The Portable Kitchen

Christine Chang Hanway April 11, 2012

This summer there’s no need to be chained to the kitchen sink: A portable kitchen allows you to take your sink with you.

As the weather warms up and we approach summer, make up for lost time and maximize your outdoor time with a portable kitchen. Here a few ideas we've collected—including a Bicycle Stove from Dutch designer Florike Martens.

Above: Industrial design student Sébastien Cluzel created the Paysage Culinaire (culinary landscape) to encourage collaborative cooking.

Above: Nina Tolstrup from Studiomama loves to cook outside. "With this Outdoor Kitchen, I can do my chopping, peeling as well as my cooking," she says. A bucket forms a sink connected to the garden hose, while waste water is collected in a watering can below.

Above: Every component of the Outdoor Kitchen can be sourced from a hardware store; Tolstrup offers instructions at StudioMama.

Above: Dutch designer Florike Martens' Bicycle Stove means you can go further afield for your al fresco cooking.

Above: The Bicycle Stove features two gas hobs, a work surface, and a barbecue facility.

Above: French designer Ciguë's created this mobile restaurant in Marseille.
