As interior footprints shrink, compact organization grows increasingly important—particularly in the kitchen. Below is a compilation of some of the smartest solutions to keep the heart of the home clutter-free.
B2-Kitchen-Kitchen Tool Cabinet
German manufacturer Bulthaup’s B2 kitchen workshop (above) is the perfect disguise for the home cook. The kitchen implement cabinet is outfitted with multiple compartments to store accouterments from pots and pans to pantry items. Adjustable shelves, formatted containers, and storage systems all fit uniformly behind the folding doors. It works in a loft, studio, or office environment.
Artex by Varenna.
Minimal design and maximum storage come together on Artex, a contemporary kitchen concept designed by Paolo Piva for Varenna. The system takes hidden storage to a new level and includes pullout bins, pantry shelves, and even a refrigerator/freezer combo. The system is offered in 133 finishes, materials, and colors, including wood, steel, glass, stone, and glossy lacquer.Xila 09 by Boffi.
Boffi has re-introduced one of their iconic kitchens, the Xila 09 originally designed by Luigi Massoni in 1972. It was the first kitchen system void of any detailing such as handles or drawers. Its sleek architectural appeal enforces the modular design while functioning as cooktop, counter, work surface, or bar. Xila is available in a selection of Boffi finishes including marble, granite, wood, or stainless steel.Gamma by Arclinea.
Gamma, Arclinea’s latest kitchen system can be formatted to fit any size space. And if you’ve got a wine collector client, who likes to show off, the linear design features a white laminate satin door system called Vina&Dispensa that can accommodate a pantry and refrigerating wine storage system. The pantry includes multiple pullout drawers and a sliding door with floor-to-ceiling glides and handle.
The latest in induction cooking comes from Gaggenau. The discreet stainless steel CX 491 is actually one giant cooktop. Operated by Thin Film Transistor touch display, the surface can accommodate up to 4 pots and pans simultaneously while all sizes and form of cookware can be used.
