The kitchen of this lakeside villa designed by Belatchew Arkitekter receives light from two sides. It has counters on two walls that face each other and both of them have large windows that completely replace the backsplash. The windows bring in light but more importantly offer wonderful views of the nearby lake and surrounding landscape.
New company Plykea launched a series of birch ply doors and worktops that can be attached to IKEA’s ‘Metod’ kitchen cupboards. Digital product designer Tim Diacon wanted a speedy way in which to create a handsome kitchen on a finite budget. Already possessing an IKEA kitchen Tim searched for a company that could make a set of birch ply fronts. Unsuccessful in his quest Tim turned to his friend Adam Vergette for help—Adam is a furniture designer and a one-time production worker with Vitsœ. The two men hatched a plan to create an online service that would provide reasonably priced bespoke plywood doors drawer fronts worktops and cover panels for IKEA kitchen cabinets: and so Plykea was born.
Warm inviting and calming the sporadic splattering of yellow in the form of interesting kitchen seating options and the fresh flowers gives this kitchen a unique and effervescent look. Despite using largely subdued shades the kitchen stands out thanks to these daft little touches and with ample natural ventilation thanks to extensive use of glass ‘fresh mornings’ is what this kitchen advertises with glee!
It’s almost easy to overlook the fact that this kitchen is full of stainless steel. The details in the ceiling and upper cabinets are very much traditional but this kitchen comes into the 21st century when we look at the countertops and lower cabinetry which are all stainless steel and yet fit in perfectly with the more traditional pieces.
The most noticeable and iconic feature of this new kitchen series is the ‘frame door’ that combines a dash of Shaker furniture style and traditional kitchen door design with contemporary refinement and minimal modernity. The fusion is simply spectacular as these understated additions give the kitchen an entirely new look and set it apart from other contemporary compositions. Even in a crowd Carattere is instantly recognizable thanks to this signature feature that is available with two different variants. Whether it is with fixed handles or with grip integrated into the cabinet door these frame doors definitely make an immediate impact.
