Living our future now!





The I-Food Kitchen concept by Chiara Daniele is a classic example of how designers are exploring kitchen design, taking influence from other design disciplines like set design and fusing ideas into functional concepts for the future.   
This concept design boasts an array of gadgetry that makes the kitchen into an automated terminal of convenience!  There are integrated electronic controls that allow the hob to weigh added ingredients, the sink can shape shift into a washing machine, everything is touch control and all of the appliances are on the same electrical grid so that they can efficiently share power and reduce energy wastage! 
But although this concept looks and sounds futuristic The Mogul would argue that many of the ideas and concepts here are already in the mainstream market!  Touch control, automated, mobile, shape shifting, kitchen pods are being designed and manufactured every day....maybe concept kitchen design is actually becoming a reality, driven by the human desire to make things better and more efficient!

We are living our future now!
