Writing about a brand you got to know online is one thing, seeing the actual kitchen design and meeting the people behind the brand you have been emailing with is something else. During 3 days of design I had the chance to visit the Reform showroom and meet the team in Copenhagen.
I first have been writing about Reform when they launched their kitchen in collaboration with Norm Architects. An amazing kitchen, which is affordable because of the use of IKEA components, have a look here at the kitchen that is still my favourite after I have seen most of them at the showroom: Norm Architects X Reform | New Affordable design kitchens.
Chris L. Halstrøm
During 3 days of design a new kitchen design by Chris L. Halstrøm was launched. The kitchen, build with IKEA Method elements as a base, has an almost Japanese minimalistic look, the handle has become a part of the entire door – a frame for the door itself. In the showroom the grey kitchen was installed, but Chris’ design is also available in black.
For the past three years Swedish Afteroom has held a permanent spot on Architonic’s TOP 100 designers in the world. Founded and directed by the Taiwanese team of Hung-Ming Chen and Chen-Yen Wei they aim to create uncomplicated furniture and objects that become more valuable as time goes on. In the showroom they presented their sideboard and from what I have seen from it, it would fit in any room and create an instant clean and uncluttered look, can you believe me if I say the doors are really beautiful.
I loved making pictures in the showroom which is located in an old factory, creating a beautiful backdrop for the kitchens. Next door and connected to the showroom you will find Million who provided some of the tables shown in the pictures, while the plywood ones are made by the team for the styling purposes.
