Blum Motion Solutions; Giving you a Smoother Kitchen Experience
The BLUM brand has made a name for itself as the Rolls-Royce of motion fitting systems for kitchen furniture. The company’s revolutionary approach to hinge, pull-out and lift systems has produced some simply outstanding results and you’ll find that most high-end kitchens all over the world are fitted with BLUM movement products.
Every Blum product creates effortless motion. Choose SERVO-DRIVE and TIP-ON for smooth opening; rely on BLUMOTION for silent and effortless closing.
One of the most outstanding things about BLUM technology is the BLUMOTION system, seen at work in the BLUM clip-top hinges. BLUMOTION allows cupboard and cabinet doors to close silently and with the absolute minimum of effort, whilst also giving a much wider range of motion than normal in a standard hinge. This makes doors to be opened much wider, allowing easier access.
The SERVO-DRIVE system is described as an “electrical opening support system” and is particularly impressive. This system enables drawers to be opened by lightly touching the drawer front, so if you don’t have a free hand, no problem! The drawer slides out and back smoothly and silently even when fully loaded and there is absolutely no effort required by the user.
Gently press and it opens. TIP-ON, the mechanical opening system for handle-less pull-outs, drawers, doors and lift systems; offers functional, easy opening.
The BLUM specialism is aptly summed up by the company motto - Perfecting Motion. The products are aimed at making the opening and closing of furniture the best it can be, and have they ever succeeded! Compared to many of the other equivalent products on the market, it’s like the difference between closing the door on a rusty Ford van, and closing the door on a Porche 911; there simply is no comparison.
The AVENTOS lift system is used in overhead wall cabinets. The beauty of the BLUM AVENTOS system is that the cabinet doors can be opened with a light touch and will remain in any position desired; there’s no need to hold the door with one hand whilst trying to juggle your shopping with the other. AVENTOS lift systems from Blum combine perfecting motion, modern design and simple installation, assembly and adjustment.

All of Blum’s pull-out systems close softly and silently with integrated BLUMOTION and all of them have a feather-light glide. Full extensions give users a full view of and direct access to interiors. Thanks to the wide range of products, a multitude of applications are possible. In addition, the pull-out systems excel in terms of simple assembly and user-friendly technology. The user convenience of Blum’s pull-outs can be further enhanced with SERVO-DRIVE. The electric opening system can be used for all three models. A gentle touch suffices and pull-outs seem to open by themselves.
TANDEMBOX plus: the tried and tested model TANDEMBOX plus is a versatile system which has proven its worth for many years. The product line is characterised by round gallery rails. The containers can be complemented with different sides – called “BOXSIDES” – or with a double gallery rail. TANDEMBOX plus, ranging from simple drawers to extra-wide pull-outs, has always been a source of inspiration due to its great diversity and versatility of applications. All of these qualities and advantages have also been incorporated in the new TANDEMBOX intivo and TANDEMBOX antaro product lines.
TANDEMBOX intivo: for personalising pull-outs
TANDEMBOX intivo gives customers even more possibilities to personalise high fronted pull-outs, for it produces new and diverse opportunities for differentiation with various colours and materials. The new TANDEMBOX intivo has a harmonious appearance, consisting of a drawer side without a gallery rail. The drawer side can be complemented with a “BOXCAP”, an attachment of the same drawer side material, or with inserts of any kind of material such as glass, wood, stone, nylon or leather. The components produce a closed container in which items can be optimally stored. When conceiving TANDEMBOX intivo, developers took great care to achieve a balance between drawer side and insert. The transition is smooth. There is no gap between drawer side and insert. The same concept can also be used for inner drawers. All TANDEMBOX intivo components – except for the new L-drawer side - can be assembled without tools. The new high fronted pull-out drawer side has 3-dimensional front adjustment – directly under the cover cap. TANDEMBOX intivo is not only an additional means of upgrading the appearance of kitchens but also produces “very personal” solutions – to the great joy of kitchen users.
TANDEMBOX antaro: the latest addition
This new pull-out system is characterised by rectangular gallery rails. By using these angular elements and by harmonising the colour of all fittings components, we have created a system that is a clear alternative to the model with round gallery rails. TANDEMBOX antaro is based on tried and tested system components. It has the same cabinet profiles and back as the other models. And the colour and material concept of “antaro” is also based on that of “intivo”. This means that manufacturers have a manageable product range that offers many new and different opportunities for design.
TANDEM is the perfect way to present the fine details of wooden drawers in your cabinets. Even heavy drawers equipped with TANDEM impress users with their unrivalled running action. Very wide wooden drawers and pull-outs can now be opened reliably using TIP-ON – thanks to synchronisation. It can be used for single and full extensions.
Hinges connect the cabinet door to the cabinet. Doors can be opened to different angles and distances depending on the hinge type.
In combination with BLUMOTION, our hinges even close doors silently and effortlessly.

Why choose Blum fittings and systems? Buying any fitted furniture – particularly kitchens – is initially based on the external look of the product. But once installed and in use it the way in which it works and functions that becomes of paramount importance. This is why it is essential to choose a kitchen equipped with Blum fittings and systems.
Firstly, storage. Research shows that up to 66% of new kitchen buyers are dissatisfied with the amount of storage available in their kitchens after installation. Blum have spent years of research and development creating products to provide optimum storage solutions. How have they done this? By ensuring that all of the internal volume of the cabinets is intelligently used with full and immediate access to even the most difficult recesses of the internal space.
So fixed shelves in base units have been eliminated and drawers and internal pull-outs mounted on perfect motion, full-extension runner and drawer boxes like the Blum TANDEMBOX. The interiors need to be properly organised by using flexible organisational systems like ORGA-LINE and galleries plus dividers. Special units like the Blum SPACE CORNER and the innovative Under-sink and plinth drawers use normally difficult or wasted space. What Blum do is use the full depth and height of the cabinet.
Secondly, function and in particular motion. Blum have developed amazing products under the banner of “Perfecting Motion”. This means that all components used to assist in the opening and closing of drawers, have integral BLUMOTION soft close, including the superb AVENTOS lift system for overhead wall cabinets. Now Blum have introduced SERVO-DRIVE electro-mechanical opening in response to slight pressure (and closing in the case of the AVENTOS overhead lift doors).
All of the products and systems combine seamlessly to create a superbly functioning kitchen, as Blum says: “We don’t make kitchens, we make kitchens work”.
