This kitchen brings back into view everything that one normally hides away these days. It thus contrasts a lot with the usual modern-design kitchen which, in its radical abstraction, making it a pure from of its essential functions; preparing, cooking, washing, hanging, preserving, cleaning and time-management, it has even done away with cupboard handles.
Herb pots, racks for kitchen utensils, a cook-book support, a drainer, even a mortar – all are part and parcel of the tile work, bringing the kitchen back down to earth.

A minimum of materials and sizes; only white tiles in 12 basic shapes. Four structural, including 3 with different angles and one to hold water. The remaining eight are functiona; herb container, magnet, mortar, utensil holder, book stand, dish rack, alarm clock and towel holder. All in plain view.

The kitchen is also equipped with five steel burners , each easy to re-position depending on the use. The whole kitchen measures 158.5 × 78 × 65″ but is easily adapted to personal needs.
