“If you want a seamless aesthetic, these are the products to go for,” explained Fisher & Paykel’s Chief Designer, Mark Haydon, at the Architectural Digest Design Show 2019.
This annual NYC-based design expo brings 400+ on-trend brands together to celebrate quality, curated design. Fisher & Paykel, a New Zealand-based appliance designer and manufacturer, was one such brand.
Fisher & Paykel has produced premium appliances from their headquarters since 1954, and today, they manufacture all over the world: from Thailand to Mexico. When it comes to appliance design, one of the company’s biggest priorities is sustainability. To that end, Fisher & Paykel focuses on collaborative design ideas that take into account the needs of future generations.
“We are committed to ongoing research and development. Our culture is one of open innovation, which allows people to work collaboratively to find insights and ideas that connect with our customers and respect our planet.”
As Chief Designer, Mark developed many of the styles showcased at the AD Design Show 2019, including the perennial favorite, the Professional Range. “It features the most up-to-date styling,” he explained. Color-changing indicator dials and an easy-access touch screen on all Professional Range models give the induction or gas-burning unit an overall clean and intuitive feel.
The Classic Range, a debut product for Fisher & Paykel’s North American market, has more edge than the Professional Range, yet it doesn’t skimp on the same state-of-the-art features. “[The Classic Range} has a little more fun and personality,” said Mark. This range model is available in multiple colors including black, stainless, red, and white, and also features a standard warming drawer.
Aside from cooktops and ovens, Fisher & Paykel also manufactures a strong refrigeration line. For 2019, column refrigerators are all the range, and Fisher & Paykel delivers with 24” freezers, 24” refrigerators, and the brand new wine column with a 90-bottle capacity. Mark was eager to share about the wine column– an immediate crowd favorite. “The wine column has two completely independent temperature compartments configured depending on the type of wine you’re storing.”
What can you expect from Fisher & Paykel? The brand focuses on high-quality, sustainability, and helping customers find the right appliance for their homes. “It’s about finding a beautiful fit within the kitchen.”
