Ask yourself what is the dominant influence here...kitchen or architecture?!? Is the kitchen actually becoming the architecture or is the architecture absorbing the kitchen, making it unobtrusive and neutralised?
Kitchen design is changing in a way that is allowing a natural design discipline cross over and opening new doors of possibility. Kitchen pods and architectural integration is the next step along the evolutionary path for the fitted/unfitted kitchen; adding art and fashion to the mix along with an empathetic understanding of the human soul and you’ve pretty much cracked it! Kitchen design 2011 style!
