Kitchen Design

Great design anticipates the natural flow of things. In their kitchen station design (perfect for lofts with no built-ins), Studio Gorm has both psychological and functional flow down to an art.

The psychological aspects of flow come from things like the the dish rack, where the wet dishes drip water onto the plants. This creates stunning parallel to the water cycle outdoors (white dishes even look a bit like clouds).

Unlike many symbolic, artistic products, functional flow was put to the fore front. Perhaps one of the better examples is the cutting board, which can slide out, easily allowing left overs to be brushed into the composting bin.

An exemplar for great design, this kitchen combines the streams of functionality, aesthetics, and symbolic storytelling into single flowing river.
