Austria-based hardware manufacturer Blum might make the low-end hinges for Ikea's cabinets, but when it comes to their own branded product, they go for the top of the market. At Holz-Handwerk Blum was showing off their sexy Legrabox, a drawer system that provides the strength of heavy-duty drawer slides—offering both 40kg and 70kg capacities, or about 88 to 154 pounds—with the added touch that you don't have to see the darn things when the drawers are open, as they're completely concealed.
And despite the sides being sheathed in stainless steel (with an optional anti-fingerprint matte coating), each drawer side is just 12.8 millimeters thick!
With a conventional 3/4-inch material for your drawer sides plus the quarter-inch required for the slide itself, you'd ordinarily be looking at twice that thickness, plus the ugliness of the exposed slides.
Here's how the Legraboxes look in motion (and the true ID'ers among you will chuckle at the fake Wacom sketching at the beginning). Note that there are no drawer pulls required, and that the drawers auto-close after you give them a push:
Of course, if you're still too lazy to provide the little push needed to get the things open and closed, Blum also offers an electric servo-driven variant.
