What’s the next big thing in kitchens? Well, you may not be able to see it outright… but hidden behind a sleek facade, the most modern kitchens these days are incorporating a whole slew of surprises from automated storage solutions and hidden appliances to customizable cabinetry, re-configurable layouts, televisions and web connectivity to cook up culinary delights like you’ve never imagined! Here are four “smart” kitchens for the chef with high-end, high-tech tastes.
Alno Connected Kitchen (TV backsplash!)
Who likes to surf while they cook? For the cutting-edge chef, the Alno Connected Kitchen has all you need to stay connected. The high-tech design comes fully wired for automation and internet usage, massive 13-ft. touch-screen TV backsplash, allowing surveillance, Skyping and socializing what’s for dinner. Automated movable base cabinets and the adjustable-height base, sink and cooktop are remote controlled via remote your iPad.
The Cut Kitchen
The Cut isn’t just a cool name for this contemporary kitchen – it also describes the design. This modern kitchen is literally sliced and diced, boasting moving parts in the most unexpected planes, from the built-in tuck-away tabletop and the drop-down cabinets above the islands to the sink and prep area that hide behind rich cappuccino-colored cabinet-style doors when not in use.
Unlike the Greek legend, the Pandora Kitchen by Bazzeo is definitely one you’ll want to open! Behind its alluring wood facade are all good things – a bright red interior boasting a dining table and seating for four, a shelving system, cooktop, sink and pop-up faucet, a hidden TV compartment, and customizable cabinet combinations. To top it all off, Pandora’s mechanisms can all be remote-controlled using your smartphone. How smart is that?!
Miyo Studio: Wall Kitchen
When closed, the artfully concealed Wall Kitchen appears to be just that – a wall. But with the simple flick of a switch, the kitchen is revealed, complete with luxurious Gaggenau appliances, a Corian countertop, a four-meter induction cooktop – and yes, even a kitchen sink! The kitchen comes in more than 100 different finishes, like Indian Apple Tree veneer (as pictured).
