The hide it away toolkit for flexible spaces

Homeowners love open-plan layouts, but they also want to be able to conceal messier hotspots in a non-permanent way. These slide-and-pivot door fittings provide versatility

The Häfele Hawa Concepta folding sliding door system can screen off storage and appliances and even whole kitchens in open-plan spaces.

Häfele’s latest Functional Spaces: Homes for Living research has revealed that the most useful zones or areas in a kitchen for homeowners are a dedicated utility space (72 per cent), a home office set-up (55 per cent) or an arts and crafts station (52 per cent).

However, more than two-fifths (43 per cent) want to be able to shut these types of spaces off at the end of a day. 

Slide and pivot systems, such as Häfele’s Hawa Concepta, have surged in popularity in recent years for exactly this reason. As a hinged system, which then slides back into a concealed pocket, pivot doors help to completely close off areas of the home when they’re not in use.

Available in a variety of colours and styles, Hawa Concepta is also compatible with integrated lighting such as Loox or Flex Light from Häfele. Used as part of a clever, layered lighting system, designers can illuminate the hidden spaces behind Concepta doors when they’re in use to improve the functionality even further.

Ideal for any multi-purpose kitchen space, Hawa Concepta provides wow factor while simultaneously helping to achieve a minimalist look, creating a feeling of space even in a limited footprint.
