Exclusive in its choice of material and design
Since 2008, Norm Architects has worked domestically as well as internationally with everything from residential architecture to interior and industrial design. Add to that an affinity for integrating photography, graphic design and art directing into their work.
The kitchen is simple, but exclusive in its timeless design. With no handles, it presents a countertop that covers the entire surface and adds to it an exquisite finish – like the best-designed furniture.
The materials, which have seldom been used in kitchens, present a clean but raw expression. The kitchen comes in two different variations: bronzed tombac, and sawn smoked oak. For a thoroughly personalized kitchen you can stand on the shoulders of Norm Architects and add your own mix of materials creating the visual expression you like.
The all-natural materials have been selected for their durability and reaction to wear. The pieces will patinate beautifully, which can be seen in the bronzed tombac, which will slowly develop a golden shine in the areas of continuous wear.
The Norm design offers a variety of materials that can be combined as desired. Drawer fronts and doors are available in bronzed tombac and sawn smoked oak veneer. All drawer fronts and cabinet doors are without handles and have a 5 x 5 mm edge on the back.
All fronts are opened with a push-system (electric or mechanic), but handles in bronzed tombac can be added, which we recommend for integrated appliances.
The tombac fronts are made of 0.8 mm solid tombac, bronzed and glued on an 18 mm black-dyed MDF. The edges have been varnished and twice coated with wax. The bronzed tombac will gradually get a golden shine in the areas of continuous wear and patinate beautifully over time.
Fronts and doors in sawn smoked oak are veneered on the front and back, and the same wood is used on the solid edges. The doors are wax-coated.
Norm recommends a 20 mm countertop in fibre concrete or solid, smoked oak. The price of your countertop depends on the size, cuts and whether you need a sink etc. – therefore we prefer a hand drawing and exact specification of your needs before we give you a price.
Norm recommends using cover panels and plinths in the same material as the countertop, which will frame the kitchen beautifully. The plinth is more elegant in black (see photo). Any other cover panels will work best in white or the colour of the walls.
It is not possible to varnish or change the colours on the fronts and doors. Instead, the elements can be combined for different expressions, for example a fibre concrete countertop with fronts made of tombac (see photo) or sawn smoked oak veneer. Alternatively, you may prefer a countertop in smoked oak combined with tombac cabinet doors, and so on. A mix of cabinet fronts and doors made of different materials will create a unique expression.
