Micro-Compact Living: Kitchen in a Drawer
We wanted to revisit the Electrolux Design Lab 2008 competition we talked about earlier to point out another product idea we especially liked: the super-space-saving Kitchen Works in a Drawer. This year's competition addresses food storage, cooking and washing designs based around the “internet generation's” core interests and concerns, which they have identified as: mobility, convenience, time, materials, personalization, entertaining, technology and sustainability.
One standout from the competition is the Kitchen Works in a Drawer. It's a minimal kitchen set up about the size of a small filing cabinet. This small package contains a one burner stove top and refrigerator drawer that pull out when you need them, and slide back in to save space. Separating the two is another storage drawer that acts as a barrier between the hot and cold elements. Nice solution for small spaces, once in a while chefs and frequent movers.
