An entire kitchen that is eco-friendly...

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 


This is a kitchen design concept that Whirlpool just released which addresses the systematic waste in most kitchens.

 

I love the systematic waste example provided in the article -- every time I finish cooking in my oven I DO always wonder what I could do with the leftover heat!  Usually I just leave the oven door open to warm up my apartment or something.  Anyway, they say that the design is inspired by natural ecosystem cycles and will be 70% more efficient and 24% cheaper!!!  Coooooooool....

Let's hope with the Whirlpool name it gets beyond the concept phase!

 

But I do have to wonder...did they check out John Arndt's Flow and put their own spin on it?

 

Here's the description of Flow from John's website:


FLOW, 2006-2007

 

flow and the kitchen of terrestrial mechanics was developed for my masters thesis project at the Design Academy Eindhoven in the NL.  Modern kitchens tend to be wasteful of valuable resources.  I worked on developing a kitchen which uses nature as a model.  I developed several relatively simple products which act as vehicles for the natural processes to do the work.  These symbiotic products work together creating an effective living system which helps to perform basic tasks in the kitchen.

 

And here are two images:

Wow, that kitchen looks amazing!  I wish my fridge had drawers.  I always feel so terrible when I open the door just to grab an apple, or whatever I'm in there for.  All the cold air leaks out!  And I'd love to have more plants in my kitchen.  We live in an apartment, so we don't have a nice garden.  Though, I'd probably do something wrong and the plants would die.  I have black thumbs!

 

But thanks for sharing the link!  Gosh, it's so interesting!  I want one! lol!
