Bright pops of color draw the eye to specific objects instead of pointing out spatial restrictions. The centerpiece of this Bratislava kitchen is the cabinetry surrounding the sink, a feat architect and resident Lukáš Kordík managed by altering the facing and pulls of an off-the-rack Ikea system. The laminate offers a good punch of blue, and in modernist fashion, Kordík forwent door handles in favor of cutouts. “I wanted the kitchen to be one simple block of color without any additional design,” he says.
