Danish design studio Reform has revealed its latest designer collaboration in creating a customised Ikea kitchen.
The new high-end kitchen hack was designed by Cecilie Manz, featuring Oregon pine slabs at a distinctive 45 degree angle.
The Danish designer worked with Reform to create the customised kitchen, which is entitled Degree.
The striking design takes Ikea’s Metod kitchen cabinetry to the next level, showcasing geometric notch handles and a steel benchtop which balances the natural warm tones in the timber.
"The 45-degree tilt of the veneer came about because I wanted to push something very classic," Manz told Dezeen. "Vertical Oregon pine looked nice but also slightly looking backwards – reminiscent of the 1960s. The handle gave the inspiration, a missing corner at a 45-degree angle."
"I'm not afraid of doing classic stuff," she added. "It lasts, and you should just be aware of where the 'boring' starts. I'm a huge fan of Oregon pine, the warmth, straight grains. And then it reminds me of my grandmother's fine aesthetics."
The collaboration comes on the back of Reform’s golden kitchen for the headquarters of Copenhagen-based fashion designer Stine Goya.
"We wanted to work with Cecilie as we were really fascinated by her design philosophy," Reform's founder and CEO Jeppe Christensen told Dezeen.
"She understands how important the details are – that's in line with Reform, as that's how you make an 'everyday classic' which is Reform's mantra," he added.
Reform’s custom-made kitchen cabinets, worktops, sinks and sidepanels fit Ikea’s Metod kitchen, and they can be shipped to Australia with a lead time of 10 to 14 weeks.
