Kitchen Ecology: Recipes for Good Design
from the humble fireplace to electrical oven cooktops, kitchens have
evolved over time to become much more than simply an area for cooking.
nowadays it is a place for eating and socializing - an integral part of
our daily lifestyle. as the new hub of the modern home, we expect more from our kitchen - convenience, comfort, cleanliness, the latest technology - while simultaneously demanding less - less energy consumption, water usage, and waste.
it’s a delicate balance, and one that is in a constant state of development. in this spirit of evolving the archetype, designboom in collaboration with dwell on design will host a 'kitchen ecology: recipes for good design' exhibition. it's now time for a kitchen strategy session, making it the ideal place to reduce our environmental impact. just like with any recipe, we need to modify our habits and experiment with new (and old) ingredients and methods to be successful.
'kitchen ecology: recipes for good design',
this curated group show will express subjects and details of our kitchen environment by analyzing the ongoing conflict of ecology and consumerism. it will feature works from the freshest young and upcoming international designers, exploring ways to tweak the basic ingredients to produce the most eco-friendly, energy efficient models possible.
