MANO kitchenScandinavian Kitchen, Copenhagen
Kvik's kitchen series Mano is Danish design at its best. Mano means "hand" in Italian, and it's precise hands and crafts, the Mano series from Kvik is about. The horizontal lines are thought into a design context, so all lines continue across drawer and cabinet modules regardless of size and height. The long lines in the Mano kitchen go again throughout the kitchen, and the series is thus developed without interfering elements such as grip. The unique gripless doors and drawers are easy to open both up and down.

Anna Grethe Jørgensen of Kvik Denmark says kitchen islands offer people a chance to spend time together in their busy everyday lives. “Twenty years ago, we broke down the walls between kitchens and living rooms in order to bring people together in the kitchen,” she says. “Today, everyday life is busy and sometimes chaotic. More than ever, we need somewhere to be together, and the island often plays an important role in this. It’s where we can gather and concentrate on relationships, relax and talk. It is around the island that everyday life becomes surprising and the weekend magical,” says Jørgensen.
