Vintage Frank Guille for Kandya Kitchen Unit
Pickup currently unavailable
Guille’s furniture designs were led by his belief in functionality, utility and simplicity. His elegant furniture was visually simple and refined taking commissions from the likes of Heals and Kandya Ltd.
The Trimma range for Kandya was designed in the Mid 1950s as a modular storage system for domestic use. The range was focussed towards offering a flexible, modern solution for the changing contemporary kitchens. Floor standing and wall-mounting units could be selected in a range of combinations, with doors, drawers and glazed units.
With inspiration taken from the ‘Frankfurt Kitchen’ of 1927 by Grete Schutte-Lihotzky, the Guille design was space-efficient and expertly planned. The composition of drawers and doors and the use of coloured panels were carefully considered and introduced a new level of modernity to domestic interiors.
This absolutely beautiful tall unit is sure to be the focal point of any kitchen. With various cupboards and drawers in wood and glass, it's got ample storage space for a whole manner of items.
In general good condition with wear commensurate with age and use. It appears that the unit has been repainted at some point with some patched up areas of wood to the side as photographed. As such we're not 100% sure that all the white areas should be white and from other images the drawers and sides should potentially have been left as bare wood, however these units were customisable so maybe not. Please see photographs for full condition report.
Measures approximately 107cm wide, 38cm deep, and 175cm tall.
