“Be honest to the process and material, and remember that god sees all.”

That would be the advice renowned Danish architect Knud Kapper Hansen would give to an aspiring interior designer or architect. However, it applies just as well to the homeowner embarking on his or her own kitchen design project. Talking to experts and understanding how professional kitchens work will give you the practical tools you need to translate your dreams into reality.

In Knud’s mind, this comprehension is visualised in classic forms that follow function. In fact, this mind set is why his favourite kitchen furniture design remains untouched for 20 years. Serie 100 is the perfect example of his vision of modern kitchen spaces that break down the traditional barriers between cooking, dining and living. When his firm began to create kitchen designs beyond kitchen cabinetry it was considered cutting edge. Now, we know he was simply way ahead of his time.
