A new view on cooking

Kitchen Window incorporates a sink and a stove

As we increasingly face a lack of space and our living quarters continue to get smaller, one of the main challenges we have is fitting everything we own and need into a smaller footprint.

This slightly wacky design was thought up by German designer Cornelius Comanns who entered it into the Electrolux Design Lab 2009 competition, which focussed on designs for the next 90 years.

The space saving kitchen module resembles a regular window with transparent glass, but can be folded down to reveal a sink and a stove.  How, one might ask, is this possible? Basically through the use of a special material named ‘power glass’ that can be heated to act like a regular hob. I’m still reserving judgement on this one.
