Intelligent living comfort of the future
A symbiosis of architecture, ecology and design: this is how the Fincube could be described in a single sentence. With its 360° glass facade and an unusual wooden construction the future-oriented minimal house made of sustainable materials is a very special architectural eye-catcher. The mobile unit can be adapted to all kinds of different uses and guarantees a very high level of living comfort.
The Fincube (at present there is a show house in Unterinn/Ritten, South Tyrol) is a further development of the Loftcube presented in 2008 at Light & Building by the Berlin designer Werner Aisslinger together with Berker. Thanks to the wide glass fronts with triple glazing, innovative lighting technology and natural materials the Fincube combines an affinity to nature with the vision of a perfect sanctuary in a natural green setting. The interior design of the 47 square metre Fincube with sleeping space, living space, kitchen and bathroom is characterised by a deliberately formal purism. The wooden slat cladding takes up existing elements of regional architecture and gives them a modern interpretation whilst also providing privacy and protection from the sun. Thanks to natural materials, the low-energy construction and minimal floor sealing, the Fincube fulfils all principles of sustainable construction. The flat roof can be optionally equipped with a photovoltaic system.
The lighting – with dimming and lighting scenarios – the electric heating and the ventilation of the living unit are controlled via KNX. Switches from the Berker "B.7 Glas" series in black and the intuitively operated Master Control are fitted. With its attractive touch panel the Master Control is ideally integrated in the ambience. The same applies to the Berker B.IQ tactile sensor as the control point of the intelligent little house. When it came to design, the makers of the Fincube did not want to make any compromises. This is why a black glass variant of the B.IQ is also produced in the Berker manufactory.
