</strong>, whose cooktop extractors triggered a new<br />

trend in the kitchen world, and the top chef, whose Michelin-star creations can be<br />

found on all channels. At first glance, they appear very different. On closer<br />

inspection, however, they actually have a great deal in common. They are both<br />

driven by joie de vivre and passion, motivation and courage. They also share a<br />

vision: “Cooking should be fun.”<br />

Willi, Johann: It’s great to get you both together.<br />

You’ve known each other for many years,<br />

but I presume that your hectic workloads<br />

and many projects give you little time to<br />

meet up...<br />

Willi: That’s unfortunately true, yes. And when<br />

we do meet up, the time always flies by far too<br />

quickly. It’s just like for everyone else. But there<br />

are also many touchpoints where we meet in a<br />

purely professional capacity. For example,<br />

Johann cooked for us at the interiors trade fair<br />

in Cologne and has created a recipe book for<br />

and with <strong>BORA</strong>.<br />

Johann: That was great fun. I devised all of the<br />

recipes myself and was both a host and an active<br />

participant in the photo shoot for the book at<br />

the Stromburg. It was a crazy day. Believe me,<br />

Willi, I’ve a great deal of experience when it<br />

comes to shoots like these and am very much<br />

used to hard work as a chef, but the photo<br />

shoot was so fast-paced that I was ready to<br />

collapse by the evening. Working with <strong>BORA</strong><br />

really is dynamic!<br />

Willi: True. Things move at astonishing speed<br />

with us. We also have to improvise at times. But<br />

the end result makes it all worthwhile it: a book<br />

in which the recipes beautifully show that you<br />

can cook healthy and refined food on an everyday<br />

basis. And that was our aim.<br />

Am I correct in understanding that <strong>BORA</strong><br />

has published several cookbooks under the<br />

motto ‘10|10’ with recipes based on the<br />

simple principle of taking 10 minutes to<br />

prepare and 10 minutes to cook?<br />

Willi: Yes, we believed it was important to note that<br />

not everyone can always cook haute cuisine in the<br />

kitchen, the place where people all over the world<br />

get together in the evening to enjoy a relaxing end<br />

to their day. And they don’t have to be able to either.<br />

Johann and other chefs, such as Andreas Senn,<br />

therefore developed refined dishes for us that you<br />

can easily make in just a short time <strong>–</strong> without being<br />

some sort of magician! Cooking should be fun.<br />

People experience enough stress in their lives but<br />

healthy eating is still hugely important.<br />

<strong>BORA</strong> MAGAZINE


INTERVIEW<br />

EXPERIENCE<br />

We don’t need to mention that Johann Lafer<br />

is passionate about cooking. But what about<br />

you, Willi?<br />

Willi: I love spending evenings in the kitchen with<br />

my family. My favourite meal is steak and vegetables.<br />

Done! I really enjoy cooking and particularly like<br />

making down-to-earth meals with top-quality<br />

ingredients. Of course, these always have to be<br />

healthy too. I’m consistent in this. I like standing<br />

at the cooktop and letting the raw meat sizzle away<br />

in front of me while we chat about everything and<br />

anything <strong>–</strong> including how our days went, of course.<br />

So you don’t only like cooking ‘for business’?<br />

Willi: No, but I equally love cooking with my staff<br />

and our distribution partners. It’s a dream come<br />

true to experience such enjoyable times with<br />

people who share my passion for <strong>BORA</strong>.<br />

This is a win-win situation for me. We cook with<br />

the staff at <strong>BORA</strong> as often as possible.<br />

The 5,000 distributors worldwide, who regularly<br />

visit us in Raubling for training sessions and<br />

seminars, also hold a large number of cooking<br />

events. I love it when I can attend them.<br />

Johann: It’s also true, Willi, that if you’re<br />

passionate about something, you love doing it.<br />

Things that others might regard as work <strong>–</strong> and<br />

which can admittedly often be exhausting <strong>–</strong> give<br />

us a sense of joy and fulfilment. I think we’re<br />

pretty similar in that regards. When it comes to<br />

putting our heart and soul into things and<br />

bringing about new ideas, we’re both insatiable<br />

in the truest sense of the word.<br />

You’ve got a huge amount going on at the<br />

moment too, Johann: to mark your 60th<br />

birthday <strong>–</strong> we hope you don‘t mind us<br />

mentioning that! <strong>–</strong> you’ve fulfilled a great<br />

dream and launched the Lafer <strong>Magazine</strong>,<br />

all about your culinary world.<br />

Johann: Despite not being a journalist or media<br />

producer, I was heavily involved in the development<br />

of the magazine right from day one. I was simply<br />

brimming with ideas; when you get about as<br />

much as I do, you have plenty to report on.<br />

For example, my interview with the German<br />

Austrian-born Johann Lafer<br />

began his meteoric rise as a<br />

top chef over 40 years ago.<br />

And as exhausting as his job<br />

can often be, he still clearly<br />

loves it.<br />

<strong>BORA</strong> MAGAZINE 49


EXPERIENCE<br />

INTERVIEW<br />

President Frank-Walter Steinmeier was particularly<br />

interesting. It’s not every day that you get the<br />

chance to look behind the culinary scenes of<br />

government officials. It was naturally also a<br />

great honour to conduct an interview with<br />

Queen Silvia of Sweden. I felt almost ennobled.<br />

Willi: Which you’re not though, Johann. You’re<br />

known for being down to earth <strong>–</strong> which is<br />

something else we have in common. Perhaps it’s<br />

partly something to do with our origins? I grew<br />

up in the Bavarian town of Raubling, where<br />

<strong>BORA</strong>’s head office is located today. Back then,<br />

the region didn‘t have any Michelin-star chefs,<br />

just simple and tasty food shaped by the Alpine<br />

landscape around us. You come from Styria and<br />

have told me all about your mother’s cooking<br />

with a gleam in your eye on several occasions.<br />

Johann: That’s what initially ignited my passion.<br />

And cooking is something that will never go out<br />

of fashion. Being a chef is a future-proof career.<br />

But you have to acquire knowledge and learn to<br />

offer quality, over and over again. And this was<br />

sort of my vision with the Lafer <strong>Magazine</strong>: to take<br />

people with me into the culinary world, which I’m<br />

Johann Lafer and<br />

Willi Bruckbauer know and<br />

respect one another; they<br />

also agree on their recipe for<br />

success, i.e. pace, passion and<br />

a constant search for new<br />

avenues.<br />

50<br />

<strong>BORA</strong> MAGAZINE


so passionate about that I’m happy to share. I’d<br />

say that you’re extremely passionate about what<br />

you do too, Willi. Otherwise you’d struggle to cope<br />

with a daily routine like yours.<br />

Time management is an important factor<br />

here. Johann, you travel the world looking<br />

for the best meat in Uruguay and gaining<br />

inspiration for your dishes throughout Asia.<br />

You’re also on television. And Willi, exactly<br />

ten years on from when you first founded<br />

<strong>BORA</strong>, you’re now represented in 58 countries<br />

worldwide. How do you cope with your<br />

workload? How do you strike a work/life<br />

balance?<br />

Willi: I manage the fast pace through precisely<br />

that <strong>–</strong> a fast pace! I’m not just a businessman,<br />

but also an avid road cyclist. I competed in many<br />

cycling championships during my younger days,<br />

and if I’d had what it took to be a great cyclist,<br />

I’d have become a professional. I wasn’t quite<br />

good enough, but at <strong>BORA</strong> we’ve been able to<br />

attract the reigning three-times World Champion<br />

Peter Sagan to our <strong>BORA</strong> <strong>–</strong> hansgrohe team.<br />

