Urban Influence on Natural Materials

We’ve posted before about Kronospan and its Fresh 2 range, where rustic, vintage images were used to inspire the melamine -face products. This design, however, came from an unlikely source: a railway station escalator.

Taking inspiration from the clean lines of such an environment, the panelling uses horizontal lines to achieve a simple, uncluttered aesthetic, suitable for modern and minimalist environments.

An excellent example of how this panel design and its unusual inspiration might marry up is in this brilliantly conceived kitchen inspired by the London Undergrounds escalators…

The dark panelling really lends itself to the unusual angles, and looks brilliant against stark colours.
