ArtLine Handle-Less Built-In Appliances

About the Entry

Flush glass fronts and touch displays on ovens, steam combination ovens, speed ovens, as well as a coffee machine and gourmet warming drawers allow entire kitchens to be designed without a single handle. The portfolio includes two specification levels, which are available in obsidian black or graphite grey.

Features & Benefits

01

Form

Pure, linear designs epitomise modern living and today’s lifestyle. Unmistakable aesthetics captivate the imagination of architects and interior designers alike.

Timeless elegance, injecting lifestyle into rooms and turning the kitchen into a design masterpiece.

Miele’s product designers have brought this vision to life: Miele ArtLine is the first Designer range of built-in kitchen appliances for completely flush installation.

Function

Since, technically, the ArtLine series is based on Miele’s current Generation 6000 of built-in appliances which comprises many different products, we have intentionally refrained from listing any model-specific functional details here.

Quality

Made by Miele in Germany, the ArtLine series of built-in appliances is designed and tested for a useful product life of 20 years under normal household use.

The fact that Miele products are used longer in the home than other brands before being resold or disposed of due to a defect was validated in a 2006 study performed by the German consumer research organisation GfK: according to this study, new Miele appliances remained in use after their initial purchase for an average of 17.0 years, whilst the average useful life of other brands was only 13.7 years.

Commerciality

Given their superior technology and long life expectancy, the initial investment in this latest range of Miele built-in cooking appliances does represent outstanding value for money in the long term.

In view of the fact that the well-established range of Miele Generation 6000 cooking appliances has already proven its commercial viability on international markets, as well as in Australia, for many years, Miele is confident of also achieving a positive return on the investment for these latest models.

Innovation

Technically, ArtLine models are based on current Miele built-in appliances – with one significant difference: The function of the handle on a conventional model is assumed by a sensor integrated into the fascia panel (Touch2open).

Gently touching this sensor opens the motor-assisted door, damping its action as it reaches the fully open position.

Customers can choose between two ArtLine versions: Price-entry models feature Miele’s DirectSensor controls whilst top-of-the-range offerings boast an M Touch display which is reminiscent of a smartphone in the way it interacts with its user and also offers a practical search function for automatic programmes. Both versions are entirely without control knobs.

Key Sustainability Design Features and Benefits

To facilitate the disassembly and sorting of metals and other materials, Miele has reduced the number of different metals and screw types it uses and labels plastic parts in accordance with the ISO 11469 international standard.

The recyclability of Miele’s packaging materials is also an important factor. Miele uses primarily carboard, wood, EPS and polyethylene foil in the packaging of its domestic appliances.
