Be Inspired: Bespoke Ovens
We asked the NKBA Insiders to share their best design find of 2019. Over the next few weeks, we’ll profile each Insider and what has inspired them this year.
My most surprising design find for 2019 to date has been the Bespoke Oven Collection by Monogram Appliances. The oven styling and product is a part of their new Minimal oven collection launching in 2020. Having said that, this specific series of Minimal ovens pictured are concept vehicles and were displayed at KBIS 2019.
The customization in these units can been seen in their exotic and luxurious material execution. Each unique but tonally pulling inspiration from the Monogram brand palette. I personally got to work closely with their industrial design team as they were in the development of these units. I was really amazed at the thought process, time and craftsmanship that is put behind bringing a product like this to life. We often take for granted the investment that is made in energy and resources to bring something inspirational and different to the market place. This wall of ovens was surprising in the sense that it challenged the expectation. In design or as designers, that is what we are here to do, challenge the predictable.
