The Haberdasher's Kitchen
Inspired by mid-century English furniture
The Haberdasher's Kitchen is a new modular kitchen range inspired by mid-century English furniture. It also serves as a redesign of our Air Kitchen range. Our original Air Kitchen caused quite a stir when it was first launched at 100% Design back in 2012. The modern retro design embraced contemporary materials and construction methods whilst taking cues from iconic mid-century designs, leading it to become something really special and quite different from our more traditional kitchen ranges. But times change and so do our tastes, and so 6 years later, our customers have a very different idea of what a deVOL Kitchen looks like and what it’s made from. We decided that it was about time to try out a fresh new perspective and we got to work on the designs with the aim of having it ready to show off at Clerkenwell Design Week 2018. It was clear straight away that we wanted to retain the mid-century style and unique design features like the curved laminated oak frames and rolled metal end panels but this time our inspiration was coming from a slightly different setting; namely, English gentlemen’s haberdasheries from the first half of the 20th century - hence the new name 'The Haberdasher's Kitchen'.
