Gallery: Indelibly Green Danish Kitchen Designs Hit New York

 

Danish architect Knud Kapper has drawn from the tradition of handmade, mid century furniture to create the new eco-friendly Living Kitchen Architecture series which was recently unveiled in New York.

    Mr. Clicky, I was wondering the same exact thing and I am the one who wrote the press release! The press release is very much different in verbiage, but with similar concepts. This is a very well thought out and studied analysis/description of this product. It is the author’s original work and opinion, which I agree with and am appreciative of. It’s a stunning product, and is designed with much intelligence and with an ergonomic as well as a sustainable purpose.

    How inspiring! The Europeans really “get” innovation in design while caring for the environment. I love the wood that is shown in the furniture. I just want to touch it! Also the clean lines are very inviting and that firepit in the wall, ooooohhhh la la. You continue to inspire me Inhabitat with your eco-fabulous reporting. I’m going to blog about this soon on my eco-blog: http://www.planetpinkngreen.com where I spend most of my days highlighting those high thinkers and eco-action-mavericks who are shaking up the planet in healthy and meaningful ways. Keep up your great work! —Cheryl Janis from Planetpinkngreen.com

    There are different views on the sustainability of FSC and PEFC certified wood. While FSC has a more environmentalist approach, PEFC has a more industry-friendly approach. FSC is also more independant from the wood industry, There is a blog entry under http://publicaffairs.twoday.net/stories/4625401/, but it is only in German.