And that’s quite an achievement too! But in all<br />

seriousness: I find the best way to switch off is<br />

to hop on my bike on a nice day and pedal off.<br />

Riding all out for hours in almost any weather.<br />

In a group or on my own. That is my world.<br />

Even the greatest stress rolls off my shoulders.<br />

Johann: It’s all about peace and quiet for me too.<br />

Heading up the Reiteralm in the Styrian village of<br />

Schladming on a clear winter’s day and gazing<br />

out at the snow-covered landscape from an altitude<br />

of 1,800 metres is great for clearing the head. You<br />

can suddenly see what really matters in life.<br />

What else is important for professional<br />

success?<br />

Willi: You have to listen, give things consideration<br />

and think ahead. When I talk to people, I always<br />

try to put myself in their shoes. For example, to<br />

try and understand what they want from a kitchen<br />

and how we can further optimise what we do.<br />

Simply put, I want to make life in the kitchen<br />

more enjoyable for people. The notion of sitting<br />

on my laurels is inconceivable for me.<br />

Johann: For me, it’s also extremely important to<br />

think about the chefs of the future. I’m actively<br />

committed to this. For example, with the Next<br />

Chef Award, where we want to find the next<br />

great chef. There are so many talented people out<br />

there! Even non-professionals are now cooking<br />

to an extremely high standard. The dishes that<br />

I’ve been presented by amateur chefs could often<br />

have been served in top restaurants.<br />

Willi: We hope that our various commitments<br />

will promote and positively influence the topic of<br />

food. After all, we have you as a culinary<br />

specialist. We’re the professionals when it comes<br />

to the best possible kitchen appliances. And<br />

we’ve made a very simple observation, including<br />

in private kitchens: anyone who has ever seen<br />

<strong>BORA</strong> in action says “I totally get it. It really<br />

works.” And these are the best moments of all<br />

for me <strong>–</strong> when we win someone over with our<br />

developments, whether a professional or an<br />

amateur chef.<br />

Those are lucid words. Thanks very much for<br />

speaking to us. We hope you continue to find<br />

lots of energy for your new projects and look<br />

forward to hearing about them.<br />

Where they chat and discuss things. Where<br />

they take important decisions. For the Lietke<br />

family, the kitchen is the centre of their<br />

home. It combines the traditional purpose of<br />

being a place for cooking, eating and drinking<br />

with that of being a lively communication<br />

hub. During the design stage, it was therefore<br />

important to Nicole and Bernd Lietke for the<br />

kitchen to be integrated into the living room<br />

with as few barriers to access and visibility<br />

as possible. And their wish was consistently<br />

implemented.<br />

The Lietkes moved from Ulm to Berlin with their<br />

children Mia and Jonas in 2016 and awoke the<br />

quaint 1936 villa that is their new home from a<br />

long slumber. “The building hadn’t been renovated<br />

for over 50 years and had to be totally refurbished<br />

from scratch”, Bernd tells us. “We tried to<br />

retain as much of its original substance as<br />

possible though <strong>–</strong> and therefore its individual<br />

style and charm.” The result is a cosy, modern<br />

house with plenty of natural light and an overt<br />

sense of purism. Despite this, its history still<br />

shines through.<br />

The kitchen-cum-living room in the family’s<br />

beautiful home is like the command bridge on a<br />

ship. “The fact that our kitchen was the first<br />

thing we chose shows just how important it is to<br />

us”, admits Nicole. “During the renovations, we<br />

essentially planned and designed the house<br />

around the kitchen.”<br />

Anyone visiting the family of four for the first time<br />

will instantly notice a positive and relaxed general<br />

atmosphere. A harmony that is not staged, but<br />

actively experienced on a daily basis. “Eating<br />

meals together is important for family cohesion”,<br />

says Nicole. “We uphold this tradition whenever<br />

possible.” The distribution of roles is also clear.<br />

When at home, Bernd, who has a successful<br />

career as a manager, happily does as he’s told by<br />

“the boss”, as Nicole is referred to by the rest of<br />

the family. Jonas, who is already an ambitious<br />

and skilled amateur chef at the tender age of 13,<br />

is allowed to assist her with the cooking. As firm<br />

family favourites, Italian dishes are often on the<br />

menu. “We make classic, homely German meals<br />

like Spätzle, Schnitzel and Maultaschen too<br />

though”, says Nicole.<br />

The family already has a large circle of friends in<br />

Berlin and often plays host to guests in the<br />

evenings. “We keep everything very casual and<br />

relaxed”, says Bernd. “We also like to spend time<br />

with our guests in the kitchen before we eat.”<br />

While the Lietkes cook, their guests enjoy a glass<br />

of wine or champagne <strong>–</strong> without having to desert<br />

chef Nicole.This may also be due to the kitchen<br />

being so attractive. After all, it is equipped with a<br />

<strong>BORA</strong> Basic extraction system.<br />

