With its elegant handle made of something as unconventional as seat belt fabric you get a hyper modern kitchen
BIG is a Copenhagen and New York based group of architects, designers, builders and thinkers operating within the fields of architecture, urbanism, research and development since 2005. BIG is currently involved in a large number of sizable projects throughout the world. From the Two World Trade Centers in Manhattan to the National Gallery of Greenland in Nuuk and the Maritime Museum of Denmark in Helsingør.
Now, they have specially designed a kitchen for Reform, which not only has an affordable price, but also certain novel characteristics. All handles are made from a material we are familiar with, just not from our kitchens. They are made from the black fabric used to make seat belts for cars. As such the kitchen gains a hyper modern quality.
The BIG kitchen is available in white and oak with a composite table top and composite wash, creating a beautiful holistic feeling. The composite can be substituted for stainless steel if one seeks a more industrial look. Or they can be combined to produce a third visual expression.
BIG’s kitchen series is available for all the models and sizes offered by IKEA. Drawer fronts and doors are available in two different materials: 19 mm white spray-painted MDF and 19 mm veneered oak. The handles are identical on both models and are made from the same black nylon used for seat belts. The handle is mounted by a black-painted fitting screwed on to the back of the door or the drawer front.
The BIG-designed handle is affixed on one side of both drawer fronts and cabinet doors. It can be placed on either right or left side – you decide.
The handle straps are made of 2 mm thick, black woven nylon. The 80 mm wide strap is mounted as a loop and can easily be removed and cleaned in a dishwasher at a maximum of 50° Celsius, if needed. These handles are extremely durable.
BIG recommend a 10 mm worktop in black Getacore with a sink welded to integrate with the worktop. The bottom of the sink is made of stainless steel. Getacore is a mineral plate very similar to Corian. The price of your worktop depends on the size, cuts and if you need a sink etc. – therefore we prefer a hand drawing and exact specification of your wishes before we give you a price.
BIG suggest that cover panels and additions be in the same material as the fronts. However, the plinth should be matt black (NCS S 9000-N gloss 20).
The painted version is matt white (NCS S 0500-N gloss 20). The veneered front is European oak coated with clear wax.
