Living Kitchen - utilize efficiently the natural resources in home

We must admit that every piece from the Living Kitchen by Studio Gorm makes me feel like I found the dream kitchen setup. The idea of growing, storing, cooking and composting to grow more food, straight on your kitchen plot is simply an Oscar pretender.

The Flow Kitchen developed as a flexible system where resources like waste, water and energy are reused, thus way creating a dynamic and endless flow between the natural elements.

The most creative Flow's kitchen accents are:

1. The vertical hanging dish rack, not only save space, but also waters the planter boxes with herbs and edible plants, which are growing beneath it.

Living Kitchen - utilize efficiently the natural resources in home

2. Composter bin, which is charged with scraps by an integrated cutting board. It's simply a genius idea to produce nutrient rich fertilizer by breaking down the waste food - it's just a bit not right to grow worm farm in your kitchen to help you out turning the food into worm castings. In about 4 to 6 weeks the fertilizer can be used in the herb boxes, added to houseplants or the garden.

Living Kitchen - utilize efficiently the natural resources in home

3. The storage jars are made from unglazed earthenware with beech wood lids, so they can utilize the natural porous properties of earthenware, which creates an ideal environment for maintaining the consistency of bread, extending the life of garlic and onions, storing grains and growing herbs etc.

Living Kitchen - utilize efficiently the natural resources in home

4. That's not all folks - you also got evaporative cooling fridge box, utensil drawer in economic and easy to access format, the gas cook offering conventional standards with elegant top in floral patterns, comfortable bag rack to hang any shopping bags.

Living Kitchen - utilize efficiently the natural resources in home

Flow Living Kitchen is a brilliant idea, with a practical and conventional realization. We just believe that the successful design needs a pinch of sophistication and slickness which will makes out of Flow Living Kitchen a true bestseller.

4 extremely practical kitchen appliances by Tomas Kral

Tomas Kral became a designer by accident, as he explained, but his design talent is beyond any doubt. You can say that his latest work is outstanding with its design maturity and originality, but what really impressed me are couple of his old creations, which explore people everyday needs and gives a different meaning to the common objects, by optimizing their purpose. Following is a selection of Tomas Kral’s 4 extremely practical kitchen appliances:

Lap Counter
The Lap Counter is a plastic tray and a neat kitchen facility, which gives you the mobility to peel, chop, slice fruits and vegetables almost anywhere in the house. It’s ergonomically shaped to fit the lap of the sitting person and it’s molded for both a container and a working surface. It will barely sit on your drying rack or fit in your washing machine, so it’s better thinking in the direction of assembling different modules, but besides that the Lap Counter is a brilliant facility for your prep cooking comfort.

Jetspoon
It’s just a plastic spoon with a container for water, which will save you the effort to stir and pour out with both hands at the same time. It will be even smarter to dose the liquids inside the spoon for a given quantity of the product to stir.

Big Race
Is actually a bowl inspired and designed as a simple car. Big Race tends to change the way we percept traditional objects and give different user experience – no matter the age, everyone likes playing. As it comes in 3 different sizes you can easily pile the bowls up for space optimization. Simple, practical and stylish, the Big Race is a dream object in your kitchen.

Circular cut-out plug for safely and easily pulling it out

What a neat plug idea!
Bad quality plug, stuck in the socket is certainly a tricky situation, which even might freak you out, because pulling out the thing may electrify the shit out of you.
Kim Seung Woo made the unplug process a breeze even for a child – a circular cut-out allows you to pull the plug out of the power outlet with a minimum effort. Moreover, a discreet blue led light will remind you in the dark that it’s preferable to unplug before falling asleep, as you will further save energy from the stand-by mode waist.

Universal, stylish and safe plug

Stylish, practical and green – me like it.

Kim Seung Woo is a winner of a red dot award for design concept for 2008.