“Fitting a <strong>BORA</strong> system<br />

in the kitchen gave us maximum<br />

design freedom.”<br />

BERND LIETKE<br />

“We chose this as it offered us maximum design<br />

freedom”, says Bernd. “If we’d used a conventional<br />

extractor hood, we wouldn‘t have been able to<br />

create the central kitchen island with bar stools,<br />

pendant lights and ample headroom.”<br />

Another advantage, which is particularly important<br />

due to the flowing transition between the kitchen<br />

and the living room, is the efficiency of the <strong>BORA</strong><br />

system. “Even when we’re doing lots of cooking,<br />

the kitchen area remains completely odour free”,<br />

says Bernd. “This makes it a pleasant place to<br />

be.” It also means that guests do not have to<br />

return home with the unwelcome souvenir of<br />

various kitchen odours on their clothes.<br />

“Another important criterion when we chose<br />

58<br />

<strong>BORA</strong> MAGAZINE


<strong>BORA</strong> was how quietly the extractor operates”,<br />

says Bernd. “For example, you can easily listen to<br />

music while cooking. This is a huge advantage.”<br />

His wife Nicole also loves <strong>BORA</strong> Basic’s practical<br />

qualities. “The individual components are<br />

fantastically easy to clean in the dishwasher”, she<br />

enthuses. “That’s convenient and saves time.”<br />

Many of the family’s guests have also become<br />

<strong>BORA</strong> fans too. “Almost everyone instantly<br />

notices the cooktop with its downdraft extractor”,<br />

says Bernd. “A few people have already heard<br />

and read about the system, but to see it in action<br />

first hand is really something else. People are<br />

particularly impressed by its design and aesthetics.”<br />

But there are many other wonderful places in the<br />

Lietke’s home too. For example, the comfy<br />

leather sofa, which is another family hub, or the<br />

armchair by the fireplace, a great place to relax.<br />

“And to read”, says Nicole <strong>–</strong> a hobby that the<br />

whole family is passionate about. But while the<br />

parents like real books with a solid feel, the<br />

children prefer their iPads or smartphones.<br />

A perfectly normal, modern family. But a<br />

particularly amiable one!<br />

CYCLING<br />

EXPERIENCE<br />

The stone that lay at Peter Sagan’s feet at the<br />

Roubaix Velodrome must have been a weight<br />

off the mind of the Slovak world champion<br />

from the <strong>BORA</strong> <strong>–</strong> hansgrohe team. And not<br />

just because the trophy meant he had won<br />

the first cycling monument for his team.<br />

The victory in the Paris<strong>–</strong>Roubaix classic was<br />

also an important step towards a successful<br />

season. 2018 should be a special year for<br />

<strong>BORA</strong> <strong>–</strong> hansgrohe and set the course for<br />

the years to come.<br />

Because despite great success, the end of the<br />

2017 season did not sit well with the <strong>BORA</strong> <strong>–</strong><br />

hansgrohe team. The team had, indeed, won<br />

stages in all the major tours, with 33 professional<br />

wins in total in the palmarès. This was also<br />

accompanied by the world champion rainbow<br />

jersey for Peter Sagan as well as the national<br />

titles in Germany, Austria and Slovakia. But the<br />

unjustified disqualification of Peter Sagan after<br />

the fourth stage of the Tour de France and Rafal<br />

Majka‘s abandonment of the race five days later<br />

shattered all their dreams for the Tour and<br />

diminished the record.<br />

But that‘s history. It‘s time to move on to Paris<strong>–</strong><br />

Roubaix. The Hell of the North classic showed<br />

early on in the year that the team members<br />

are well attuned to each other and the team is<br />

fully operational. The selection of <strong>BORA</strong> <strong>–</strong><br />

hansgrohe was another great leap forward this<br />

season. “Team spirit will play a crucial role in the<br />

first major challenges,” sporting director Enrico<br />

Poitschke had already prophesied at the start of<br />

the season. And so his riders worked tirelessly in<br />

the peloton. Led by Marcus Burghardt, they held<br />

the field together and jointly laid the groundwork<br />

for Peter Sagan. Later on, he took responsibility,<br />

in the field at the Giro<br />

during the long, hard final<br />

climb to the mountain<br />

finish to Caltagirone.<br />

demonstrated his unique leadership qualities<br />

and decided the outcome of the race at the<br />

Roubaix Velodrome in favour of his team.<br />

“Peter is excellent at motivating his squad,” said<br />

Ralph Denk. The team manager knows why his<br />

star is so valuable. “Not only do the riders look<br />

up to him, he also guides and motivates them,<br />

winningly.” The importance of this is shown on<br />

days like those in Roubaix. Because even with<br />

their eyes set on the Tour de France, which is<br />

the absolute highlight of the season, the team<br />

continues to push forward.<br />

Sagan is, indeed, the celebrity star of the<br />

WorldTour. Naturally, his job is not only to win<br />

stages, but also to win the sprint classification<br />

in France for the sixth time in his career. But in<br />

addition to the green jersey, <strong>BORA</strong> <strong>–</strong> hansgrohe<br />

