The Kin Collection: Cabinets for Compact Quarters

February 16, 2017

Mathias Hahn calls his Kin collection, “a family of cabinets.” And like most clans, his comes in a range of kindred shapes and sizes. Or, as he puts it, “Each has its own character and yet harmonizes perfectly with its siblings.”

Hahn trained in industrial design in his native Germany before studying under Ron Arad at London’s Royal College of Art. He received the 2010 German Design Award as Newcomer/Finalist and has his own London studio with a client roster that includes Ligne Roset, Kvadrat, and Another Country. His new cupboards were designed for Zeitraum of Germany and unveiled at the recent Cologne Furniture Fair. They caught our eye as a good answer to countless storage questions.

In the US, the Kin collection is available from Suite NY; starting at $2,680, inquire for more details.
