Note Design Studio and Reform Provide a Scandinavian Palate in Frame Collaboration
Clean lines with warmth. That’s the philosophy behind Note Design Studio, a collective of architects, designers, and strategists, headed by partners Kristoffer Fagerström and Daniel Heckscher, who bring the best of each discipline to the Swedish firm’s varied portfolio. Reform, meanwhile, is a Danish manufacturer with a unique approach: creating products that coordinate with and upgrade IKEA’s simple, self-assembled furniture systems. Their collaboration, Frame, offers cabinet fronts of quarter-sawn European oak veneer that fit IKEA Sektion bases. They come painted light blue or white or in natural dark oak, and with an optional solid-surfacing countertop.
