Our recent collaboration with Dinesen floors has mainly emerged from a common mindset, and with a passion for wood as a key point. For three generations, Dinesen have produced flooring in a sublime quality and almost all formats, and that we at Garde Hvalsøe, with a background as carpenters, have been brought up with great love for wood, in a unique Danish craft and design culture.
Model Dinesen has a bespoke kitchen or bathroom furniture, exclusively produced from specially selected Dinesen wood planks. We use the large format to create a continuous run in the veins of the wood on the drawer fronts, as well as in the actual piece of furniture that carries the drawers.
As one of our only kitchens, the Model Dinesen is placed on a steel frame. The frame – or the chassis – is made of waxed raw steel with brass details.
Dinesen produce their wood planks of Douglas pine and oak – and naturally, these two types of wood are the same in which we also build kitchens, with various options for surface treatments. For example, the oak can get “smoked” so it gets a darker glow like the smoked oak is known for.
If you happen to be fortunate enough to also have Dinesen planks on the floor, you will get the visual feeling, as if the kitchen is a natural extension of the floor. See and read more on the floors and materials on www.dinesen.com
