Handmade Finnish kitchens by Carpenter Collective

I just found these in my inbox, and thought they were too nice not to share with you. Cargo kitchens are designed by Kaisa Luukkanen of Carpenter Collective and hand made by skilled carpenters.

The first kitchen is located at Luovi`s office in the Old Customs Warehouse in Helsinki. Luovi produces Helsinki Design Week. The second example below is a transformable kitchen situated in a 100 years old wooden house in Hyttikortteli, a housing area built for glass workers in the 1910's in Riihimäki, Finland.
I really appreciate the simplicity in these designs, far from industry standards, and I also love the visible gas containers, adding an industrial touch to the kitchens.
Happy midsummer everyone!
