a designed custom kitchen by Studio Thier&vanDaalen, 2017
This kitchen has a high level of tactility due to its colours & materials.
The studio explored the possibilities of HI-MACS by using a corresponding and contrasting colour for the liquid version. Instead of using the liquid version in an invisible way, they used it as a decorative part of the design.
During the Dutch Design Week in 2016 they showed their experiments with this solid surface material. That was the point were their friends (the kitchen owners) said, we like to have this in our kitchen and the studio said; yes why not!
The kitchen exists out of a Hi-Macs worktop cocoon (seamless worktop, sides, back and ceiling) the kitchen fronts are made of birch plywood with Forbo with brass handles. With a remarkable and infinite decor line, developed by the studio.
HI-MACS, also known as natural acrylic stone, is a beautiful sheet material that feels smooth and soft like natural stone and is available in many colours. This material is mainly used in kitchens and bathrooms, because of the unique hygienic properties.
It is seamless & non-porous without crevices or surface irregularities where harmful bacteria and mold may reside. Stronger surface with durability similar to that of natural stone, wear and tear with higher resistance to stains, chemical & heat.
Feel free to contact the studio if you are thinking of a new design kitchen. We like to advise you about colour, material, possibilities, solutions and off course the budget.
With the kitchen leftovers we designed also coffee tables and food dishes of solid surface material.
During the Dutch Design Week ’17 we curated an expo around the custom made kitchen have a look here: THE YOUNG COLLECTORS
