Teppan / kitchen worktop


Inspired by the Japanese teppanyaki grills, Teppan is a playground for food. It packs everything you need for cooking in a footprint of only 1.3m² but still feels spacious.

Teppan can be used like any conventional cooktops, but the twist is: you don’t have to. Pans and dishes doesn’t have to exist in the new world with Teppan, simply cook directly on top and serve the food on the connected ceramic surface.

By simplifying and modularizing the cooking process, Teppan not only reduces the time spend to cook but also virtually removes the need to clean dishes.
