“We are thrilled to receive yet another award for Kinvaro T-Slim," commented Albert Trebo, Managing Director at GRASS. “With Kinvaro T-Slim we have developed a product that is truly unique on the market, and its design opens up possibilities that no other product offers.”


Kinvaro T-Slim is the thinnest, most efficient flap system GRASS has ever developed. It combines purist aesthetics, a very stable construction and the art of perfect movement in an exemplary manner. The flap system blends almost invisibly into the furniture, opening up new possibilities for wall cabinets and offering furniture designers and constructors maximum flexibility. In addition to the aesthetic benefits, this minimalism also has a further advantage: The flap system requires very little space, so that the available storage space can be optimally utilised.
