Miele Obsidian Matt Black

Miele launches sleek Obsidian Matt Black finish

For the height of luxurious living, predicted trends for 2024’s kitchens move away from the maximalist look to something altogether more sleek, serene and subtle. It’s all about creating a calm, uncluttered space for cooking and dining and with this in mind, black is set to be big news for 2024. This dramatic tone can enhance a modern minimalist vibe, whether used for cabinetry, worksurfaces or appliances.

Another strong look is to combine matt and gloss finishes, and this is where premium appliance manufacturer Miele has the perfect solution with its new built-in series finished in Obsidian Matt Black.

Tom Hopper, category manager for Kitchens at Miele GB, adds, “Our new Obsidian Matt Black collection captures the essence of contemporary kitchen design, offering a sleek and modern edge while embracing the trend for darker cabinetry and matt finishes in 2024.”

The new collection comprises an oven, compact microwave combination oven, combination steam ovens (in 45cm and 60cm sizes), warming drawer and sous-vide drawer, as well as bean to cup coffee machines. The new built-in series will be complemented by induction hobs and a cooker hood.

The new Obsidian Matt Black built-in collection is based on the ArtLine handleless range from Miele featuring large M-Touch displays and Touch2Open technology. The Matt Black glass finish is sleek, streamlined, low maintenance and easy to clean with a simple solution of washing-up liquid and water with a microfibre cloth. This elegant new finish will give kitchens a premium look and feel, enhancing contemporary designs and giving classic styles a sleek and modern edge. It also looks stunning in open-plan schemes, where a pure and minimal style is key. Designed to enhance the trend for matt finishes and darker colour schemes, the new Miele collection is set to take kitchens to the next level.

The new collection, which is based on the handleless ArtLine range, has full-surface velvety glass fronts with integrated displays and Touch2Open technology with a simple tap on the sensor integrated into the control panel.

“ArtLine in Obsidian Matt Black offers kitchen planners a world of opportunities – blending in harmoniously with dark styles, setting accents against a lighter backdrop, but always handleless and striking,” says Ina Laukötter, vice president of Miele’s category – marketing business unit cooking.

To complement the new collection, Miele is also introducing MattFinish induction hobs with a new matt ceramic glass surface. As well as aesthetically enhancing the Obsidian Matt Black finish of the built-in appliances, the new purist hobs are highly scratch resistant with a matt finish and anti-fingerprint surface.

This new Obsidian Matt Black collection is perfect for embracing 2024’s trends for darker cabinetry, surfaces and appliances and the on-trend matt black look.
