Norwegian design firm Ask og Eng was based by Kine Ask Stenersen and Kristoffer Eng in 2016 after having constructed a number of sustainable kitchens and furnishings for themselves over quite a lot of years. Since then, they continued rising and their bamboo kitchens and storage options have discovered a spot into many trendy trying houses.
Their newest undertaking is a newly constructed house in Ålesund, Norway, the place they designed a kitchen, wardrobe, laundry and toilet, all made out of bamboo, their signature materials. They select bamboo as the principle materials due to its top quality and sturdiness and it’s additionally a sustainable selection because it grows method quicker then bushes (as much as a meter a day). Which means that the bamboo is able to be harvested after 4-6 years – compared to bushes that use about 50 years.
I feel the totally different bamboo textures are paired up completely with the wooden and concrete surfaces of this new constructed house and this house is a primary instance of what might be achieved with inventive, customized design.
