In some of the world’s most famously tiny micro apartments, like a $300K closet in London and a 12-by-7-foot hole in the wall in New York City, creative division of space is just a given. Shortages of affordable accommodations in desirable cities often mean house hunters and renters have to work with less square footage than they’re used to, especially when the ‘apartments’ available are literally former walk-in closets, laundry rooms and storage areas.
“If we imagine everything is transparent clear and clean, doesn’t it mean that the only thing that is colorful and visible is our food?” says MVRDV co-founder Winy Maas. “I see this as part of a wider dream, this kitchen. It is part of an environment, if not a city, that is transparent and therefore accessible. Imagine if not only our kitchens were transparent, but the walls through to the neighbor and the next neighbor even. This would create infinite perspectives in our cities.” infinity kitchen
Combining the appearance of basalt with highlights of gold and brass (typically ‘Dickensian’ metals), The Fire Kitchen suggests warmth and flame. It resonates beautifully with Dixon’s ‘Melt’ series of pendant light fittings, fashioned in copper.
The design firm envisions this theme spreading beyond the walls of the kitchen to entire houses and buildings, imagining the next step of our living conditions. MVRDV hopes to take the accepted norms of today and push past them toward newer, better solutions. The desire for transparency has already resulted in a project called ‘Crystal Houses’ in Amsterdam, a traditional facade made from glass, as well as an office with all glass interiors, furniture and equipment in Hong Kong.
The shelves also come fitted with indents to hold wine bottles in place, so there’ll be no slipping and sliding! Wooden storage boxes that are made from the same material as the cutting boards can be pulled out from the bar block if you need to dig into them to get something or removed altogether. To top it all off, the bottom shelf of the bar block is great for storing baking trays, as it has a slightly higher opening than those above it, making the entire unit perfect for insertion beside the oven.
Of course, the ideal solution would be to integrate the bar block into a coherently designed kitchen from the outset, but this is not always possible. The Vertical Bar Block brings functionality back to those bothersome corners and small spaces that sometimes evade kitchen designers, and it’s an attractive-yet useful-product that ties the kitchen together to boot.
But despite the fact that the space wasn’t exactly move-in ready, they saw potential for an affordable apartment close to all the shops, restaurants, job opportunities and other perks of inner Stockholm. They hired Karin Matz Arkitekt to envision a new interior setup that would keep the space one big open room while fitting in a full kitchen, living room, dining area and bedroom with plenty of space for all their clothes.
According to Eli Feiglin, The Vice President of Marketing at Caesarstone: “Each year we explore a new design concept that displays different elements of Caesarstone; be it new colours and textures, or inherent surface characteristics such as strength and durability. This year (2016) we are pushing the limits of experimentation with the material, collaborating with design innovator Tom Dixon. His work is extremely inventive, fresh and thought-provoking; and we feel it brings a fascinating new angle to the creativity typical of Caesarstone’s kitchens.”
