Kitchen of the Week: A Modular Kitchen in Stockholm with a Seasonal (and Swappable) Palette

November 3, 2016

Designed by Perniclas Bedow of Bedow Design Studio, this small modular kitchen is designed to change colors with the seasons and is located in a 1909 house in a leafy neighborhood in Stockholm, on Bjorkvagen Street (which translates to Birch Street). “Instead of imitating a hundred-year-old style, I wanted to contrast the house’s history with a relevant contemporary expression,” he says. Take a look:

Above: The cabinet fronts are made of Valchromat, a through-color pine wood fiber panel available in nine different colors (shown here in yellow, red, and green). “The idea is to have four different sets, one for each season,” Perniclas says.
