Here’s What Happens When Starchitects Hack Together A Kitchen From Ikea
News from Co.Design:

Reform is a new Danish furniture company with an intriguing business model: By taking Ikea flat-pack kitchen components and modding them into custom units, it aims to give everyone the opportunity for high-end design at a reasonable price. For its current endeavor, the company is outfitting Ikea’s Metod line of kitchen cabinets with customized fronts and table tops designed by three of Denmark’s leading architecture firms—BIG, Henning Larson Architects, and Norm.
