Smart storage provides flow in the kitchen
You've also probably experienced this: coming home tired and stressed after a long day, fully aware that both you and the rest of the family need food as soon as possible. But there are tricks that help make cooking in the kitchen easier and more enjoyable. With our wall-mounted kitchen storage series KUNGSFORS, utensils, spices and recipes have their given places on the wall instead of being spread out on the kitchen countertop. It provides you with plenty of space and a full overview of everything you need at hand so just sharpen the knives and let your inner chef blossom.
Perhaps it may be a little comforting that even a successful chef and cookbook writer like the Swede Maximillian Lundin sometimes feels tired and stressed when everyday food is about to be made. But he has his professional tricks that help make cooking easier. "A home kitchen is, of course, not the same as a restaurant kitchen. But there are a lot of practical things to be learned from a restaurant kitchen. Like having utensils and ingredients easily accessible so that you have a good flow when cooking, and have plenty of space on the kitchen countertop."

Furnish the kitchen wall

Maximillian calls himself a little "nerdy" when it comes to functionality, quality and hygiene in the kitchen. But for the team that developed KUNGSFORS ─ our wall-mounted series for open kitchen storage ─ his thoughts were valuable inspiration for the project. "We wanted to make a flexible storage solution that fits kitchens of all sizes", explains designer Ehlén Johansson. "Storage which you furnish your wall with so that you always have utensils and ingredients close at hand." Ehlén and the rest of the team developed different shelves, grids and rails that you either mount directly to the wall or on special suspension rails where you easily complete and move around the various functions without having to drill new holes in the wall. The rails have room for hooks meant for all the utensils, and also room for the special shelf where you can place a tablet with the dinner recipe at eye level (while also reducing the risk of spilling sauce on it).

Simplifies cooking

KUNGSFORS is a storage series with many different parts and the project required both time and patience from all involved, even for the engineer David Zeberg who worked closely with Ehlén. "One of the challenges was to make the wall brackets of the rails hidden. But I love projects where we do something pioneering and have to test boundaries before finding the solution." For the chef Maximillian, who is passionate about good food, it was a whole new experience to be involved in influencing people's kitchens ─ the environment where food is cooked. "The positive things was that everyone in the team was so ambitious about ensuring that KUNGSFORS would help to simplify cooking", says Maximillian. He is especially fond of the stainless steel containers that can hold fresh spices, oil or tasting spoons. "My daughters love to hang out in the kitchen and taste the food I cook so I want the spoons close at hand on the wall."

Designer thoughts

Designer: Ehlén Johansson

The most important thing when I designed the KUNGSFORS series was for it to spread the joy of cooking. The series helps you to have kitchen utensils, spices and ingredients visible, which I think makes the kitchen look nice ‒ while it encourages the appetite and desire to cook. I also wanted it to help make it simpler to keep things in order and make cooking easier. The parts can be combined in any way, so they fit both large and small kitchens ‒ and people's different needs.

Function solution

More space and better flow in the kitchen

When spoons, spices, and recipes have their given and visible place on the wall, you get more space and better flow when you cook. With the KUNGSFORS series, it's easy to create a personal combination and store everything so that items are easily accessible and you get a good overview in the kitchen, just like professional cooks. Place the pans on open shelves, the knives on magnetic racks, and utensils on hooks. Then you have everything close at hand and lots of space to work!
