Following the high level of interest in Tom Dixon’s TD Beam kitchen featured in yesterday’s post, we are following up today with a little more of a good thing. Designed by Tom Dixon in collaboration with Danish artisan manufacturers, Ekoij – The TD Beam kitchen is currently available for both commercial and residential use.
The inspiration for the forward thinking design was drawn from the four elements – earth, water, fire, and air. The result is a free standing kitchen that entirely revolves around a central solid iron beam. It’s from this main beam that a series of customized cantilever planes protrude.
The cantilevers serve a dual purpose – functioning as work surfaces as well as points of attachment for free hanging appliances.
While the system is a delicate balance of positive and negative space, the designers selected a bold material palette of iron, brass, wood and aggregate stone to underscore the kitchen’s ‘hardworking nature’.
Recently, Switzerland based interior designer Roger Stüssi incorporated the TD Beam into the loft-like residence you see here.
