The Danish kitchen company Reform, who got renowned by hacking the Ikea kitchen by giving top designers and architects lot of room to manoeuvre and explore new possibilities. And once again, they have pulled out three über cool design studios from their big hat, how they keep doing it, I don’t know. I wonder if designing kitchens is high on designers and architects lists of must-do’s?
Reform is adding Studio David Thulstrup, Note Design Studio and Muller Van Severen to their long list. A list already including names like Bjarke Ingels Group, Norm Architects, Cecilie Manz, and many more.
I know its cheeky to ask already, but whos next? I would love to see Ilse Crawford (obviously, right?), Dimore Studio, Virgil Abloh, and a Vincent Van Duysen kitchen could be super cool to see.
Back to the kitchen that are here and real. My friend David Thulstrup have created a very simple, yet very modern. I love how he reinterpret the minimalistic traditional Scandi kitchen. He combines shiny surfaces with a matt, industrial look from materials like aluminum and stainless steel. I really like the darker version.
Stockholm based Note Design Studio have taken some of the traditional Scandinavian elements like oak and panels and given them their crative spin. It is clean lines with warmth and tactile sense. Their kitchen comes in both a colorful version and a more subtle wooden front version (top picture).
Last but know least, Dutch Muller Can Severen have created a kitchen with an artsy twist, which I personally really like. With unconventional elements and materials, he has made a kitchen you don’t see every day, combining a lot of color with brass and marble.
