While this year’s IFA trade show played host to a range of understated appliance designs (slim refrigerators from Samsung, minimalist ovens and rangehoods from Siemens, button-free dishwashers from Bosch), there were also brands that were happy to steer away from the pared back ‘form follows function’ ethos.

One brand to embrace a little extravagance in its cooking appliance design was Beko. The Turkish brand (which hit Australian shores last year) has pared up with Spanish designer Patricia Urquiola to design a new range of cooktops, ovens and rangehoods ideal for aesthetes.

The Cast Line range was unveiled at IFA, and features earthy copper tones and cast iron detailing to that brings a softer look to the kitchen than many of the stainless-steel product ranges currently on the market. According to Urquiola, the design process was all about “using the technical advances of Beko in a warm way”.

The range is divided into three parts – Star (ovens), Crown (rangehoods) and Web (hobs) – and these names help to describe the shapes that are seen across the products, with star-shaped trivets, webbed lattice designs and angular lines heavily influencing the look of each appliance.

While there is no word yet on whether the appliances will make it to the Australian market, the designs would certainly provide a point of difference on the retail floor.

The hobs were matched with wooden accessories and copper pots to add some warmth.
