Norm Architects and Reform Collaborate on Profile Kitchen Front Series

“At Norm,?we find designing products that last is an overlooked driver of sustainability,” one of the Danish designer shares.

For their second collaboration with fellow
Danish firm Norm ArchitectsReform focused on one simple element: the handle. That’s the central
feature of Profile, a system of kitchen fronts and countertops intended to be used with IKEA kitchen carcasses as well as Reform’s own. The
integrated handle has a gently extruded and rounded aluminum profile, lending the design its name, and is available in a white powder-coat or three anodized metallic finishes. It’s recessed within the MDF kitchen fronts, lending the collection a clean, minimalist look. Kitchen fronts come in five subtle tones of matte spray paint: Gray, Dark Gray, Sand, White, and Anthracite. Or choose from dark or natural quarter-sliced European oak veneer. Countertops, meanwhile, can be found in Fenix laminate or a robust ceramic manufactured at high temperatures so hot pans can be placed directly on the surface without damage.
