Meyer Bengtsson Kitchen for Reform

New York and Copenhagen-based Christina Meyer Bengtsson recently launched a kitchen design for Reform. The collaboration for Reform will benefit a New York charity founded by Bengtsson’s husband, chef and entrepreneur Claus Meyer – who is also known as cookbook author and co-founder of the groundbreaking world-best restaurant Noma in Copenhagen.

Bengtsson, who was particularly inspired by the eclectic style of the Art Deco era, wanted to design a kitchen that would celebrate unexpected combinations. As such, distinct colors, such as golden brass and soft mauve, were used in combination with the black countertop to reflect Bengtsson’s passion for contrast.

The brass, in particular, has been used throughout Bengtsson’s other design projects as a detail to exemplify a sense of luxury and sophistication. The panel colors can be mixed, as they were designed to be, or isolated, with one tone dominating the room. The design is available with or without brass handles.
