“When you move from home to home, the most important furniture to bring along is the kitchen” is an Italian saying. The philosophy of Frama Studio in Copenhagen is that a kitchen should look like any other living space, outfitted with freestanding pieces that can work in any setting.

Niels Strøyer Christophersen established Frama Studio in 2008. It operates in various creative fields and directions from furniture, lighting, apothecary, books, apparel and kitchens. The Frama headquarters are anchored in a grand former pharmacy in the center of Copenhagen, with a retail place and café and defines its creative approach as a dialogue between two opposite poles -”between a classical and contemporary approach, and between digital and analogue production.”
The model-based and removable kitchen project began when the company set up its new studio in an old watch shop in Østerbro in 2012. The Frama Kitchen portrays the light expression of a piece of furniture within the kitchen environment. Every Frama Studio Kitchen is built upon a powder coated metal grid, providing an industrial but light approach.

Within the free-standing units, Frama has encased top of the line appliances while retaining a low-tech and analogue expression. They all have in common that they focus on natural materials, simple geometry and a general appreciation of permanency.
“We want to inspire people to see the kitchen as a base to build on. The idea of being able to take the kitchen with you when moving is also interesting from a sustainable perspective. Alternatively, that it is sturdy enough to last for generations,” says Strøyer Christophersen.
