The kitchen design experts at Poggenpohl and celebrity chef Eric Ripert launched The Eric Ripert Kitchen by Poggenpohl to kickoff Modenus Blog Tour N.Y. 2012. A group of international design bloggers and New York media got an exclusive look at the groundbreaking and eco-friendly kitchen concept. The social media event was sponsored by Poggenpohl, BLANCO and Modenus.com.
The Eric Ripert Kitchen by Poggenpohl demonstrates how the celebrity chef’s own personal vision for a world-class restaurant kitchen can be reinvented for the at-home chef. Over 30 design editors met with the Poggenpohl design team who brought the Ripert concept to life in a beautiful contemporary and eco-friendly design with distinct and functional details for cooking and entertaining at home.
The interactive and educational event also included the launching of innovative products including the BLANCO CERANA Fireclay Apron Front Sink and Poggenpohl’s +ARTESIO Kitchen.
“It was a pleasure to work with one of the most revered designers to create a beautiful kitchen that is not only gorgeous but is the most efficient possible in allowing you to craft a perfect meal in your home and to create convivial atmosphere around the table,” states Eric Ripert.