also wanted a good overall placement.<br />

To achieve that, Rafal Majka had to be in the<br />

top 5. And a stage win was also on the wish list<br />

of team manager Ralph Denk. The goals were<br />

ambitious, but his team delivered. Not everything<br />

went exactly according to plan, but there were<br />

some special bonuses. For the domestiques<br />

around Marcus Burghardt, the ambitious goal<br />

meant hard work <strong>–</strong> not only did they have to<br />

look after two captains in France, after a rule<br />

change this year, the teams also had only eight<br />

riders on board.<br />

Peter Sagan had already won the second stage<br />

at La Roche-sur-Yon and got the yellow jersey as<br />

the overall leader. A historical moment for the<br />

team from Raubling, which also brought great<br />

excitement to <strong>BORA</strong> headquarters. As part of<br />

a night-time promotion, a video greeting was<br />

prepared for the team in France in which Willi<br />

Bruckbauer and the staff are shown in yellow<br />

shirts with the hashtag #proudinyellow. Sagan<br />

took the green jersey with his second daily win<br />

on the section from Lorient to Quimper and also<br />

set a new record: over 90 days wearing the<br />

green jersey, a feat that has not been<br />

accomplished by any rider before him.<br />

Nevertheless, this year’s victory in the sprint<br />

classification demanded some particularly hard<br />

work from Sagan, and Peter proved he has a<br />

great fighter’s heart. After falling during the<br />

descent at the 17th stage in the Pyrenees, he<br />

fought his way through extensive abrasions and<br />

heavy bruising throughout the third week to<br />

Paris. After a massive crash on the 9th stage,<br />

Rafal Majka also had a very rough time getting<br />

going again. Especially in the Pyrenees, he<br />

showed grit and, as 19th in the overall ranking,<br />

rode to third place in the mountain classification.<br />

The goals the team set itself might have been<br />

a bit too modest, and this was already evident<br />

early on in the season.

At the Giro d‘Italia, Irishman Sam bennett got<br />

three stage wins. However, one of his greatest<br />

achievements of the race, and above all<br />

a demonstration of absolute fighting spirit, was<br />

at the fourth stage from Catania to Caltagirone.<br />

Bennett finished only in 44th place. But the<br />

sprinter had kept up with the mountain<br />

specialists until shortly before the end despite<br />

the long and arduous final climb to the mountain<br />

finish and made the race exciting. Three days<br />

later, he rewarded himself with the first of three<br />

stage wins on the Giro. The young Austrian,<br />

Patrick Konrad, and Davide Formolo from Italy<br />

got into the top 10 of the overall rankings at the<br />

Giro d’Italia. Pascal Ackermann fooled the<br />

German sprinting elite at the national<br />

championships and the young German Emanuel<br />

Buchmann grabbed everybody’s attention at the<br />

Critérium du Dauphiné. Placed 15th in last year’s<br />

Tour de France, he took sixth place at the main<br />

rehearsal for the „Grande Boucle“, the big loop<br />

Nevertheless, Buchmann was not at the start for<br />

the Tour de France. Because <strong>BORA</strong> <strong>–</strong> hansgrohe<br />

