New Reform Design
The Danish brand Reform projects start with a basic ingredient – elements from the Ikea kitchen. By adding their designed fronts and countertops by renowned architects and designers, it creates extraordinary design at a reasonable price and the kitchen gets a personal style that combines quality, construction, function and timeless design.
Reform has launched a new kitchen design created by the Danish designer Christina Meyer Bengtsson. Inspired by the eclectic style of Art Deco the kitchen has characteristic and unexpected combinations with distinct colors like golden brass, soft grey and tender mauve. With a black countertop the designer´s passion for contrasts is pure perfection. The golden brass in particular appears as luxurious and sophisticated, and is often used by Meyer Bengtsson in her design. The colors are to be mixed or be used with one tone dominating, and the design is available with or without brass handles.
The collaboration with Christina Meyer Bengtsson is extraordinary because it will benefit a New York charity founded by Bengtsson´s husband, chef and entrepreneur Claus Meyer. Meyer is the co-founder of restaurant Noma in Copenhagen, and is often accredited as the founder of the New Nordic Cuisine Philosophy around the world. He has for several years back established two restaurants in New York, and also founded Claus Meyers Melting Pot Foundation, a non-profit initiative in Brownsville, Brooklyn as well. Reform and Meyer agreed on a collaboration that resulted in Christina Meyer Bengtsson´s design, were 2% of each Reform kitchen sold will be donated to the foundation.
