Modern, minimalist, mobile and more. Part space-saving folding table, part flexible surface and part portable kitchen island, this slightly weird invention may be the ultimate all-in-one cooking, preparing and working unit for the contemporary home chef working with limited layout possibilities.
Extending like an ultra-modern, giant-sized accordion, this compact kitchen unit sits on wheels for maximum portability and easy storage when not in use … and then folds open to reveal twice as much surface area, extra slots, shelves and more as needed.
Black, white and silver when it is fully closed, a set of optional colors emerge as the design unfolds – also indicating which storage spaces are temporary (only to be used in the ‘open’ condition) versus the drawers and other spaces that can be slid out of the sides in both convertible modes.
Does it look a bit odd? Yeah. It won’t exactly fit into traditional decor schemes. But for the contemporary cook, this design idea by Olga Kalugina blends the best of modern minimalism and ultra-modern functionality, simplicity of style with the flexible benefits of an extendable counters and extra storage to suit any occasion.

You will have the access to triangled boxes. You can replace them to opposite site of the table. Right and left table sides are food drawers. Drawer covers can be turned up-down and used as preparation boards.Cutting food will be removed into lower box accurately. Suggested construction will save working space and time. Transparent plastic was used for some parts of the table. The user can watch the content under the cover of the drawers.The quantity of functional modules can be different from two to four items. Itdepends on the preferences of the consumer.”
