If you have an Ikea kitchen and need an upgrade then this option is for you. In general the carcasses of Ikea kitchens are so well made that there is little need to replace them. You can transform your kitchen by simply replacing the doors and fronts. There are some amazing companies that make and create such products. Danish company Reform specialise in architect designed door fronts and countertops for Ikea kitchens.
This focus on architecturally designed kitchens makes me very excited! Currently Reform have collaborated with Norm Architects, Bjarke Ingels group and designers such as Chris S Halstrom, Cecilie Manz and Christina Meyer Bengsston.
Sustainability is a focus that I champion and gladly share especially in design. The architects at Lendager Group specialise in sustainable architecture, looking to explore new business models with an increased focus on creating a regenerative design. Lendager group have designed a kitchen in collaboration with Dinesen wood for Reform. The UP kitchen is made from Dinesen’s high quality surplus offcuts.
“The kitchen consists of cuts that are left when Dinesen has supplied floors to galleries, restaurants, mansions and other premier establishments. Even though that wood has undergone one of the most extensive production process you can imagine it is impossible to completely eliminate waste. It is those pieces that we are able to give new life.” – reform.
The UP kitchen is an incredibly clever recycling solution that I hope inspires other companies to follow suit. It ticks all of the boxes. Minimalist, simple, Dinesen wood and sustainable.
The UP design is only available in drawer front sizes compatible with IKEA’s METOD series. Contact our sales team for further information.
