“Yellow Dot Kitchens consists of one kitchen design with a choice of round or rectangular reverse-machined handle details,” says MacLean. Each one “is a bespoke piece designed for each individual space,” including a custom-designed plywood carcass—so MacLean has no constraints with standard sizes.
As an early example, MacLean installed a Yellow Dot design in a West London family home. Though most Yellow Dot Kitchens are boldly colored, with laminated plywood doors and matching countertops, this one is more subdued in hue.
