Häfele teams up with Regal Kitchens and Vauth Sagel for student workshop


Furniture fittings and architectural hardware specialist, Häfele, recently teamed up with Chelmsford-based kitchen studio Regal Kitchens and German manufacturer Vauth Sagel to host a kitchen design workshop for Southend University Interior Design students.

The event was hosted by Regal Kitchens, one of Häfele’s Studio Partners, in the company’s Chelmsford showroom. It was held to give the students who have recently begun a three-year Interior Design course an insight into kitchen design and to help them decide whether to specialise in the field.

Experts from both Häfele and Vauth Sagel were in attendance and gave talks about the importance of maximising kitchen space and the space-saving solutions available when designing a new kitchen. The students were then challenged to design a kitchen incorporating storage solutions.

At the end of the day, the students presented their completed designs to the experts for feedback and a winning design was chosen.

Matt Lissaman, Regional Sales Manager at Häfele UK, commented, “I really enjoyed meeting the students and talking to them about the different aspects of kitchen design. Coming down to the studio allowed them to experience a range of different products first-hand and explore how they can be incorporated into the kitchen. Their enthusiasm and ideas were truly refreshing.”

He continued, “not only was it an interactive, informative experience for the students, it was also great to work alongside both our Studio Partner and one of our trusted suppliers to give back to the local community.”

Emma Mcloughlin, Business Development Manager at Regal Kitchens, commented, “we try and organise an event every six months for the students to learn about kitchen design. Having talks from Häfele and Vauth Sagel were a great way to demonstrate to the students the supply chain involved here at Regal Kitchens.”

Häfele is an innovative specialist in furniture fittings and solutions, accessories, ironmongery and hardware. Established in Germany in 1923, the company now has an international presence and offers a range of over 25,000 products.
