I have long waited for Reform to collaborate with Dinesen, in my mind it was something just naturally bound to be, and I couldn’t be happier when the press email landed in my inbox with photos and news about the results of this collaboration.
For those that might not know Reform, Reform projects start with a basic ingredient – elements from the IKEA kitchen. Then you can add their architect-designed fronts and countertops to create an aesthetic and a personal style that combines quality construction, function and timeless design. New or old IKEA kitchens can be transformed completely, something I am also considering when renovating next time.
The new UP kitchen fronts are created with Architecture offices Lendager . Lendager UP, their initiative, enables the construction industry to address some of the most pressing global challenges through innovative resource use. The company was founded due to the lack of suppliers of upcycle products. Upcycling describes the process whereby the value of waste materials is increased through the recycling process, ideally also creating a product with a longer lifespan than the original.
From my tour to Dinesen this summer, I learned that they dont throw anything from the materials they use. From the smallest piece of wood that can be turned into a small chopping board, to the largest that needs to be treated specially so it won’t break (using the butterfly technique) , everything is used or recycled. Lendager takes this concept even further, instead of keeping these beautiful recycled pieces in the factory, but also taking pieces that are no longer used from displays, galleries, restaurants, any Dinesen project that is being redone, and using it to create the UP kitchen fronts for Reform. Brilliant and eco friendly, a design I can welcome to my own home anyday!
