Designer Ana Arana has been researching how people consume food, and looking at "social and living arrangements focused on single occupancy living and how individuals perform their daily rituals of preparation and consumption of it." She notes:

Rituals involving food have take place since the beginning of human life and have develop until now. We no longer need a specific room to perform them, they happen anywhere imaginable and more and more often alone, like eating a sandwich on the street while running to work. So how to adapt that to a home? As a response to this growing trend of compact changeable lifestyles Gali is a revision of the kitchen.

It is an essential part in the house but sometimes it occupies a space that not everyone would use in the same way. Gali is the intention of letting each individual distribute their space as wanted, having everything necessary to cook when needed but allowing the living space to embrace new possibilities.

It's actually a clever update of our beloved mini kitchen by Joe Columbo, with a double induction range, mini fridge and sink, all in a little mobile package. One could think of it like we used to with portable dishwashers; you roll it out, hook up the drain and the water supply and use it instead of having it built into a fixed space. Or even if it was permanently hooked up, you still could unfold what you need when you need it.

All folded up and ready for bed. Found on Doornob
