Space is something you cannot get enough of – especially in the kitchen, where things are usually super-crammed. So here’s your challenge: fit a compact yet complete kitchen into one square meter when it’s closed up. You should keep the kitchen, and enough storage to cook and clean up easily within a very tiny limit.
Here’s how design students Kristin Laass and Norman Ebelt made it work. Their quite brilliant solution, to accommodate all the various ways that we use the kitchen was one of the entries in the DMY international design festival berlin 2010.
Tiny spaces reduce your carbon footprint too, because it takes less energy to keeps a small space comfortable, and they reduce your tendency to accumulate a lot of of stuff, because there’s just nowhere to put it all.
From dmvA Aitecten here is yet another colorful solution to hide the kitchen in plain sight behind a folding wall. An elegant dining and entertaining room turns to a kitchen. Just slide the panels to the side.
Another way of making a kitchen disapear is to slide the entire thing up and down. To cook, you’d take out the ingredients you will be using, then slide the entire cabinet up on automated sliders.
Once the the entire kitchen cabinet is up in its workspace configuration, you can cook and wash up. When you finish cooking, clean up and slide it down closed. The sink faucets can slide up into an empty space hidden in the upper cabinet, and there is a small space recessed into the top cabinets above the stove burners.
