A WORLD OF FLAVOR Chef Ludo Lefebvre introduced the US to a new way of eating. Backed by a state-of-the-art Fisher & Paykel kitchen, he’s still at the cutting edge of LA’s thriving restaurant scene. Ludo is a true prodigy in the kitchen. After training under some of France’s top chefs, he developed a unique culinary style that he describes as “French with an international flavor”. It’s a style that has translated brilliantly to the US. Ludo’s popular Los Angeles eatery, Petit Trois, offers a relaxed “bar-a-la-carte” experience where diners drop by for a drink and a plate in chic, relaxed surroundings. Well before Petit Trois opened its doors in 2014, Ludo’s reputation was sealed. After making the move to the US in 1996, he worked as an executive chef at two of LA’s most famous restaurants, L’Orangerie and Bastide. Ludo soon developed a reputation for whipping up innovative dishes such as Poularde Marinated in Pepsi-Cola with Popcorn.

His ability to combine old-world techniques with new-world creativity set him apart from the competition and earned him the prestigious Mobil Travel Guide Five Star Award at both restaurants.

A TRUE INNOVATOR Not one to rest on his laurels, Chef Ludo then introduced a completely new concept in dining. Taking over his friend’s bakery for the three months when it would usually be closed, he created special event dining experiences which ultimately became known as LudoBites and were described by one critic as “a transforming moment in the Los Angeles restaurant scene”. The pop-up restaurant concept proved wildly popular and subsequent LudoBites events throughout the city sold out quickly.

FROM FOOD TRUCK TO FINE DINING Ludo’s next big venture was the humble food truck. Selling his own special brand of fried chicken on the streets was another successful venture and, soon after, he opened a LudoBird restaurant inside the STAPLES center to cater for hungry sports fans. With his reputation as one of the world’s most inventive chefs established, Ludo opened his first fine dining restaurant to rave reviews. Trois Mec earned four stars from both Los Angeles Magazine and LA Weekly and was named Esquire Magazine’s Best New Restaurant List for 2013. The restaurant also earned the top spot on Food & Wine Magazine’s Best Restaurant Dishes of the Year for 2013.

WHERE THE MAGIC HAPPENS Ludo’s passion for creating the world’s finest food starts in his home kitchen. Surrounded by quality appliances from Fisher & Paykel, Ludo is able to create and experiment to his heart’s content. Featuring equipment such as a self-cleaning built-in oven, gas and induction cooktops, an integrated refrigerator and a Double DishDrawer™ Dishwasher inside his indoor kitchen, plus a DCS 36” grill with all the trimmings in his outdoor kitchen, Ludo has all the tools he needs to create his next culinary masterpiece.

MIND THE GAP The new family-sized Fisher & Paykel integrated refrigerators offer the flexibility of different finishes, allowing a smooth, clean, built-in look. Choose from stainless steel or custom panelling to match your cabinetry. 1/8"

NO MORE GAPS One of the challenges with freestanding fridges is the gaps required for door clearances and ventilation. Fisher & Paykel’s integrated series minimizes gaps to just 1/8", creating consistent lines throughout the kitchen.

REAL INTEGRATION Contemporary kitchens are social living spaces. Part of this evolution is increasingly refined design, flush fit cabinetry and appliances that enhance ergonomics. These models provide options to either showcase through crisp stainless steel or integrate with custom panel finishes.

EASY INSTALLATION Designed for the best possible fit and finish into new or existing cabinetry, this refrigerator allows for multiple angles of adjustment for door panels. All four feet can be adjusted from the front and adjustable door skins allow the fine-tuning of minimal gaps as kitchen cabinets settle after initial installation.

DESIGN WITHIN REACH Up until now, integrated refrigeration has been unattainable for many. This new refrigeration series has been developed to set new benchmarks in design refinement, quality and value.

