Luxury meets luxury

Ritz Hotel and Porsche Design kitchen P´7340

Paris Ritz gives its most expensive suite a Porsche Design kitchen

The legendary Ritz Hotel on the Place Vendôme in Paris is now offering its well-travelled guests a further highlight: fully renovated, the largest suite in the famous establishment has been fitted out with a Porsche Design kitchen from Poggenpohl.

Ritz Hotel and Porsche Design kitchen P´7340To guarantee an exclusive ambience offering unequalled luxury and convenience in the most expensive suite, the managers of the Ritz decided in favour of Porsche Design kitchen P´7340. The 200 square-metre Imperial Suite boasts two bedrooms, a living room, kitchen and bathroom (costing 10,000 euros a night). The suite's regular guests include European and Arab royal families. The front of the Porsche Design kitchen is finished in Driftwood to match the rest of the interior. Driftwood, a brushed pine that beautifully imitates its namesake, has a natural-feeling touch and blends perfectly into the colours and atmosphere of the suite. A black worktop in satin-finish glass provides an exciting contrast to the warm Driftwood frontage. The innovative frame construction from aluminium, as the material characteristic of the Porsche Design brand, forms the backbone of the kitchen, uniting the materials of wood and glass to create a sophisticated, practical design that's purist in looks.

A particularly impressive feature of the luxury kitchens are the handleless units with a precision system that automatically opens them in response to a nudge and closes them again after they are given a slight push. Doing away with handles emphasises the furniture's uncompromisingly purist look.