is also about carefully developing young riders.<br />

Coaches, managers and athletes find the space<br />

they need to do their own thing in the shadow<br />

of the world champion Peter Sagan. And so the<br />

25-year-old from Ravensburg will take the lead<br />

role at the Vuelta and lead the <strong>BORA</strong> <strong>–</strong><br />

hansgrohe team. “Emanuel has made a great<br />

leap forward and we are fully motivated to take<br />

the next step with him,” Ralph Denk explained.<br />

In any case, Emanuel Buchmann prefers to ride<br />

when it is warm <strong>–</strong> so the Tour of Spain will be<br />

perfect for his introduction as a team captain.<br />

In the long term, the next step will also be for the<br />

whole team. Short-term successes aside, Denk<br />

and his team also have great plans for the<br />

distant future. Specifically, Ralph Denk wants<br />

to one day win the Tour de France as the team<br />

manager. He has already been world champion,<br />

and has won the most important<br />

one-day classic Paris-Roubaix. Now they have set<br />

their sights on the future. “It would be a dream<br />

come true to ride on the Champs-Élysées with<br />

the number one vehicle.” The cornerstone has at<br />

least been laid.<br />

EXPERIENCE<br />

FROM THE<br />

KITCHENS OF OLD<br />

to the kitchens<br />

of today<br />

You could almost say that the modern kitchen is taking a step<br />

backwards into the pre-modern era. Back to days gone by when<br />

the kitchen was the centre of the home. Back to its roots?<br />

To some extent <strong>–</strong> but completely differently of course!<br />

Photo: werkhaus Küchenideen<br />

Everyday life used to play out in what was known<br />

as the kitchen-cum-living room. This was not just<br />

a place where people cooked and ate, but also<br />

where women sewed, knitted and crocheted,<br />

men read the newspaper and children did their<br />

homework. After all, at least in the autumn/winter<br />

months, the kitchen-cum-living room was often<br />

the only room that was lovely and warm.<br />

My grandparents had this kind of large, cosy<br />

kitchen. I can still remember wonderful Sundays<br />

spent watching and helping out as our grandma<br />

cooked. The aroma of bone-marrow and dumpling<br />

soup, Palatinate roast beef with sauerkraut and<br />

‘Hoorische Knepp’ dumplings would fill the<br />

room <strong>–</strong> and the entire apartment. There was no<br />

extractor hood to interfere with the mouth-watering<br />

odours. With the boom of the economic miracle<br />

though, the built-in kitchen came into fashion.<br />

This was a separate, purely functional room in<br />

which housewives could fully focus on preparing<br />

meals, while awkwardly making their way around<br />

wall units, hot plates and extractor hoods.<br />

Once ready, the meals were passed through a<br />

serving hatch into the dining room. I experienced<br />

this 1960s architecture and interior design<br />

first-hand in my parents’ house. This is how<br />

successful people lived at the time. After eating,<br />

everyone would retire to the sofa in the<br />

separate living room <strong>–</strong> a place for smoking<br />

and for male guests to drink cognac and the<br />

like from huge glasses while the females<br />

sipped on eggnog.<br />

<strong>BORA</strong> MAGAZINE 71


EXPERIENCE<br />

TREND REPORT<br />

In the decades that followed, the functional<br />

boundaries between kitchens, dining rooms and<br />

living rooms gradually broke down again. Eating<br />

and drinking really came into its own in Germany.<br />

Amateur chefs cooking at home treated their<br />

guests to dishes that would not have been out of<br />

place in a Michelin-star restaurant. The kitchen<br />

became a creative workshop <strong>–</strong> as well as a<br />

showpiece visible from the dining area.<br />

Property developers and builders have paid heed<br />

to the change in people’s attitudes towards life<br />

and home living with new architectural styles and<br />

room layouts. This particularly applies in urban<br />

and affluent regions, especially with regard to the<br />

ever-more prevalent single and double-income,<br />

no-kids apartments, which have loft-like floor<br />

plans and are loved by their inhabitants.<br />

Here, the bedroom is no longer just a place to<br />

sleep at night; with a desk in the corner, a cosy<br />

reading area and/or a comfy sofa bed, it is also<br />

used during the day. The bathroom has developed<br />

from a tiled washroom into an oasis of<br />

well-being. Trend researchers even refer to the<br />

bathroom as the new kitchen. Whereas the<br />

kitchen is the new car, as we already know.<br />

Similarly to dining rooms, spectacular living<br />

rooms have lost their purpose. Nowadays, they<br />

largely function as an intimate place for the<br />

family to read, listen to music or watch TV. And<br />

the large dining table is no longer only used for<br />

meals; kids do their homework on it and parents<br />

use it as a temporary desk for working on their<br />

PC, smartphone or tablet. And when guests<br />

come to visit, the entire evening is spent on the<br />

comfortable chairs at the long table. The kitchencum-living<br />

room of yesteryear has essentially<br />

become an all-purpose kitchen.<br />

This is not least thanks to <strong>BORA</strong>’s cooktop<br />

extractor systems, which are gradually banishing<br />

the bulky, annoying monstrosities known as<br />

extractor hoods from houses and apartments.<br />

Instead, active systems at the hob itself suction<br />

vapours into the filter below the cooktop <strong>–</strong><br />

almost invisibly. The ceiling above the cooktop<br />

remains free for strategically placed or simply<br />

attractive lighting, and pictures can hang over<br />

wall-fitted stoves instead of a hood. Architects<br />

and designers love the freedom they are given by<br />

the flexible layouts and the new possibilities. So<br />

too do the inhabitants. Otherwise, this trend of<br />

open-plan living would never have taken off.<br />

With its spectacular new tasting room,<br />

the tradition-steeped Hensel Winery in<br />

Bad Dürkheim is causing quite a stir.<br />

The new showroom opened in July 2017<br />

and architecture fans are already making<br />

the pilgrimage to visit the building, which<br />

presents the central forum of a winery in<br />

a radically different way.<br />

The new showroom seems to float on air. Two<br />

concrete steps provide access to the building,<br />

but the support elements are concealed. What<br />

perfect architecture for wines with names like<br />

‘Aufwind’ (‘Upwind’), ‘Ikarus’ (‘Icarus’) and<br />

‘Höhenflug’ (‘High-altitude flight’)! The connection<br />

to weightlessness and flying is a trademark of<br />

the Hensel Winery. After all, it is located right by<br />

the Bad Dürkheim recreational airport.<br />

“I wanted the new wine shop to go with the<br />

modern overall image”, says Thomas Hensel,<br />

who took over the 24-hectare vineyard in Bad<br />

Dürkheim from his father in 2010 and has also<br />

attracted attention with purist bottle labels.<br />

“The old tasting room was also of high quality,<br />

but a little drab inside”, Thomas Hensel explains.<br />

“The little light that shone through the crown<br />

glass windows was almost completely swallowed<br />

up by the dark oak furnishings.” The new<br />

Openness as a basic<br />