Custom panel is indicative only. 36" x 72" cavity required

BUILT FOR ENTERTAINING Architect Nick Deaver Materials Benchtop: Corian and raw steel The owners of this home in Austin, Texas in the United States came across local architect Nick Deaver in a book called Not So Big Houses. Championing principles of sustainable design and building just to the size needed, the clients found a likeminded designer to create a modern home for their young family. Rollingston is an established, leafy township in Texas only minutes from Austin’s central city. With large oaks and maples and generous lawns, connecting to the outdoors was a central consideration in the owner’s brief for the house. This can be seen in the balconies protruding from the upstairs bedrooms and the open plan layout of the kitchen and living spaces that flow into the yard. Materials have been drawn from the exterior into the interior with the smooth, raw steel from the

windows folded into the kitchen island and the light grey stucco of the ground floor exterior mimicked in the smooth plaster walls. The kitchen has been designed as an elongated box, clad in western red cedar that penetrates through the glass, projecting to form the pantry, which sits outside of the line of the house. The kitchen sits within the dining and living space and was imagined as an intricate Chinese puzzle box. Crafted like fine cabinetry, the cedar anchors the kitchen as a focal point in the house and draws family and guests into the kitchen. “ Why do you have trouble keeping people out of the kitchen at parties?” Nick asks. “Because you’re in the kitchen and people want to be with the host.” To this end, designing the kitchen to be part of the living space so that

WE’RE COOKS TOO OUR ENGINEERS, DESIGNERS, TECHNICIANS AND PRODUCT TESTERS ARE ALL PASSIONATE ABOUT MIXING, BAKING, ROASTING AND ENTERTAINING They know the disappointment when a cake sinks or when some biscuits burn while others are undercooked. They channelled these personal frustrations and hopes into the design of our builtin ovens. Exhaustive testing of every function has impressed even our toughest critics – our own designers. As we recorded insights into how people use their ovens, our designers and engineers thought of ways we could solve each problem. Our engineers went back to basics. Rather than tweaking the existing design to work a little better, they started at the beginning. Our aim was to perfect each part, then put Chief Designer Lauren Palmer

different materials were essential. Our engineers worked up from abstract physics and chemistry to create ideal prototypes for each oven element before we even started thinking about design. Without the constraints of an existing chassis or look, we have been able to make numerous small and large leaps in innovation to create the platform. Our designers and engineers keep one key idea central: what is best for the customer? As Mitchell says, “Any good design is the optimum mix of what a customer benefits from and what’s possible. You can’t have one without the other.” For more about the final product see page 31.

New Zealand is justifiably famous for spectacular scenery, cultural diversity and local film director Peter Jackson’s epic take on Middle Earth. What is less well known is that New Zealand is also the home of a truly revolutionary piece of industrial design. It’s a story that’s almost as compelling as a J.R.R. Tolkien novel – albeit with fewer dragons and a decidedly domestic slant. 25

They haven’t yet. Two decades after its debut, this innovative appliance is in its prime; its original benefits honed and new features added. Over 1.25 million have been manufactured and sold in more than 20 countries worldwide.

It has cemented its reputation as a design classic, scooped numerous top industry and consumer choice awards, and continued to build global market share.

There’s more to come in 2016, including the 20th anniversary of the DishDrawer™ Dishwasher. The latest models are quieter and more energy and water-efficient than ever. They’re more durable, thanks to Fisher & Paykel’s rigorous testing for 20 years’ continuous use. They’re also beautiful, with an emphasis on sleek lines and quality construction, and incorporate clever features such as flexible stacking and sanitise mode. That’s worth a 20th birthday toast or three.

DESIGNED FOR LIVING Architect Malcolm Walker Architects Kitchen manufacturer Customtone Kitchens Materials Benchtop: concrete and stainless steel; handles: stainless steel This solid home in St Mary’s Bay in New Zealand is one of the oldest in Auckland. It is said to have been built by a sea captain, constructed from the bricks he had brought from England as ballast in his ship. Architect Malcolm Walker has extended the house and renovated the existing spaces to bring light and open informality into this heavy, enclosed historical residence.

