Danish fashion designer Stine Goya’s recent spring/summer 2018 10-year anniversary collection featured more of her signature bold and brilliant colours and shapes: pinks, mustards, and Persian blue. Though across the floral motifs and sequinned stars on pantsuits, jumpsuits, billowing skirts and tiered dresses—the light was distinctly golden. Gold is, apparently, a favourite hue for the former fashion editor, model, and Central Saint Martin’s graduate.

So, when it came to the kitchen space of the Stine Goya showroom and HQ in Denmark, she picked a design by Christina Meyer Bengtsson for Danish design outfit Reform—but chose to clad it entirely in golden brass.

Reform’s sole business proposition is to—for want of a better word—‘hack’ IKEA kitchens through the vision of great architects and designers. The idea is to allow everyone to experience extraordinary design at an affordable price, and in their suite of options are designs from Norm Architects, Note Design Studio, and Afteroom. Christina Meyer Bengtsson’s Art Deco-inspired design donates 2% of sales to a New York charity centred on battling poverty and hunger by creating more jobs in the foodservice industry.

While the original Meyer Bengtsson design features panels of grey and muted pale pink, Stine Goya opted to add a little of her own design flair with custom-made panels in gleaming brass. Kitchen walls were painted in honey yellow, blending in with the brass cabinetry. The bare bones of the kitchen are IKEA, but the panels are all completely custom-made.
