Habitat Kitchen – Spectacular Schüller Comeback in Milan
Kitchens as a habitat: For the first time, D’art Design Gruppe (Dart) arranges the appearance of kitchen manufacturer Schüller at EuroCucina from 17 to 22 April.  The appearance in hall 13, stand D11 E12 presents both the trademark Schüller.C and with significantly more space the premium brand next125. Dark and elegant on one side, bright and modern on the other – this is how Dart arranges one of the biggest German manufacturers of kitchen furniture for its return to EuroCucina.
