When closed, this all-in-one kitchen cabinet takes up a minimum of space thanks in part to the layered approach to the door. This extra layer is also the key to keeping things handy – accessible from both sides, while also leaving space to reach into the main volume or pull something from the inside of the door when the object is opened.

The manufacturer, Bulthaup, explains what makes this space-saving all in one kitchen unit so useful and unusual.

“Everything you need in full view. The bulthaup b2 kitchen tool cabinet follows precisely this organizational principle of a craftsman’s tool cabinet. To determine what a kitchen’s essential ‘tools’ are, a design group emptied a conventional kitchen, then selected and reassembled the most necessary tools to determine the perfect storage space required of the b2 cabinet to store everything you use regularly: pots, pans, and kitchen utensils, as well as crockery. All of the cabinet’s contents are in clear view, at hand, and in exactly their intended place. “

“The kitchen tool cabinet is also available with a single design. The narrow kitchen tool cabinet – just like the double version – can be optionally equipped with an additional aluminum frame. This can be loaded with spice jars, food containers, and a shelf for storing vinegar and oil.”

The smart compaction of the storage space makes pull-outs and drawers superfluous. Slatted shelves made from solid maple wood and insertable aluminum shelves give the cabinet structure and order. The result is visual finesse, both inside and out.”

“Just as tools, equipment, and materials can be stored in the craftsman’s cabinet,  the b2 cabinet accommodates all things culinary. The doors offer the perfect depth for storing glasses and other gastronomic utensils. “
