These Ikea Hacks by Bjarke Ingels and More Are Rather Suave

Copenhagen, Denmark-based high-design retailer Reform has debuted a line of Ikea kitchen cabinetry hacked by a triumvirate of Danish design studios, and the results are quite sleek, if not necessarily what you'd expect from Ikea furniture given a DIY upgrade. But these are the professionals, after all. Reform has made a name for itself hacking Ikea's Metod line of kitchen cabinetry, and the firms—BIG, Henning Larsen Architects, and Norm.Architects—seem to have taken that a step further, outfitting their hacks with luxe materials like smoked oak, copper, and less conventional materials like discarded seatbelt straps (used as handles in BIG's submission, seen above). Customers can order custom cabinetry from this line or any of Reform's other products via the company's website, reformcph.com.
