The April 2010 edition of Forward Magazine, an informative magazine published by the Spinal Injuries Association, features an interview with our own Adam Thomas. In an edition focussing on Homes and Gardens, Adam talks about some recent advances in accessible kitchen design in an article entitled ‘Accessible Kitchens Come of Age’.
Prompted by the experience of working with the copywriters for the new Design Matters web site, Adam explains that the web people were unable to tell which kitchen images were for the accessible section of the web site and which were pictures of standard kitchens! This exchange made him realise that one of his personal goals had finally been achieved; attractive, accessible kitchens for all without compromise on style and finish.
Apart from some great photos, and useful web links, the article also highlights a few major design successes in the past year, namely a right-angled rise and fall worksurface and a new sink design for clients with electric wheelchairs. As Adam says in the article:
“The next design challenge will come through the door with my next client.” Get your copy of Forward Magazine to read the full article and watch this space for the next instalment in this remarkable journey.
We are working at full steam to prepare everything we need for Naidex 2010. Come and meet the Design Matters team on stand G106. And don’t just walk by, please pick up a brochure, have a good poke around our display kitchen and ask lots of questions. Because that’s why we’ve come!
This year we’re bringing along plenty of pictures of our recent work, as things are changing quickly in the world of accessible kitchen design and we want to be able to show visitors to our stand what we’ve been up to. Adam was recently interviewed for an article in the April edition of the SIA’s Forward Magazine focussing on the amazing transformation of Accessible Kitchens in the last few years. Entitled ‘Accessible Kitchens Come of Age’, the article shows a number of pictures illustrating that things are moving on rapidly, and that accessible kitchens are finally indistinguishable from standard kitchens. Look out for the April edition of Forward Magazine to get the full story.
