The future of the kitchen was once imagined as increasingly technological, but lifestyles can take unexpected turns. Even in a global metropolis, in big residential buildings with their smaller living units, the desire to share the ritual of food remains. For those not wanting to give up the pleasure of cooking for themselves and their guests, the new concept of the “hidden” kitchen has been invented. At different times of the day, it appears and disappears behind an easy-to-open architectural wall that houses equipment and tools. Externally finished with fine wood panelling and made to measure, the wall itself becomes a furnishing element that dialogues beautifully with our favourite furniture – chairs, tables, sofas – just like people.
