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.
Integrated household design company Henrybuilt is one such organization, casting its watchful eye over its clients’ living requirements to come up with tailor-made solutions for every room in their homes. From kitchens to living rooms and bedrooms, Henrybuilt prides itself on providing holistic answers to the daily questions of household living. Their new product, the Vertical Bar Block, is the latest string to their ever-expanding bow of domestic problem-solving.
When you’re downsizing into a space-challenged apartment, getting rid of a bunch of stuff is the first step, but actually, living there on a day-to-day basis ultimately requires all sorts of space-maximizing tricks and hacks. Sometimes that means resorting to methods like storing clothes in a rarely-used oven or building a sleeping loft so shallow you better hope you don’t sit bolt upright in the middle of the night, but some crafty designers and DIYers have managed to come up with integrated solutions that look great, especially considering the diminutive dimensions of each room.
Comprised of a system of open shelving that can be used to store anything from wine bottles to cups and decorative ornaments, the bar block also comes with three specially-designed cutting boards, which slot in and can be easily removed one at a time. The shelves themselves can be repositioned as required, allowing you to clear some space if you ever need to store bigger items.
You’ve also got eye-level views of the racks, and the ability to position the dishwasher directly next to the sink for even more convenience. As the designers note, the vertical design eliminates the need for a watertight seal around the door, which can be one of the weakest points of a front-loading dishwasher.
Says Arana, “Through research into trends and statistics concerning food consuming, social and living arrangements, I focused on single occupancy living. The research showed a rise in people living on their own. My aim is to deliver a contemporary take on kitchen appliances.” “As a response to this growing trend of compact, changeable lifestyles in small apartments of single living people I would like to make a revision of the kitchen.”
Clearly, the racks are pretty small, and the compact size coupled with a central axis makes it hard to wash more than a day’s worth of dishes at a time or add any pots or platters to the mix. But this concept was specifically envisioned for smaller urban kitchens in which space comes at a premium, and there’s no reason it couldn’t be made available in a range of sizes to accommodate larger households.
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.”
