Monogram and Zac Posen: The Elevate Everything Project

Monogram recently debuted a Column refrigerator door panel artfully conceived by style and fashion icon Zac Posen. With intricate details from the charcoal mirror finish to the fabric inspired details, Zac Posen’s door panel exudes sophistication that will help its owners realize the endless opportunities for custom design. The Monogram column is expertly engineered with LED interior lighting, autofill pitcher and WiFi connectivity.

From Overlooked to Outstanding – the Monogram Gas Cooktop

The gas cooktop generally goes unnoticed in the kitchen—that is, until now. On a mission to Elevate Everything, Monogram has taken this often-overlooked kitchen appliance and turned it into a focal point and a source of pride with finely crafted materials, innovative technology and the power to boil fast and simmer ultra-low.

“The Monogram Gas Cooktop is modern and beautiful, yet robust in appearance and power,” said Ed Mammorella, Monogram marketing manager. “From the sapphire crystal glass knobs to the brass burners, it goes above and beyond what is expected of gas cooktops.”

It has beauty that will be the envy of the neighborhood
Available in 30- and 36-inch models, the Monogram Gas Cooktop features five burners with brass accents, stainless brushed knobs sealed with sapphire glass with an LED light indicator and linear grates that provide a sleek, contemporary appearance. The 36-inch model also features an LED timer, a rarity among gas cooktops.

WiFi and Bluetooth® connectivity provide convenience and peace of mind
Ever left home wondering if you turned off an appliance? With the Monogram Gas Cooktop, owners don’t have to wonder because they can monitor the cooktop status using a smart device. The WiFi feature also enables owners to set timers from smart devices, while Bluetooth enables a connection between the cooktop and the vent hood.

Built to perform, built to last
Crafted with only the finest materials, Monogram Gas Cooktops are built to stand the test of time, even for those who put their cooktops to the test morning, noon and night. Featuring the refined quality of four dual-flame burners with a 20,000 BTU center burner, this powerful cooktop allows owners to boil fast and simmer ultra-low for delicate foods.

“Owners love the gas cooktops for their beauty and functionality, and designers love them for their modern appearance and fine detailing down to the polish of the grates,” Mammorella said. “It is just another way we are staying true to our commitment to Elevate Everything in the kitchen.”

Not only did we have acclaimed chefs, but we also had globally renowned fashion designer, Zac Posen, cooking right alongside them and signing copies of his new cookbook, Cooking with Zac.

Attendees were ecstatic to not only meet Zac and get a signed copy of his cookbook, but also to hear about his plans to design a one-of-a-kind panel for our Monogram Column refrigerators. Stay tuned for more exclusive plans between Monogram and Zac Posen in 2018, as well as partnerships with craftsmen that epitomize the quality of our brand.

In addition to displaying the custom pizza peel made for Monogram by William Campbell of Anvil Goods, we had another artisan’s talents in a prominent, full-wall display that sparked a lot of conversation. The cast-iron pan covered wall was brought to us by Borough Furnace who sustainably handmakes their products out of recycled scrap iron. Partnering with these artisans supports our passion for craftsmanship, devotion to details and our commitment to Elevate Everything.

 

In the Kitchen with Zac Posen

By partnering with some of the world’s most talented artisans, Monogram is creating a stunning selection of innovations that are truly unique to their category. As part of a new collaboration with Monogram, global fashion designer and cookbook author Zac Posen will design a Column refrigerator panel. This high-fashion accent piece created by Posen adds an element of intrigue to premium décor and serves as inspiration for how Column appliances can be uniquely personalized. This is the first of other exclusive projects planned with Posen this year.

Posen is a renowned fashion icon on the red carpet, worn by leading women, including Michelle Obama, Gwyneth Paltrow, Uma Thurman and Rhianna. Others know him as a judge on Lifetime’s mainstay “Project Runway.” Globally, Posen’s collections represent the most refined qualities of glamour, and now his signature style will be reflected in the kitchen.

“Zac Posen’s passion and pride for his brand make him the perfect ambassador for Monogram,” said Ed Mammorella, Monogram marketing manager. “It’s a bonus to partner with a designer who equally enjoys spending time in the kitchen as his latest cookbook, Cooking with Zac, attests.”

Elevate Everything

By its very definition, elegance is understated. So, Monogram appliances’ sophisticated styling and purposeful, minimalist design is perhaps its ultimate expression.

Our obsession with quality can be seen in every hand-finished detail, and in our choice of only the most durable and luxurious materials. This uncompromising attention to every aspect of design also extends to the science inside: our award-winning technology makes cooking faster, easier and better.

In short, at Monogram, we raise the bar so that you can raise yours. Elevate everything.