principle: the showroom<br />

kitchen and surrounding<br />

terrace merge into each<br />

other. Half of the glass<br />

frontage can be opened.<br />

showroom also features oak, but in this case a<br />

reddish-brown thermal oak with a finely textured<br />

finish is used to clad the surrounding terrace.<br />

The wood is heat treated to make it more robust.<br />

It is a very rare material as few producers<br />

anywhere in the world are able to thermally<br />

modify oak.<br />

This is just one of the many fascinating details of<br />

this masterpiece by the architect Lars Nicklas,<br />

with whom Thomas Hensel already worked back<br />

in 2011 to renovate the winery’s cellar. Lars<br />

Nicklas does not specialise in buildings for the<br />

wine sector. He had to start by getting a feel for<br />

this world. He joined Thomas Hensel on visits to<br />

multiple wineries with new-builds in order to obtain<br />

insights into how several practical requirements<br />

were dealt with. The two men then worked<br />

together to develop a building that was specifically<br />

and uniquely tailored to the Hensel Winery.<br />

The new-build is all about transparency.<br />

A nine-metre-wide, floor-to-ceiling glazed<br />

frontage virtually brings the vines into the interior.<br />

Half of this frontage can also be opened. “I wanted<br />

to make the showroom clearly visible from the<br />

outside. Everyone can see inside and everyone<br />

can step inside”, says Thomas Hensel. “This<br />

alleviates any fears visitors may have about<br />

entering. Buying wine is a matter of trust.<br />

And the best way to gain people’s trust is through<br />

openness.” As well as through clarity.<br />

“We aim to express the clarity of our wine and<br />

the viticulture process through our winery’s<br />

architecture”, says the 46-year-old owner. The<br />

materials play a role in this. The pavilion walls<br />

are simply rendered, the floor is made of ceramic<br />

tiles and the ceiling is clad in cement-bonded<br />

wood-wool insulation panels. Everything is<br />

very clean and minimalist. The building structure,<br />

design and contents are in perfect harmony,<br />

with a flowing transition between the exterior<br />

and the interior.<br />

In recent years, over 100 new wine shops have<br />

been established in Rhineland-Palatinate. The<br />

showroom at the Hensel Winery is definitely one<br />

of the most impressive. “Viticulture and<br />

architecture have always belonged together”,<br />

explains Thomas Hensel. “You just have to think<br />

about the magnificent châteaus in the Bordelais<br />

region, which still shape the image of Bordeaux<br />

wines today.”<br />

“I wanted the new wine<br />

shop to go with the<br />

modern overall image.”<br />

Thomas Hensel also endeavours to veer off the<br />

beaten track, rethink processes and pursue<br />

innovative directions. In doing this, top quality<br />

is naturally a constant.<br />

It is therefore no surprise that the excellent wines<br />

are also served on the <strong>BORA</strong> Revolution Tour.<br />

The extreme air circulation on<br />

board calls for particularly<br />

powerful extractor systems.<br />

<strong>BORA</strong> MAGAZINE


YACHTS<br />

EXPERIENCE<br />

Thanks to a partnership with the Italian luxury<br />

yacht manufacturer Benetti, you can now<br />

even set sail with <strong>BORA</strong>! Established in 1873,<br />

the tradition-steeped company builds<br />

avant-garde super yachts with lengths of up<br />

to 70 metres for customers all over the world<br />

at its shipyards in Livorno and Viareggio <strong>–</strong> and<br />

uses <strong>BORA</strong> systems for its galley kitchens.<br />

When furnishing exclusive yachts, the highest<br />

of design standards are expected. Not just the<br />

living area, but also the kitchen has to meet<br />

the overall aesthetic requirements of a<br />

premium-class yacht.<br />

It is therefore no surprise that the Benetti<br />

designers got in touch with <strong>BORA</strong>. After all, the<br />

furnishing standards for their yachts are congruent<br />

with those that <strong>BORA</strong> sets for itself: high class is<br />

a must! Pure stainless steel, puristic glass ceramic<br />

and minimalist design language throughout<br />

naturally form the visually compelling basis for<br />

all <strong>BORA</strong> products.<br />

The functionality of galleys is also particularly<br />

important. They are subjected to extreme levels<br />

of strain and have to be fully usable even on the<br />

high seas. This is where the advantages of <strong>BORA</strong><br />

really come into their own.<br />

Above: Benetti yachts are<br />

characterised by premium<br />

aesthetics and maximum<br />

comfort. The company<br />

regards top motorisation<br />

performance as a matter<br />

of course.<br />

Left: The culinary logistics<br />

on board pose specific<br />

challenges. Outdoor dining<br />

areas are part of yacht life.<br />

The kitchen has to be as<br />

close to them as possible.<br />

Right: <strong>BORA</strong>’s highly effective<br />

cooktop extractor ensures<br />

that guests on board the<br />

high-end yacht can fully<br />

enjoy the sea air without<br />

being bothered by any<br />

kitchen odours.<br />

<strong>BORA</strong> MAGAZINE 89


EXPERIENCE<br />

YACHTS<br />

<strong>BORA</strong> eliminates the need<br />

for hazardous superstructures<br />

above galley cooktops.<br />

Highly effective extraction systems are essential<br />

on luxury yachts as annoying odours need to be<br />

avoided under all circumstances. However, the<br />

powerful air circulation on board means that<br />

conventional extractor hoods quickly hit their<br />

performance limits. Due to the large distance<br />

between the cooktop and extractor, it is not<br />

always possible to completely avoid air turbulence.<br />

Furthermore, the corners and sharp edges on<br />

head-height extraction systems pose a risk of<br />

injury to chefs on rough seas. <strong>BORA</strong>, on the<br />

other hand, eliminates the need for hazardous<br />

and annoying superstructures above galley<br />

cooktops. The kitchen is fully visible and chefs<br />

can communicate with one another more easily<br />

because nothing impairs their field of view. As an<br />

added bonus, the <strong>BORA</strong> systems are also far<br />

lighter than extractor hoods.<br />

Another reason to use <strong>BORA</strong> in maritime<br />

environments is that the cooktop extractor<br />

systems are extremely simple to clean. The three<br />

movable parts can be easily dismantled without<br />

any tools and cleaned in the dishwasher.<br />

To complete the list of <strong>BORA</strong> qualities: the<br />

systems operate using extremely quiet motors,<br />

creating less background noise than a frying steak.<br />

This minimises noise pollution for the guests on<br />

board.<br />

Incidentally, plenty of yacht owners are also<br />

passionate amateur chefs and occasionally<br />

release the boat’s chefs from their duties to take<br />

to the stove themselves. In doing so, they too will<br />

experience and appreciate <strong>BORA</strong>’s qualities and<br />

kitchen aesthetics. Even on the high seas, <strong>BORA</strong><br />

offers impressive new options for kitchen design.<br />

Anything is possible.<br />

<strong>BORA</strong> and Benetti <strong>–</strong> a strong team. Anchors<br />

