Form 2 – a thoroughly minimalist kitchen

Form 2 is a thoroughly minimalist kitchen. It’s minimalism at its most beautiful and sets the agenda for the future. When Carsten Michelsen designed Form 2 in 1997, it was based on a desire to design a genuinely minimalist kitchen. With Form 2 he defined how a beautiful and stylish kitchen can complement the stylish home.

Form 2 has long since become a classic that transcends time. A time in which many of us cultivate a classic and timeless design that lasts for generations. Totally in line with sustainable thinking.

The clean expression of Form 2 is emphasized by the handleless design. If you choose Form 2 in one of the many types of wood, the beautiful sweeping grain contributes to the tranquillity and clean lines.

Form 2 can be manufactured with several different surfaces, including exclusive metal surfaces. Maybe you’ll choose to have a kitchen island or a section of cabinets made of brass or steel? Metal surfaces provide the kitchen with a unique, minimalist look.

“A kitchen is not only about practicality and functionality. It’s also about the daily enjoyment.”

Carsten Michelsen,

Your kitchen is a living space

Your kitchen’s not just a kitchen – it’s a living space. A room that has been made especially for you and your family. A place where you can enjoy life in the company of each other and guests. We are specialists in designing open kitchens with elegant pocket doors, which make it possible to close off the kitchen when you’ve finished using it. In an instant, your kitchen is transformed into an iconic furniture design: two very different atmospheres created from one design.

“We went for a simple kitchen that also stood out enough as a piece of furniture in the room,” say the architect couple who have built a minimalist home from concrete at the edge of Flensborg fjord. They ended up choosing the black Form 2 kitchen from Multiform, which stands out beautifully against the concrete walls and solid oak floors.
