Kitchens of the Future

Tomorrow’s kitchens may be radically different from the ones we have now. They need to be space-saving, sophisticated, and more than anything, be kind to the environment. Take a close look at these kitchens of the future for you may be using one sooner than you expect (Especially since some of them are already out on stores!).

The above kitchen (designed by Cheng He, Liu Guang Kui and Zhou Dong from China) was the winning design at “Kitchen is heart of the home”, a kitchen design contest organized by DesignBoom where 2980 designers from 102 countries participated. Sow how does it work? Here is the description from the designers themselves.

(1). Creating the new concept of happy kitchen: Sharing the joy with relatives and friends face-to-face.

(2). Cupboard adopts double-deck rotator structure, can rotate 180°respectively, the three major work center of washing, mixing and cooking can rotate in the front of the operator, let “zero” distance in each workflow; And can lift in certain distance in order to be suitable for the different operator.

(3). Flume has two kinds of outlets: The parallel water outlets of induction type lie on both sides of flume; The holding type faucets with metal hose lie in the middle of two flumes, that can be suitable for operating under various environments.

(4).Abandon the board type, slide rail and hinge of the traditional cupboard completely. This cupboard regards the structure frame of aluminium alloy and the combination of stainless steel pipe as the integer structure. Adopt level bearing, hydraulic pressure system, shutting system to realize lifting of cupboard and wall cupboard.

(5). Integrative structures with operational table-board, flume and kitchen, cupboard distribute icebox, disinfector and oven symmetrically, other borders are closets.

(6). Lower cupboard is drawing structure, can pull out wholly while using, and make the operation simplify. Hang the kitchen ventilator under the top cupboard with function of illumination.

Here is another concept kitchen designed by Hieu Tranngoc and Hao Tran from Vietnam which drew inspiration from the shape of an apple tree with fruits hanging from its large branches. It incorporates a closet, a small fridge, an electric cooker, and the microwave oven the two large fruits hanging from the two branches. Additionally, there is provision for mounting an LCD monitor if you are into browsing while you cook.

At first glance, Lebrun‘s design looks more like a kitchen garden than the actual kitchen. But that is before you get to know that the panel can be opened to reveal a workspace, cooking surface and sink. The plants on top are specialized ones that were developed by the aerospace industry for their filtering and cleaning properties. They provide a renewable supply of clean water and vegetable soap.

If you are conscious of conserving space, you will like this design by Fevzi Karaman which packs nearly everything the kitchen needs in one sleek module.

Alight kitchen from Altera Design Studio is an award winning design at the Incheon International Design Competition 2007 and it hosts a number of features.

Only ready-made food and beverages are consumed in sheet-metal packaging so people will be conscious about what and how much they eat.

Food and beverages packs will be kept inside the cooling unit of the system. It only allows storage of 3 days’ worth of food.

A Smart oven warms up the food in groups to minimize how often it’s used. It arranges the ideal time and temperature for the packs by reading their barcodes.

There are 4 hollow plates located on the main dining table. Each of them can rotate on its center-axis so you can eat on the either side of the plate. The center of the table houses a small flatware station.

The integrated dishwasher conserves water by filtering and reusing previous wash water.
All plates are stored underneath in their own compartments.

Whirlpool’s ‘green kitchen’ is a concept that pays a lot of attention to reduce wastage by diverting 60% of the water and heat generated from itself to fuel other appliances or functions in the kitchen. For example, it uses the heat from the fridge compressor to produce hot water for the dish washer.

Okay, so far we showed you kitchens that are not in the market yet. But those below are already out.

For example, this tech kitchen from designer Sebastien Poupeau is height adjustable, music enabled and web connected.

Who says the kitchen table needs to be rectangular? Not Enex… Their curvilinear design breaks away from the conventions and the kitchen seems to be taken right out of a Sci-Fi flick! Built in entertainment system seems to be a nice touch too.

More curvy kitchen workspaces…

This unit from Tokyo Kitchen can be arranged in a variety of ways depending on your space. It is aesthetic and functional with three electric cooking rings, a generous circular sink and plenty of space for storing kitchen items.

Kids Room Ideas – Set 3

Designing a room for kids is very different from designing one for adults. Children use their rooms for playing games, studying, listening to music, day-dreaming and what not! In this post, we will share a few quick tips on designing a kid’s room and also give you some inspiration to work with.

Tips for Designing a Kid’s Room

1. Talk with the child for getting his/her opinion about what their room should look like.

2. Children use the room for a variety of purposes. So it would be ideal if the room is designed to be multi-functional with play area, reading space, entertainment space, etc.

3. Keep safety a priority. If for example, the child’s room is next to stairs, make sure the stairs have railings. Keep the furniture clear of the doorway and install a night light in the room.

4. Ensure enough storage space for toys, clothing and other stuff that kids treasure. Though clutter may be a matter of opinion, try assigning a place for everything.

5. Bring in a surprise element! For example, kids love secret spaces! Try to fit one in if the room layout allows you.

Creative Offices

We thought twice before filing this under Home Office Designs but decided to go ahead, because we believe if you are seeking inspiration before designing your home office, you should definitely take a look at these. This is how the Pros do it. It is not uncommon for corporate giants to woo their employees by giving them designer workplaces. Guessing by these images, who wouldn’t be enticed?

1.Red Bull

If your company produces an energy drink, your offices better show it. Check out Red Bull’s office designed by Jump Studios.


Do you think people can dream up movies like Finding Nemo, Incredibles, Wall-E in regular office cubicles? No Chance!

The Pixar office shown above is designed by Bohlin Cywinski Jackson.

3. Google

Quite honestly, none of us here would want to work at Google. With hammock workspaces, recliners (and relaxing aquariums to stare at while you are in them), massage parlours, personalised cabins, slide-downs between floors, we are pretty much sure of getting carried away and having ourselves fired!

Office designed by Camenzind Evolutionhas.

4.Three Rings Design

Three Rings Design opted for old world charm over the ultra-modern style. This office was designed by Because We Can.


TBWA is a global advertising company working with Apple and Adidas and they used Klein Dytham‘s services to convert an amusement complex to a rather amusing office.
