Kitchen of the Week: A Japanese-Inspired Kitchen from Otomoto, a New UK Venture

November 7, 2019

New from UK-based artist Ryan Gander and creative director Tony Chambers (the former editor of Wallpaper), the Otomoto kitchen sink system is “inspired by compact, space-saving kitchen units often seen in Japan,” as the founders say. ‘The system speaks to a love of thoughtful simplicity in an often oversized and overcluttered material world. It’s everything and the kitchen sink.” Contact Otomoto for more information.
