Ballerina. The journey is the reward.

Kitchens, living rooms and furnishings have become the main point of focus on the list of customer desires as a result of the pandemic. But it has also shown us that goals can change quickly and that new approaches become necessary. This relates to both lifestyle habits and furnishing styles.


Art Pepper

The new trend colour, the true alternative to black.
Art Pepper is a warm, dark shade of grey that compliments all of the current warm-white tones, stone decors and wood decors. This new colour tone is purist and reflects the zeitgeist, moving away from harsh black towards warmer colours. It has a modern and yet long-lasting neutral elegant ppearance. Therefore, Ballerina has chosen this as is the new colour for all interior fittings, and is now available as a carcase colour and as a front colour in all price groups.


The under-floor guide system is setting the new standard for the demandson upscale kitchens.
Clean-lined design with a distinctive shape and surprisingly smooth running – these are the characteristics of the elegant LEGRABOX pull-out system with full pull-out and cushioning included. Its under-floor guide system offers the highest level of comfort with low opening forces from the very first millimetre. The perfect synchronisation provides noticeably smooth easy running. The ART version of LEGRABOX is the standard equipment for Ballerina kitchens in the pure and free range. The LEGRABOX Inox, the stainless steel version, is  vailable at an extra charge. The LEGRABOX range with four versions is complimented with a consistent interior design in three plastic versions and two wood versions.

The LEGRABOX pure system in the ART version offers the advantages of a full pull-out in conjunction with the smoothest cushioning as a high-quality underfloor guide.

As a second alternative, the LEGRABOX free in the ART version with glass inserts on the sides is a captivating embodiment of elegance and practicality in harmony.

The first sustainable cutlery organiser From the material, through production, right through to recycling – when developing OrganiQ together with the Institute for Composite Materials at the University of Kaiserslautern, the focus was on the entire process chain. The environmentally friendly OrganiQ composite has a natural fibre content of 78 percent – hemp and kenaf in equal quantities. The remaining 22% is made up of meshed duroplastic bonding material, water-based in manufacture and free of formaldehyde and phenol resins.

This consists of rough-haired stems and lobed leaves of the plant Hibiscus cannabinus. The fibrous plant from the mallow family is similar to jute, but is less sensitive to light. Furthermore, it has good tensile and flexural properties with a low density.

This is one of the oldest and most versatile cultivated plants known to man. The advantage of the fibres lies in their very good resistance to wear and tear - the products feature a longer service life. They can be reused through recycling.


Mobility, freedom and individuality with FreeBRIDGE and FreeMOBILE
Mobility, freedom and individuality are the keywords of our time and for new room concepts. The trend of dissipating the classic fitted kitchen into mobile units and to integrate them as individual elements with functions into the living room concept is becoming increasingly popular. This subject has been introduced to the market over the last few years in the form of the mobile FreeSTYLE, TakeAway and FreeSTYLE WALL design elements. All of these elements won various design and innovation awards. For 2021, the Ballerina FreeWORLD family is being extended with the FreeBRIDGE and FreeMOBILE. The concept was developed by the designer duo Thorsten Rosenstengel and Kristina Meyer.

The practical FreeBRIDGE can be positioned anywhere and used for a multitude of purposes. Wherever and whenever it is needed. The rolling FreeMOBILE is the true all-rounder in everyday kitchen life, and can be used for example as a dining table extension or barbecue helper on the terrace or in the living room for drinks or to chill on the pad. All of the functional elements such as bottle and herb boxes, spice racks, knife block and foil dispenser can be installed or replaced flexibly in the FreeBRIDGE and FreeMOBILE units.
Everything is available in the two different versions – light oak and dark ash. Converted as serving trolleys, they can be equipped with all front and body colours.
