New Collection Launch in collaboration with 101 CPH

 On September 17th 2020, fronteriors launched their new collection for the BESTA, BILLY, PAX and METOD series. These operate on three styling techniques namely: Basic, framed and recessed. The basic style is a sleek and simple cutting, the framed style is a slightly elevated cut and finally, the recessed styling is a much more complex retro cut. All three styles are available in the fronteriors signature colour palette: beige, grey, black, white and green.


The quality of materials used along with a revolutionary new water-based paint (90% less solvents used), gives this collection the right to be within the limelight. The doors are beautiful on their own or in combination with complementing sides, tops and handles.

As a means to provide access to trendy designs, a collaboration has been made with a widely known Scandinavian interior styling brand, 101 CPH. This  enables them to feature the brand’s brass Hihat knobs to their design collection. This collaboration improves the aesthetics and outlook of their products significantly.
To express their excitement, Kristian A. Hansen, founder and partner at 101 CPH ,said “We are very excited about the collaboration with Fronteriors and we find that the brands are a great match in terms of design profile and the quality of their materials. The Hihat knobs add a stylish touch to the front elements, and the solid brass material will wear beautifully over time.”
