Ikea Ingenuity: A Two-in-One Kitchen and Mini Herb Garden

Issue 71 · The Modern Kitchen · May 7, 2013

Spotted, via Italian designers Teste di Legno, an ingenious way to combine off-the-shelf Ikea components to make a custom compact kitchen, complete with a built-in herb garden:

Want to try to make one yourself? Here are some of the crucial components:

Above: Made of birch, a Norden Extendable Table comes in two sizes; an 87-inch-long table that extends to 1-5 inches is $399.

 

Above: A chrome-plated Glittran Faucet is $149.
