Fabian and Dorothee Heine’s renovation began and ended with a particular kitchen system. Almost a year before finding the flat they would call home, the Hamburg-based couple decided upon a matte-black Vipp kitchen that Fabian had glimpsed in the window of the company’s Copenhagen showroom. "I took a picture and sent it to my wife," recalls Fabian, who was on a business trip at the time. "She totally agreed. We planned everything around that kitchen."
