Being sustainable is not a fashion or a trend, it is already a necessity and the firms whose actions can have the greatest impact on the environment echo this need with coherent and sustainable measures. The kitchen firm Kvik which competes in design and price (the latter to be highlighted) with Ikea is also committed to a greater commitment to sustainability and its latest Veda kitchen model is a good example of this.
In addition to having a minimalist, elegant, and affordable design Veda kitchen furniture is made entirely from recycled materials.
Along with Veda, Kvik also presents four new handle designs with which to define and choose the final kitchen style: modern, minimalist, industrial or classic and a new collection of accessories to personalize the kitchen.
These accessories, which will be available in four different colors (black, brass, dark chrome and gloss) include different hooks and a matching mixer tap. In this way, by choosing the color of the front, the handles and the accessories that best represent your style, you can create your own personalized and sustainable kitchen.
Natural wood or a smooth matte surface? With Veda both options are possible (and sustainable). You can opt for oak wood or, if you prefer, for its anti-fingerprint matte fronts, made with recycled PET plastic bottles. For every 60 cm of frontage, Kvik recycles between 40 and 50 plastic bottles. That means that each year more than 10.5 million plastic bottles are transformed into durable consumer goods.
In addition, the interior of its fronts hides a completely new product in the industry: Recycled MDF. The Danish company is rapidly increasing the amount of recycled materials in all its models with two clear objectives: to promote sustainability in the kitchen industry and be CO2 positive in 2025. The objective is that from September 2021 40% of Veda will be recycled materials, a percentage that will increase to 45% in January 2022 and will be 57% in autumn 2022 thanks to the changes implemented with suppliers.
VEDA kitchen furniture will be available in all Kvik stores from September 2021 in five different colors and finishes inspired by Danish nature: white, light gray, moss green, dark oak and light oak.
In addition, if you choose a Kvik laminate countertop, the sustainability percentage of the kitchen will be higher because a laminate countertop provides a lower CO2 footprint than synthetic stones or other compounds, so that between 80 and 99% of the kitchen could be recycled.
