A shared office kitchen gets the Midas touch
IT SEEMS WE ALL LOVE AN IKEA HACK, even celebrated fashion designers like Stine Goya. While renovating her new office and showroom space in Copenhagen, the Danish designer wanted to create a stylish social hub and kitchen where her staff could congregate, relax and swap ideas. Enter design studio Reform, which collaborates with leading architects and interior designers to create customised Ikea kitchens. Stine was drawn to the “Chelsea” design by Copenhagen local Christina Meyer Bengtsson, with its grey, mauve and brass accents, and asked Reform if they could do something similar for her, made entirely of shiny brass to tie in with her label’s signature use of bold colours and shapes. The result is a gleaming wall of brass-panelled cabinets and cupboards with a black laminate benchtop for contrast. Warm yellow walls and timber floors complement the golden tones, while a selection of vases, artworks and other decorative objects add a homely feel.
