Ecooking is a vertical kitchen designed to make the most
of the electrical appliance area where it is also intended
for eating. Starting with the assumption that space is an
expensive and precious commodity even in terms of
Eco-sustainability its containment leads to indispensable
In the same way a size reduction of the modules results
in a decrease of component and material wastage, and
therefore an energy consumption saving in their manufacture.
Saving space and material realises an improved exploitation
of resources and with less waste approaches the conditions
of eco-sustainability that designers strive for.
The focus is on the product’s sensory appearance in
lacquered wood finish, pleasant to touch and giving a
technological aspect. Even for the different functions of
the visible appliances, such as the microwave and the handy
retractable tap that disappears into the sink allowing the
rotation and closure of the module in question.
Everything in one element that is extremely compact that
does not force you to renounce anything: a large
refrigerator, an integrated cooking system (induction hob
and microwave), systems for rinsing and washing (sink and
dishwasher with adequate capacity) without giving up the
possibility of a good cup of coffee after the meal. A "totem
pole" of seventy by seventy centimetres, with a height that
varies from a minimum of two meters up to the ceiling of the
room. Ideal for positioning as an island but that does not
discount the possibility to be against the wall of the room.
The rotating hood contains a light that follows you while
operating around the column and softens in different shades
at lunchtime and when using the extractable tables. When
instead you are preparing the food, the light is calibrated
to provide optimum lighting on the work surfaces. In the
hood the air treatment system, based on nanomaterials of
titanium dioxide, for the purifies the ambient air and is
capable of purifying a medium sized room in a few hours.
The various appliances that are close to each other can
easily interact and exchange heat, moisture and cooling with
one another and with the environment to save energy. A
characteristic element of the module, which integrates the
production of electrical energy, is the solar panels that
are positioned in the various upper modules (for which
reason a position in front of a window is advised), capable
of powering parts of the appliances independently.
A small vertical wall used as a vegetable garden, allows
the cultivation of aromatic plants for day to day usage,
whose growth is enhanced by controlled lighting and
temperature. This allows you to always have fresh spices and
essences, without the need to go into the garden of the
house or the grocery store.
The moving parts rotate around a central pivot which also
forms the exhaust pipe of the dishwasher and sink. This
rotation allows the development of a complete kitchen: the
sink is flanked by the hob and supported by the work
surface. Additionally, in advanced versions, you can have a
double folding surface that allows you to have a real table
for lunch (or dinner) with company.
