Bringing it all back home

Shape shifting kitchens are brilliant because they cause us to question what is important about kitchen design.  There is a permanent but healthy conflict between making the kitchen more versatile and delivering satisfaction on the “human factor”.  Smaller, transforming and more technologically advanced kitchens can be seen as the way forward but the “human factor” is the most important element in any design.
The Mogul feels that many concept kitchens can deliver on function and ergonomics but they are perceived as cold and space age...a kitchen of the future which is detached from the relationships of today!
The “human factor” can be defined by conversations, people, memories, smells and an overall sense of place.  I’m sure you can all remember the kitchen of your childhood!  Would those memories be any different if your kitchen looked like this?
