During my spare time, which these days has been few and far between, I enjoy reading Architectural Digest or trolling interior design sites online. As I’ve gotten older my interior design preferences have grown more towards a minimalist and modern vibe, which can sometimes be difficult to execute in a kitchen due to appliances. This week I stumbled on a kitchen designed by i29 that brilliantly conceals appliances and necessities resulting in a system that helps blend the living space with the kitchen.
Striping down and removing any superfluous elements, the design team expertly incorporated the cooling, water and electrical connections within the ultra thin island, which is only a couple centimetres thick.
Using decorative wainscotting elements of the Parisian apartment’s original walls as inspiration, the design team created sliding panels that hide all components of the kitchen and also acts as storage. When the panels are shut, the space appears clean and organized.