aweigh for a partnership with great potential<br />

for the future!<br />

12 QUESTIONS FOR EXPERIENCE<br />

“You can only<br />

really be creative<br />

if you’ve got the<br />

best equipment.”<br />

Drummer of the rock<br />

band Revolverheld<br />

Photos<br />

VOLKER RENNER,<br />

PEOPLE PICTURE/<br />

NORA GRETHMANN<br />

Text<br />

KLAUDIA MEINERT<br />

Jakob Sinn is the drummer of the rock band<br />

Revolverheld. The thoroughbred musician was<br />

just ten years old when he first started to<br />

learn the drums <strong>–</strong> at the classic place of<br />

music school. Back then, no-one could have<br />

foreseen that he would later become a<br />

member of one of Germany’s most successful<br />

bands. In his spare time, Jakob loves cooking,<br />

preferably in his apartment in Hamburg.<br />

He particularly enjoys doing so with <strong>BORA</strong>.<br />

Time for an interview.<br />

Jakob, you are Revolverheld’s drummer.<br />

We’re intrigued to know if there are any<br />

parallels between cooking and concerts?<br />

Yes, definitely! Both making music and cooking<br />

require a huge amount of creativity. I love starting<br />

to cook things without any real plan, combining<br />

ingredients at will and then trying my own creations<br />

once I’m done. The same applies to music. If all<br />

you do is follow what’s written on the music<br />

without adding your own ideas, you’ll ultimately<br />

just play songs without any unique character.<br />

How do you keep yourselves fit when<br />

you’re on tour?<br />

Healthy eating is important to us. In the past, we<br />

often used to just eat potato salad and sausages.<br />

Now, we’re lucky enough to take our own kitchen<br />

team on tour with us. We tend to start the day<br />

with a fresh smoothie, lunch comprises plenty of<br />

salad or pasta and dinner usually involves a fish<br />

dish or lean meat. We’re also careful to ensure that<br />

meals are made from organic, regional products.<br />

What do you tend to eat between concerts?<br />

I’m a huge fan of Asian food. It’s extremely varied<br />

<strong>–</strong> although that’s something people here often<br />

might not realise. Many of the dishes that you get<br />

in restaurants here are nothing like the originals.<br />

Tell us a little about what you do in your<br />

spare time. Do you still play the drums at<br />

home or only in the studio?<br />

I find cooking a great way to relax. When I’m at<br />

home, I’m often happy to swap my drumsticks for<br />

spoons, which my neighbours thank me for too...<br />

In addition to music and cooking, I’m extremely<br />

passionate about photography. I’m also a huge<br />

fan of the Hamburg football team HSV, although<br />

that’s not been much fun in recent years.<br />

Nevertheless, I’m still a regular at the Volkspark<br />

stadium when we’re not on the road.<br />

Your new album comes out on 13 April and is<br />

called ‘Zimmer mit Blick’ (‘A room with a<br />

view’). That brings us to another question:<br />

which is your favourite room at home?<br />

That’s a good question. As we spend a lot of time<br />

on the road, I simply enjoy being at home <strong>–</strong><br />

regardless of which room I’m in. But as my living<br />

and dining areas are essentially one room, that’s<br />

where I spend most time.<br />

Do you have to be in a certain place<br />

to be creative?<br />

No, definitely not. Most of my inspiration comes<br />

to me when I’m on the road. I love travelling,<br />

getting new perspectives on things and<br />

experiencing new ways of life. This not only<br />

applies to music, but also to photography and,<br />

of course, to eating and cooking. Despite this,<br />

it’s extremely important for me to have<br />

somewhere to relax. That’s part of any creative<br />

process for me too.<br />

You set high standards for your new kitchen.<br />

Why did you choose <strong>BORA</strong>?<br />

This is another point where there are parallels to<br />

music. To optimally implement my ideas and<br />

truly focus on what really matters, I need the<br />

right equipment in all areas. When I moved home<br />

a few months ago, I did a fair bit of research into<br />

kitchens and was impressed with the <strong>BORA</strong><br />

products from moment I saw them. I’m a huge<br />

fan now.<br />

What’s your favourite thing to cook?<br />

One of the places that my last major trip took me<br />

was Myanmar, where I also attended a cookery<br />

course. Since then, I’ve been cooking Burmese<br />

curry for both myself and my friends. I also<br />

regularly enjoy cooking Bolognese, which a good<br />

friend from Italy gave me the recipe for a few<br />

years ago. That can simmer on the stove for a<br />

good three or four hours though.<br />

As a drummer, do you listen to music<br />

while cooking?<br />

Yes, definitely: everything from the Beatles or<br />

Miles Davis to electronic music.<br />

But you don’t sing while cooking though?<br />

Only if no-one is listening!<br />

Do you ever get inspiration while cooking?<br />

For me, all creative activities go together somehow<br />

and inspire each other. As such, cooking definitely<br />

has an influence on my music. I don’t have<br />

specific ideas while cooking though.<br />

What culinary temptation is simply<br />

irresistible for you?<br />

I always love a good pho, a type of Vietnamese<br />

noodle soup! That’s something that I could quite<br />

happily eat all day.<br />

The <strong>BORA</strong> Revolution Tour<br />

shows guests the skyline<br />

from a new perspective<br />

while top culinary<br />

professionals such as<br />

<strong>BORA</strong> Cooking Chef Luigi<br />

Cassago treat them to a<br />

3-course meal. The cube<br />

has a particularly romantic<br />

feel in the evening.<br />

<strong>BORA</strong>’s success is based on questioning<br />

‘normal’ perspectives. The company gives<br />

itself the freedom to transform dreams into<br />

reality <strong>–</strong> whether with technology that makes<br />

monstrous extractor hoods unnecessary<br />

when cooking or through the commitment<br />

of top road cyclist Peter Sagan to the <strong>BORA</strong> <strong>–</strong><br />

