Danish designer Knud Kapper believes that "a well designed kitchen should simply invite you to cook well and thus enrich your everyday life." Inspired by the work of some of Denmark’s and Europe’s finest chefs, his Hansen Living kitchens are designed with equal parts functionality, beauty and sustainability. His recipe: take beautiful, sustainably-harvested solid wood, add a pinch of classic Danish modern sensibility and top with non-toxic adhesives and finishes.
The result is "living kitchen architecture," as Kapper refers to it. It's not just another room in your house; it helps define your home, is designed to last for decades, and only gets better with age. Now, for the first time, Hansen Living is available here in the States through Susan Serra in New York. Plans are in the works for showroom display, and they'll be exhibiting at ICFF in May.
