Black, white, ultra-modern and minimalist, this elegantly simple design features an amazing array of capabilities hidden inside for cooking, cleaning, cooling and disposing of food. At just over a foot and a half wide by about a foot long, it may the most compact all-in-one, complete-kitchen furniture/fixture object even proposed – it has everything but the kitchen sink.
Like a portable cooking island, the entire system was designed by He Ruimin to move in any direction on wheels, with burner spots on the top for a chef on the go. This hot spot is covered by food cutting surfaces and preparation areas that can be pulled back to reveal the heating zone.
Fold-out kitchenware storage, a refrigerator door and disposal area all sit flush against the smooth curved side surfaces until needed. How does this design in particular manage to pack so much into such a small area? The main space-saving concept that works throughout the piece is quite simple: let no area go to waste in any of the three dimensions – such as the space typically lost beneath the open surface of a traditional table.
