Hansen Living kitchens

The Danish furniture company Hansen Living has just announced three new eco-friendly kitchen designs by the architect Knut Knapper. The Series 100 leans to the more traditional look and feel, and the Series 200 is inspired by Japanese minimalism. The Instant Kitchen is for small spaces, incorporating the cooktop, oven, dishwasher, refrigerator, mixer (faucet) and mechanical entries into one freestanding unit. Everything is made of solid woods from managed forests: choose between plantation-teak, walnut, ash or oak. The finishes used are an all natural wood treatment, based on renewable plant materials. Since the furniture is solid wood, maintenance is a snap - just lightly sand and re-oil.
This stuff, years from now, has developed their own beautiful, rich patinas as they age and have been used for what they are: honest-to-god, handcrafted well-used furniture. Warm, natural modernism at it’s best.
Hansen Living is now in the USA.
