Minikitchen Is as Compact as Kitchens Get
December 18th, 2011
The world’s population continues to grow exponentially. It seems that pretty soon, earth is going to run out of land for us humans to live in. More and more residential buildings and condominiums are being built so the places where houses used to (or should be) can be used for shopping malls, amusement parks, and commercial centers.
As a result, residential units are also getting smaller and smaller. I think that’s one of the things designers Adriano Conti, Corrado Galzio and Alex Innamorati considered when they designed the Minikitchen, which is roughly the size of a washing machine.
The Minikitchen concept has everything that you’d need to cook, prepare, and store your food. Specifically, it has a vegetable washer, dishwasher, refrigerator, prep surface, small pantry, oven, and two other cooking systems so you can cook up most of your food without taking a lot of space at all. It’s perfect for a bachelor pad and would fit into tiny apartments with ease so you could have more space for all of your other stuff.
It’s a very neat idea, although I think the hard part lies in implementation, of course. It’s hard to imagine how the plumbing, refrigeration, food storage and heating systems could possibly fit into such a small container.
