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.

The Otomoto system is a full-length sink made from Cosentino’s Silestone material, atop a utilitarian timber frame; Gander and Chambers worked with architects Matheson Whiteley on the prototype.

The Otomoto system includes six chopping boards made from Paulownia wood, which can be positioned to create a worktop.

 The sink system is designed to accommodate modular metal Gastronorm containers, which are often used in commercial kitchens.
