Moments

We are at a stage in our lives where we know what we want.

When building a home for their family near the Danish west coast, Annie and Per did not go for standard solutions. They wanted a kitchen that was not only highly functional, but also a pleasure to live in. A floating black kitchen island is the centre of a spacious kitchen where the appliances are elegantly hidden behind pocket doors. A combination of form and function that creates not just a great kitchen, but also a timeless piece of furniture.

Our kitchen is a living space where we enjoy life.

Craftsmanship

Passionate craftsmanship
in a class of its own

A small workshop in Kibæk, western Denmark, is the core foundation for Multiform. All kitchens come to life through the passionate work of just 39 people, who stay true to the classic Danish cabinetmaker traditions. We take pride in creating handcrafted and iconic kitchen designs. Every time. Craftsmanship is the essence of Multiform.

The signature of
dedication

Every detail matters. All Multiform kitchen drawers are handmade according to classic crafting principles and with a profound respect for achieving genuine perfection. Our experienced cabinetmakers construct your new kitchen from scratch. We sort all timber and veneer by hand. We make all drawers by hand. And we still use dowels, pegs, dovetail joints, tongue and groove – simply because they last longer. The result is uncompromising quality.

Custom-made is
the new standard

We don’t sell ready-make kitchens. If achieving perfect symmetry means cabinets that are 28.7 inches wide, that’s the way we will build them.

Drawers with endless opportunities

To us, uncompromising quality and optimal proportions are a matter of course. We know that your needs are unique, and we believe that the same should be true for your kitchen – and your kitchen drawers. The drawers are built entirely from scratch and the handmade inserts in solid wood will be custom-made to match your needs. Specifically. Give the silver cutlery and the oyster knives a dedicated space or explore new ways of arranging things. Our main source of inspiration is you and we will take care of all the details.
We create homes that touch and enrich people every day.

Form 1 1982
Form 1 today

It all started in 1982 in Aarhus, Denmark. Carsten Michelsen had the vision of designing a classic and iconic kitchen. He essentially wanted to create a kitchen as a piece of architecture – on par with the creations of Arne Jacobsen, Børge Mogensen and Hans Wegner of 1950s’ Denmark. The result of the toils in his workshop was Form 1. A classic and timeless kitchen designed and built to last a lifetime.

    Specifications
      The solid wood for all our kitchens comes from a small, family-run sawmill in Austria. Driven by a passion for quality wood, their craft has been perfected through three generations. Traditional methods are honoured and combined with modern machinery, enabling the sawmill to supply a quality that is found nowhere else. You’ll notice the difference, when you see it.
