The metal pieces that mark the push-function highlight the sharp and timeless lines of the design
Throughout recent decades Henning Larsen Architects has mastered an impressive portfolio of internationally acclaimed projects in Denmark as well as around the world: The Opera in Copenhagen, Moesgaard Museum in Aarhus, and the Siemens headquarters in Munich.
Everything that Henning Larsen Architects works on reveals strong roots in the Scandinavian tradition of design, with the goal being to allow as many as possible to enjoy great design. The Reform kitchen created by Henning Larsen Architects is simple and inspired by a classic carpentry kitchen with custom-made elements. As such, it’s a timeless design made from durable materials.
The kitchen is available in two versions with different options for combining elements: One is made from oak veneer with a beautiful band of copper, while the other is spray painted white with a metal band in the same color. The interchange of warm and cold colors does not merely add to the aesthetic quality – it also provides a more pragmatic function: The different bands indicate where you should press the kitchen doors to open them, while also protecting the surface from the wear of everyday use. The metal bands can endure a harsher form of cleaning, and after some time the different precious materials will develop a patina that adds a unique feature to your kitchen.
You can order one or both samples in the two HLA variants below. A sample costs $40 per piece, and the amount will of course be deducted from your final order. All samples are 16 × 8 in. See all our samples here.
HLA’s design combines soft wood and hard metal. Drawer fronts and cabinet doors are available in two designs: One spray-painted white with a metal band painted in the same color, the other in oak veneer with a band of copper strip. The color and surface of the untreated copper change over time and it develops its own unique character.
Fronts and doors are designed the same way – with a 4 ¾" wide metal band along the side.
Both fronts and doors have a thickness of ¾". The glued metal band is little less than 1/16".
It is not possible to varnish or change the colors on the cabinet fronts and doors. The white front is matte white (NCS S 0500-N gloss 20), while the veneered oak version is coated with wax.
HLA recommend a ¾" countertop in solid oakfor both kitchens. The price of your countertop depends on the size, number of 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.
HLA suggests using cover panels in the same material as the surface of the drawer fronts and cabinet doors. The toe kick looks its best in the same material as the metal on the fronts – copper or stainless steel.
