Tiny Transformer Kitchen Occupies Less Than 10 Square Feet When Closed

The challenge in the "1, 2, 3... easy kitchen!" competition shown in Designboom was to design a kitchen that occupied less than 1 square meter (about 10 square feet). Kristin Laass and Norman Ebelt of burg giebichenstein: hochschule fur kunst und design halle have done it with real style. Opened, it has everything: a fridge, sink, induction range and oven.

The range and oven pull out, exposing the storage; the eating/ prep counter is pulled out and put back wherever the cook wants it to be.

All closed up, a lovely looking little box. The fridge and a drawer are still accessible, although if you want a drink of water you have to work for it, sliding the eating surface away.

Even people who don't cook need a sink, but it is buried under the counter. Other than that, it does everything well. More images in Designboom
