Reform Your IKEA Kitchen

, , , , By Catherine

Reform is a young Danish company is a new (and welcomed) player on the design scene. Its goal is to provide everybody the “opportunity to experience extraordinary design at reasonable prices”. Reform has collaborated with top designers and architects to create unique fronts and tabletops to fit IKEA’s METOD and FAKTUM kitchen.

Bjarke Ingels GroupHenning Larsen ArchitectsNorm Architects, as well as designers at Reform, each came up with a cool design – See below.

The Reform fronts and tabletops will be available from September 2015.

From Reform:

“The kitchen is one of the most important rooms in our homes. Oddly enough it is often overlooked when it comes to design. For the most part our kitchens are white and as neutral as possible. We want to change this. That is why we collaborate with the best Danish and internationally acclaimed architects in order to reform our kitchens – and by implication our everyday life – with great design.

IKEA excel when it comes to delivering value for money – Great quality at affordable prices. That is why we choose to hack their kitchens. Not someone else’s. Their kitchens deliver great quality while being highly functional and easy to install. To our minds it’s the perfect combination partnered with Reform’s novel and architecturally inspired designs.



Kitchen by Bjarke Ingels Group:
Characterised by its elegant handle made of something as unconventional as seat belt fabric, you get a hyper modern kitchen, designed by the most renowned architectural firm right now. 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.

Kitchen by Henning Larsen Architects:
Simple, elegant and inspired by a classic carpentry-kitchen. The metal pieces which mark out the push-function stress the sharp and timeless lines of the design. One is made from oak veneer with a beautiful band of copper while the other is spray painted white or black with a steel band in the same colour.

Kitchen by Norm Architects:
The kitchen is simple, but exclusive in its timeless design. Carrying no handles, it presents a table top covering the entire surface and adding to it an exquisite finish – like the best design furniture. The materials, which have seldom been used in kitchens, give away a clean but raw expression. They come in four different variants: Fiber-concrete, bronzed tombac, sawn oak and smoked oak.

Kitchens by Reform:
The Basis kitchen doors and drawer fronts are the essence of purity and streamlined design. The Basis design comes in the two editions – Basis 01 and 02 and is Reforms inhouse models, which it all started with and we are still big fans. Both models is characterised by the classic carpenter milled in handle in oak or smoked oak, a detail which gives the design an elegant contrast between the clean painted surface and the warm texture from the natural wood.”