hansgrohe team. The Revolution Tour also<br />

enables <strong>BORA</strong> to fulfil the eternal desire<br />

to stand out from the crowd. In a cube,<br />

hovering 30 metres above the ground,<br />

guests are offered haute cuisine in the<br />

truest sense of the word.<br />

The moment that the cube lifts off the ground is<br />

always very special for Rudi Hager. The <strong>BORA</strong><br />

event manager is a constant companion of the<br />

<strong>BORA</strong> Revolution Tour, and is on site in all of the<br />

European cities visited by ‘<strong>BORA</strong> in the air’.<br />

“Every event involves a huge amount of logistics”,<br />

says Rudi Hager. “With its trailer, the truck on<br />

which the cube is transported is 19 metres long<br />

and weighs 40 tonnes.” As such, several things<br />

have to be carefully checked in advance: Can<br />

the ground, road surface and bridges bear this<br />

huge weight? Will the truck get round all the<br />

bends? Are there things such as street lights<br />

that might get in the way of lifting the cube?<br />

The responsibility that rests on Rudi Hager’s<br />

shoulders is as great as the promotional event is<br />

spectacular. The show container holds 18 guests<br />

and two <strong>BORA</strong> employees. The hoist cable and<br />

four steel chains from which the container is<br />

suspended have to bear the weight of these<br />

people plus the tare weight of 11.8 tonnes. As a<br />

result, a safety official who goes on tour with the<br />

team inspects every last centimetre of the cable,<br />

chains and all load-bearing parts prior to each event.<br />

Safety comes first. This also applies to the crane,<br />

<strong>BORA</strong> in the air is in tune<br />

with the company philosophy:<br />

nothing is unthinkable.<br />

which is rented locally. “It has to have a wind<br />

gauge and an emergency lowering system”,<br />

explains Rudi Hager. “This often makes it far<br />

from easy to find a suitable crane near the event<br />

location.” Despite all the meticulous checks,<br />

no-one is ever allowed to be in the cube when it<br />

is first hoisted into the air at each new site.<br />

When the guests do then step on board this fully<br />

air-conditioned mini spaceship, however, they<br />

experience an event in a class of its own.<br />

<strong>BORA</strong> chef Armin Auer creates culinary surprises<br />

for the guests in the show kitchen, in which all<br />

three <strong>BORA</strong> systems are integrated. He is often<br />

accompanied in his work by famous guest chefs.<br />

The dishes are served with excellent wines from<br />

the Hensel Winery in Rhineland-Palatinate.<br />

Once high in the air, guests can learn about the<br />

advantages of the <strong>BORA</strong> system both in theory<br />

and in practice. There could be no more<br />

impressive proof that kitchens quite literally have<br />

no bounds with <strong>BORA</strong>.<br />

“The basic idea for this highly acclaimed marketing<br />

tool came from <strong>BORA</strong> founder Willi Bruckbauer”,<br />

explains Rudi Hager. “He wanted to design the<br />

cycling team’s catering vehicle as transparently<br />

as possible as he felt it was important for people<br />

to be able to see what happens inside.”<br />

And since nothing is unthinkable according to<br />

<strong>BORA</strong>’s company policy, the concept soon<br />

developed into the idea of a floating bistro, which<br />

is also available to distribution partners and

Compact unit comprising a powerful cooktop and an effective<br />

cooktop extractor.<br />

Cooktop and extractor can be simply and intuitively<br />

operated using a central touch control.<br />

Large cooking zones make it possible to cook with two large pans<br />

behind one another despite the compact system dimensions.<br />

A low installation height and the integrated recirculating air filter<br />

unit enable optimum use of the space available in the floor unit.<br />

Flush installation or surface mounting, now also with a brushed<br />

Exhaust system<br />

Suitable for all <strong>BORA</strong> cooktop extractor systems<br />

Recirculation system<br />

Suitable for all <strong>BORA</strong> cooktop extractor systems<br />

The advantage of exhaust air<br />

With the <strong>BORA</strong> exhaust system, the fan channels cooking vapours straight<br />

outside through the <strong>BORA</strong> Ecotube duct system and the <strong>BORA</strong> 3box wall<br />

sleeve. This removes all vapours and odours from the cooking area. As,<br />

unlike conventional extractor hoods, all <strong>BORA</strong> systems use intelligent flow<br />

technology rather than a high flow volume, less warm inside air is expelled<br />

from the house, thereby saving energy.<br />

The advantage of recirculation<br />

The <strong>BORA</strong> recirculation system is the alternative solution to exhaust-air<br />

variants. The fan directs the cooking vapours into the specially developed<br />

ULB1, ULB3 or BAKFS (Basic only) recirculation filters, which effectively<br />

eliminate odours from the kitchen exhaust air. As such, the <strong>BORA</strong><br />

recirculation systems keep the air in kitchens fresh. As the recirculation<br />

systems keep the warm air in the house, they are ideal for passive houses<br />

as well as low and nearly zero-energy buildings.<br />

Cooking in recirculation mode<br />

Humidity when cooking in recirculation mode<br />

Putting the recirculation mode to the test<br />

Extensive internal tests have proven that, subject to proper planning and<br />

installation, there is no relevant increase in humidity inside the adjacent<br />

kitchen units when operating <strong>BORA</strong> cooktop extractors in recirculation mode.<br />

This means that there is no risk of normal cooking sessions causing moisture<br />

damage to kitchen units or even mould formation. If the indoor environment<br />

is kept within the limits of what feels comfortable, the critical level of 80 %<br />

rel. humidity for such damage will not be exceeded at any point.<br />

<strong>BORA</strong> cooktop extractors and recirculation systems are optimally tailored to<br />

one another. The cooktop extractor has an automatic after-run function to<br />

ensure not only sufficient air exchange but also the optimum performance<br />

and service life of the recirculating filter.<br />
