World War II pushed forth advances in science and technology including the invention of atomic energy. "The Bomb" set off other Atomic Era Booms: The Baby Boom and the Housing Boom.
At the time, visual representations of the atom itself became a design motif reflected in home decor. Printed on barkcloth textiles, on glassware, and on almost every other decorative item you could think of, forward-thinking Atomic style was all the rage for en vogue modern homes.
Our kul grilles customer, Robert loves the Atomic Era and Modern Architecture. Robert's home clearly reflects his passion for both! To pay appropriate homage to his favorite historical design period, Robert was very selective in choosing the right decor elements to match the Atomic Era aesthetic in his Mid-Century Modern home.

Robert's journey to kul grilles started with his front entry foyer. The home's amazing original floor tiles were painstakingly restored to their former glory but sadly, the old dented floor vent cover could not be salvaged. So, the hunt began for a stylish, clean-lined, era-appropriate floor register to replace it. Enter kul grilles!
The front foyer is the first impression that sets the design tone for the entire home. kul grilles have a linear-bar-grille design that happens to mimic the reeded glass sidelight window in Robert's foyer. The rectangular shape of Robert's new grille jives with the railings and wall treatment featured in the space.
Once Robert found our grilles, he knew he couldn't stop with just one. He soon decided to replace every floor vent throughout the house!
Thank you, Robert, for sharing these photos with us. We are excited to shine a spotlight on your project and capture the opportunity to show-off your new kul grilles!

Project Spotlight: KUBE Architects 2019 DC Metro Modern Home Tour + kül grilles Modern Grilles for the Modern Home
KUBE Architecture + kül grilles + brushed chrome grilles
kül grilles loves Modernism! We are proud to be represented in the AIA Award-winning, KUBE Architecture Dual Modern Home, showcased at the 2019 DC Metro Modern Home Tour in October.
Inside the tour:
The DC Metro Modern Home Tour allows modern design enthusiasts to get inside each home and meet the Architects, Builders, and Designers on each unique project and get inspired. This presents a chance to experience the latest in modern building materials and incorporate them into their own designs.
Inside the Dual Modern Home project:
Located in Highview Court, in Silver Spring, MD sits a one-of-a-kind, piece of art. This renovation and addition to the Architect’s own 1950 mid-century modern house, designed by Charles Goodman, included two phases.
The existing Goodman structure was first renovated five years ago, with a new kitchen, bathroom, and windows. The original floor plan was preserved, except for the kitchen being opened to the main living room. The just-completed addition extends the living space to include a library, an office that doubles as the kids’ hangout space, along with two new full bathrooms and a laundry room.
This unique union of structures combined with a multi-level footprint, open concept design, and concrete floors would naturally pose some unique heating, ventilation and air conditioning challenges. Finding the right air quality solution was critical to the flow, literally and aesthetically.
From a visual design perspective, air vents in open-areas must blend into the surroundings. Not to create sightline disruptions. Where would the design team find unintrusive, clean-lined, sleek modern floor grilles? What floor registers would be best to use on these concrete floors? Enter kül grilles!

The master bedroom shares the sprawling Lake Okanagan view. Modern patio accents and patterned Black carpet create the perfect backdrop to show off the brushed chrome kul grilles floor registers.
Thank you to Method Homes for providing the photos from this wonderful modern prefab show home on the dwell on design trade show floor. This gorgeous, minimalist modern home was the perfect venue to showcase our matte finish clear anodized grilles.
