Invisible kitchen

As living spaces and kitchen islands merge together in most contemporary homes nowadays, i29 designed a kitchen that acts more as a piece of furniture instead of as a kitchen. Our aim was to de-velop a kitchen system that seems to disappear in space.

The design is reduced to it’s absolute minimum, having a top surface of only a couple of centimeters thickness with all water, cooking and electrical connections included. Large sliding wall panels con-ceal all kitchen appliances and storage space.

In the case of this apartment in Paris, where the kitchen concept is installed, an existing profiled wall is exactly copied on the front panels in order to integrate the solid volume with the monumen-tal space. The freestanding kitchen island is placed in front of the panelled sliding doors.
