We spotted the N by Naber Concept Kitchen at Maison & Objet in Paris, where we learned that Naber is a family-run German kitchen company founded in 1948. Naber has spent an incredible amount of time and money perfecting the smallest engineering details, like a rubber stopper that allows a user to raise or lower a shelf with ease.

The idea is that a highly customizable, well-designed kitchen can be feasible for renters as well as homeowners. (It's common in Europe to own your appliances, and take them with you when you move.) Photo by Marc Krause.

Designer Kilian Schindler was working on a design for a coatrack, as well as a project on allotment gardens, which yielded a metal frame based on trellises you would find in a garden. It caught the eye of the Naber family, who approached Schindler about adapting his concept into a full-fledged kitchen. Photo by Markus Burke.

The basic framework for the modular kitchen series is, according to Schindler, "orderly, reduced, and minimalistic." It's adaptable to the consumer's specific needs depending on what kind of materials and add-ons one chooses; figure out pricing in advance using Naber's online configurator.

By pairing with Tolix, Naber taps into the company's longstanding position as a leader in industrial furniture that "consciously deploys the coarse charm of indestructible objets as a foil to perfectly staged interiors." It also means a combination of looks and engineering.
