Since many workspaces are going with open floor plans these days, Kukula designed OIKOS to function like a two-wheeled wagon that can be raised and pushed to wherever it’s needed. When not being used for cooking, it operates as a regular tabletop where people can brainstorm or work independently with the added convenience of electrical outlets for charging your gear. When it’s time to cook, uncover the induction stove and storage compartments that house ingredients during prep time. OIKOS is made from a black powder coated steel frame with an oak surface that all comes apart to flat-pack it for storage or transportation.
Flamboyance in prepping the food, presenting and entertaining guests from the kitchen space is an art in itself. Pelago Kitchen Island is for those who like to show-off their cooking skills but have limited space. The workstation features multiple counter surfaces that slide away to reveal the sink and has drawers for specific tasks. Granite countertops and aluminum sinks are the obvious choice of materials as they are easy to maintain. It even has a niche space for 2 people to sit while you do the cooking.
