The Swiss are known for their precision and simplicity in design (see: well-made watches; the Helvetica typeface (the name literally means “Swiss”)). So it’s no surprise that any Switzerland-designed kitchen system would be exceptionally clever, functional, and high-quality, all in a compact package.
Take, for example, Kitchoo, makers of “Swiss pocket kitchens” manufactured in the EU—the equivalent of a Swiss army knife for the cook space.
Take a look at the two models on offer:
“Our goal has always been to optimize the functionality of our compact kitchens while improving the comfort of use,” the company writes on their website. “Kitchoo was one of the first tiny kitchens equipped with a synthetic stone kitchen top; one of the first small kitchens to have a refrigerator, dishwasher, and microwave all in one; and finally the very first small kitchen equipped with a hood to completely conceal a small kitchen.”
For much more, head to Kitchoo.
