Muller Van Severen Designs a Colorful Update for Reform’s Kitchen Cabinet Line
Muller Van Severen offers a bold update for kitchen cabinets in the form of customizable color-block fronts. Designed for Reform, the Belgian artists (Fien Muller is a photographer, Hannes Van Severen a sculptor) looked to Sol LeWitt murals for inspiration as well as to their own recent projects, in particular, their multi-hued cutting boards. The couple revisited the same HDPE used for the boards to create faces for the six-color Match system. “We have always loved polyethylene,” Fien states. “It has the appearance of candle wax, instead of a cold, smooth plastic.” After testing models to get the color combinations just right, they upped the sophistication factor with brass hardware and kickplates and countertops of white or veined Italian marble.
