FOLDING SPECIALTIES OF A KITCHEN

With the InFold Kitchen Concept you can no longer use “lack of space” as an excuse to cram in more appliances or whipping up a gourmet meal. What it’s really about is this, a modular wall-mounted kitchen but with everything fold-able. The appliances, sink, cooking platform, chairs, cooking range, all fold up vertically into the length of the wall. This ways, all you ever need is a good sized empty wall and adequate floor space to move around in.

The way we are making advances in modular kitchen layouts, this concept doesn’t seem too farfetched. Only a few tweaks required!

InFold Kitchen is a part of the Electrolux Design Lab Competition.

tomas kral references japanese architecture in furniture collection for křehký

slovakian designer tomas kral has unveiled ‘torii’, a furniture collection influenced by the traditional shapes and forms of japanese architecture. presented at designblok 15, prague’s annual design and fashion week, the wooden table, bench, and stool have been produced by czech brand křehký‘the collection is inspired by fundamental architectural structures made from wood and stone — dolmens, menhirs and torii shrine gates — which are symbols of relaxation in japanese mythology,’ explains kral.

focusing on the shared time spent gathered around a communal table, the pieces espouse a simple, yet distinctive philosophy — formed of both round and rectangular timber components. ‘torii is a collection for those moments we spend dining with family or relaxing with friends. a table with a place for everyone,’ kral continues. ‘combining two standard solid profiles — cylindrical and rectangular — both the design and feel of the structure endow these solid-wood objects with sovereign, almost figural features’.

offering a degree of adaptability, the simple nature of the product means that standards parts can be cut to create a range of seats and tables of different heights and lengths. meanwhile, the relatively straightforward design seeks to establish a connection with the natural world. ‘even though it is simple, it summons up a permanent link with the forest from where these pieces come,’ commented křehký‘we were immediately taken with the collection’s blend of structure, simplicity, wit, austerity, and also with the associations it evokes.’
