rational-sheffieldThe tranquility exuded by a Japanese garden – combined with traditional wood craftsmanship and technical finesse. In keeping with the Zen tradition, in this “special edition” of our handle-less kitchen the natural balance of forces plays the leading role.


Arctic white as well as the extravagant and exceptional bookmatched veneer terra limed oak lend tio zen its own distinct natural aura of serenity. Together with steel and concrete an unbeatable combination.



In this architecturally outstanding handle-less solution rational uses new side panel steel profiles. The overall impression is particularly elegant thanks to the finely tuned interplay of high-gloss lacquer and shades of grey. The shelving, for example, presents itself in an elegant platinum grey, the worktop decor in concrete-look.


Concrete, a cool-to-the-touch material, once the favourite of purist designers, increasingly influences the appearance of accessory components.


For avant-gardists and lovers of an ultra-modern and geometrical design this tio kitchen with its myriad of decorative yet at the same time practical elements opens up a new world of experiences and communications. Adapting precisely to the respective room architecture in depth, width and height, flexible built-in shelving utilizes every last corner.


The elegant tall end shelving is a special design feature. Combined with a tall cabinet, it forms a particularly effective unit, since the tall cabinet door additionally assumes the function of an elegant shelving side panel. tio’s striking play of colours and woods is an attraction.


Camee high-gloss lacquer, the glossy colour shade honey and the worktop decor oak noir combine to form a triumphant trio. Even the smallest of details, such as the recessed grips, are perfectly coordinated with the furniture fronts. The communicative centre of this modern design is without doubt the tio bench in front of the island arrangement.


Not only offering ample seating, it also allows a good view of the personal decorative items on display – a joy to behold by both host and guest.
