Cooling that makes an architectural statement

Showcasing crafted heritage, flawless design and exceptional performance, Gaggenau presents the new Vario cooling 400 series. Cooling that makes an architectural statement.

Gaggenau, the international and luxury professional-grade kitchen appliance manufacturer, unveiled the brand new Vario cooling 400 series this week at its showroom in Kramerville. A fully integrated, built-in modular range of refrigerators, freezers, fridge-freezers and wine-climate cabinets, which can be partnered to meet an array of interior needs. The imposing, progressive design of this range commands visual admiration, whilst maintaining integral professional capabilities.
Inspired by grand architectural structures, the new Vario cooling 400 series has been designed for those who appreciate the aesthetically advanced look. Combining modularity with the smooth lines of seamless integration, these sculpted appliances redefine the landscape of the functional kitchen.

The Vario cooling 400 series variations are most impressive when combined to form an imposing cooling wall that integrates into the overall kitchen structure. An expanse of handle-less doors with individual furniture fronts, stainless steel or glass doors for wine climate cabinets, presents a statement in any private kitchen. The doors open to reveal complete stainless steel interior and dark anthracite anodised aluminium elements. Imperceptible clear glass shelving and solid aluminium door racks are further complemented by the atmospheric glow from the warm white, glare-free LED lights.

Throughout the newly launched series, Gaggenau debuts the exceptional assist opening system. Push to open, the handle-less door now has the mechanism that will open the portal for you. Even the door’s ice and water dispenser anticipates your needs and activates the light and touch keys automatically as you approach, thanks to its ingenious proximity sensor.

Taking inspiration from the oak barrels used to age wine, the Vario wine climate cabinets 400 series features telescopic rails, which allow oak and dark anthracite aluminium, bottle trays to extend for gentle handling. Further safeguards for the wine connoisseur’s valued collection are provided by the cabinet’s low vibration compressor, the humidity regulator and the activated charcoal air filter, which protects the wine from odour contamination.
Up to three independently controlled climate zones can be adjusted via the newly designed intuitive TFT display, so that part of your wine collection can be stored in cellar-like conditions while bottles that could be enjoyed now, can be served on demand. Additionally, Gaggenau has further enhanced the Vario wine climate cabinets 400 series to include five pre-set lighting scenarios, perfect for highlighting prized collections.
Gaggenau believes that the kitchen is the heart and soul of the home and the products you choose to perform perfectly and integrate seamlessly. The new Vario cooling 400 series are kitchen appliances pioneering the way for functional art that fits into the lifestyle of the discerning and cultured individual.

Sven Baacke, Head of Design, Global Brand Gaggenau, comments: “This new range for Gaggenau is the very essence of refinement in the luxury kitchen appliance market. We see extraordinary interior aesthetics as something that should be seen in all spheres of life, including the kitchen. With the new range, every wish for an extraordinary interior space is fulfilled. Staged beautifully and with perfect illumination, you are no longer simply storing wine or refrigerating, you are making a statement.”

To complement the grand reveal of the new Vario cooling 400 series Gaggenau collaborated with likeminded luxury brands. The launch event highlights Maserati’s icon, the Gran Cabrio as well as the Levante and Quattro Porte.
The Beoplay A9, Beosound Edge and Beosound 2 high-end wiresless speakers from the luxury Danish consumer electronic company, Bang & Olufsen, provides the discerning individual with seamless sound and music at the Gaggenau showroom.
Lastly, a selection of fine international imported wines from Great Domaines provides guests with the perfect accompaniment to the evening.
