Future Kitchen

The Kitchen is often the hub of a house, how much could its design change in the years to come?

Shown at the recent NY design Week event Caesarstone and Pratt Institute have teamed up to give us a look at the self-sustaining kitchen of the future


The Future Kitchen challenges technology and nature to work in unison. The concept is an experiment by Industrial Design students to create a self-sustaining space that operates through aquaponics, hydroponics, 3D printing, water filtration, indoor farming, composting and food storage.

Candlelight by LED?

Love the atmosphere created by a real flame indoors without the associated dangers?  Well take a look at Mori London’s pair of handmade glass lamps.

Created by Mori London designer and founder Moritz Waldemeyer, the two pieces are titled ‘Midnight Oil’ and ‘Eternal Flame’


Made with a small matrix of low temperature LEDs, which have been programmed to flicker and dance like a real candle. The technology is relatively simple and has the wonderful effect of fooling the eye into believing there’s a real flame inside.
