At Nordbygg we present our latest kitchen sink Eligo, awarded with Red Dot - Best of the Best, German Design Award and Interior Innovation Award. Eligo is a kitchen sink designed for real needs and kitchens, with a mix of soft and hard lines, discrete touch buttons and innovative accessories.
In a Scandinavian kitchen the sink is a tool that also needs to work as part of the interior. The Frame series has firm lines and rounded corners which give a modern and harmonious expression.
We have extended the Omnia range with seven new models, all with Intra universal flange that can be used for both inset, under- and flush mount.
Our ambition is to raise the standard of the public sanitary room. It reflects the buildings signature, and is one of the rooms where you can create character and an experience of something extra. Millinox sanitary accessories, Icon wash basin, the flush free urinal and our wash trough for inset all meet particular requirements in terms of functionality, user-friendliness, design and aesthetics.
Do not miss the premiere of our concept kitchen, made entirely of stainless steel! Take the opportunity to experience delicious appetizers in a creative cooking environment.
Thoughts from the designer:
”For Intra we wanted to make a generous kitchen that could match a serious interest in cooking and high demands of kitchen equipment with the great quality of being surrounded by nature. A kitchen that encourage serious cooking, preparing, storing and serving. The sliding top reveals all the equipment and simultaneously creates a large spatious serving and dining area for you and your friends. By closing the top the kitchen transforms into a solid stainless steel block that protects the equipment all the year around.”
Export Company of the Year is a tribute to a regional company that has succeeded internationally and thereby increased local production and profitability.
"Effective quality work and high delivery reliability have led to successful export. Intra has received design awards for their products and thus obtained recognition for internationally competitive products."

Involving our customers in the development process is an important part of our continuous improvement plan.
This is one of the reasons why we recently were elected Supplier of the Year for the second year in a row by Vedum, Swedish kitchen and bath manufacturer.
