The Fourth Wall

The Fourth Wall is a ground breaking concept kitchen from Poggenpohl that incorporates high-grade cooking appliances from Electrolux Grand Cuisine.

Lapitec’s Ebano, Vesuvio features on the main stage of this theatrical kitchen as the 6m2 island and worktops.

"For decades, kitchen design has been about concealing every element. Instead I drew my inspiration for The Fourth Wall from early kitchens where function informed the layout. In The Fourth Wall, the preparation of ingredients and the cooking process become theatre for today’s passionate home cooks, while the eclectic mix of textures and finishes, plus the creative use of lighting, engages with the senses and engenders an emotional response" Andrew Hays, for House & Garden magazine.

The Fourth Wall, with it’s blend of lacquer, brass, engineered stone and leather, together with the mirrored finish of Grand Cuisine’s appliances, provides a dramatic and modern kitchen. A concept that will define the kitchens of the future.
