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.
