Sometimes a detail is needed that simply stands out – adding a unique and dynamic touch to a uniform interior. With HASSLARP kitchen front we wanted to create a new look in wood. We were inspired by classic craftsmanship where wooden decorative patterns are made with different tones.
Our range includes many different kitchen fronts that create contrasts in the kitchen. Yet we lacked an interesting front in wood. Sara Åberg was part of the team that developed HASSLARP and reflects on how the idea came about. “We started looking at classic patterns for wooden floors, such as chevron and fishbone. They are based on classic craftsmanship where decorative patterns result from fixing together smaller pieces of wood. We wanted to create a modern interpretation of them."
At one supplier, Sara and the team found an interesting technique called technical veneer. "It’s a rather complicated process where wooden veneers are dyed in three different tones. These veneer layers are pressed together into thicker cubes – and when they are cut diagonally it results in thin, diamond-shaped layers with an interesting pattern. In the final step, the veneer layers are fixed together into larger fish bone patterned sheets that are mounted on the cabinet front."
HASSLARP is perfectly color-matched with SINARP kitchen front in wood, but can also be combined with other single-colored doors in our range to create an exciting contrast. Or why not mount them on some cabinets and build a more furniture-like standalone? “With just a few doors, HASSLARP makes it possible to create a new look for the kitchen with a high-quality and artisanal feel that has a modern twist. I think the classic pattern highlights wood in a really interesting way."
