Emotional Interactive Product design, an integrated Kitchen with Extension.
Through the design of extending space, the „Distant Hills“ changes the side-by-side operational pattern in a traditional kitchen and creates an interactive space for free face-to-face communication. Meanwhile, changeable shape design not only extends usable space but also grants a dynamic feature.
The shape of the design is inspired by the conceptual image of the rolling mountains in a distance. To develop an overall style of simplicity and freshness, curves with classical essence are combined with a vivid color of bright olive drab which is associated with spring days full of vigor. In order to create maximum practicality in the limited space, the “Distant Hills” integrates all comment functionalities of kitchen into a single independent island. Below the operational platform is a translucent plant area, which adds natural vigor to life.