CREATING SPACES Malcolm is known for planning to create spaces that feel comfortable to be in. The sizes, layouts and proportions relate to people and how they dwell in a home. His is an architecture of space and functionality rather than aesthetic cartwheels and inventive new forms. This is not to say there is a lack of poetry. In this house details like a huge window in the middle of the kitchen bench, or the sunken outdoor space rimmed with seating, highlight how domestic architecture can be subtle, cosy, light and personal without needing to reinvent the wheel. The whole rear of the ground level was pushed out to create a large living, dining and kitchen space. The kitchen was positioned at a right angle to the living and dining area,

The client suggested both the use of stainless steel on the cabinetry and the concrete island to create a tough, industrial aesthetic. While not intended, the bubbled pattern in the concrete gives the island the look of marble veining, offering welcome texture against the slick tiles and stainless steel. “You don’t design kitchens to look good. You design them to work, and then you make them look good,” Malcolm Walker explains. “I think you can get caught up in fashion. People read about the magic triangle, and the special distances, but you really have to read the building, read the people, read how the room relates, there’s a lot more to it. That’s one thing with the client’s choice of the stainless steel and concrete, it’s good because the house is massive and solid, and so it does ride well with the house.” There is little cluttering the space: no overhead cabinets, and even the fridge has been tucked into the pantry to maintain the unbroken horizontal lines of the benches. This is a very clever delineation of zones. The fridge sits within the pantry, clearly within the storage zone, which can be closed off (though not completely as the door panes are clear glass), but the

fridge is still in line with the back bench of the kitchen, so cleverly groups it into the cooking and prep zones. The pantry width was specifically designed for the Fisher & Paykel ActiveSmart™ Ice & Water refrigerator. The walls are lined with shelves of Futura plywood, offering ample storage.

IN THE DETAIL The cooking zone is an anchoring point in the kitchen, with the robust 36" Gas Cooktop sitting over the 30" Built-In Oven. The generous size of the oven’s internal cavity and the power and space available on the cooktop means that meals are easily created for a hungry family as well as for entertaining.

These days everyone uses the kitchen – for preparing and eating food and as a place to gather. The usability of the space has become a major challenge – design for everyone is not as simple as it sounds. At Fisher & Paykel we do a lot of research: working with real people, observing how they work and how they live with the various design aspects of the kitchen, the appliances, the cupboards. This is not only about ergonomics – but also looking at the psychological and sociological aspects of how the different components work together. We use this information to help us design better appliances and also to share design trends with kitchen designers. For example, we have noticed that people live out of drawers. It makes sense that what we use most is placed at waist height in a kitchen; after all, this is where our hands are. We have all had the experience, whether we're conscious of it or not, that if something is used less frequently we place it in the third drawer down. We found that people are opting to place their DishDrawer™ Dishwashers side by side rather than one above the other as they find it easier than bending down to access the lower drawer. This simple insight encouraged us to keep pursuing our thinking around the

distributed kitchen. What if all our drawers could be appliances, each with a different function: one for washing, one for cooling and another set to pantry mode to keep dry foods at the desired temperature? With increased use of the kitchen as a social centre, design aesthetics have become more important. The kitchen is no longer hidden away. We demand better quality and better finishes. This means that we have to make sure that everything we design can be easily maintained and cleaned, and always looks good. The kitchen of just 20 years ago was a very different beast. The kitchen of today has an enormous amount of technology behind it and its components look more like furniture. They are designed for creative use rather than for tasks. The kitchen of today not only has to look good, it also has to make us look good. It has to fit into our increasingly complex, integrated and multi-faceted lifestyles. It has to be the place for storage and the place for preparation­– from weekday convenience to weekend gourmet. It has to be the place to play with the kids, the home office, the place where we hold family meetings, the place in which we entertain. The kitchen is a fundamental member of the family.

DESIGNED FOR REAL LIFE At Fisher & Paykel, we are curious about people – how and where they live, what they do and how they use things. That’s why we learn about people’s needs as the starting point for new designs. We are curious about not only the function and performance of our products, but also the role they play in people’s lives. For us, design is a human endeavour to make life a little better.

WASHING REINVENTED It takes a lot of brainpower to make things really sim ple . That is th e essence of SmartDrive™ technology. Traditional washing machines are made up of many moving parts. Their complexity also means there’s a lot that can go wrong with them. Fisher & Payke l S m a r tD rive™ m a chin e s are made of just three main parts: a small computer, a flexible agitator and a simple direct-drive motor. This means these washing machines can sense each load, use just enough water and be ultimately more reliable as they run with fewer moving parts.
