Multiform Design Centre Copenhagen has received a prestigious order to supply kitchens and wardrobes for 43 luxury townhouses on the private island of Sivholm, which is located in the middle of Copenhagen’s docklands Sydhavn district.
Private island in the middle of Copenhagen’s docklands Sydhavn district
Sivholm is a private island of 7,000 square metres located in the middle of Sydhavn and 43 exclusive townhouses are currently being built there, ready for occupation at the end of 2019. The houses vary in size and prices start at DKK 10 million. All of the homes have private wooden terraces down to the canal and their own private bathing jetties down to the waterfront.
“We find that there are more and more exclusive developments in Copenhagen, where only the best is good enough – just like Sivholm. It has been a pleasure to fit out the townhouses in close collaboration with the property developer, NPV. Aesthetics, quality and functionality have been the focus throughout. Multiform fits in perfectly here,” says Lene Halse Hornemann, Multiform Copenhagen Proprietor.
She notes that it has been important to all parties to ensure that the kitchens in the homes on Sivholm are something special, as it is the most important room in the house, brings the home together and is where you spend several hours a day.
A classic moves in
And nothing has been left to chance. The houses are being fitted out with a true classic: the Multiform Form 1 series kitchen island, the basis for the company’s success back in the early 80s. The kitchen island is made from dark grey wood and has a marble worktop. All drawers are handmade and hand-joined using solid maple. The drawers are equipped with an electric opening function. There is also a white cabinet wall in the kitchen from the Form 2 series from Multiform.
Lasts for generations
All Multiform kitchens are made at the company’s workshop in Kibæk. Multiform was established in 1982. The founder, Carsten Michelsen, had a vision of designing timeless kitchens that, in line with the Danish furniture designers of the 1950s, would create classics that last for generations.
