Norm Architects and Reform Elevate the Handle in New Kitchen System Collaboration
For their second collaboration with fellow
Danish firm Norm Architects, Reform 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.
