iF concept design award 2010

Along worldwide urbanization a target group of young professionals that prefer inner city living
Is growing. High living standards meet limited space, not offering a separate kitchen anymore.
The concept considers the expectation of a target group that rarely cooks but still demands a full kitchen setup.
It combines the kitchen table with the main kitchen element to create a generous table surface that also can be used for preparation & work.
Key elements that allow for a multipurpose use and cooking right at the table are defined surfaces that use induction to heat cookware and wirelessly power electronic devices.
