NIM: Solar Powered Kitchen

The Lapin Kulta Solar Kitchen Restaurant fits with Useful Spaces in so many ways.  First, it's a kitchen.  True a professional kitchen, but the concepts are the same.  Second, it's about food and how we think about the relationship between food, the kitchen and our environment.  And third it features the work of Catalan designer Mart穩 Guix矇 (I just returned from Barcelona) and Finnish food visionary Antto Melasniemi (Scandinavian like me!).

The Solar Kitchen Restaurant employs a solar kitchen; food is cooked using only solar energy, collected using large reflectors.  According to chef Melasniemi, the use of solar energy truly affects the taste and texture of the food.  The kitchen opened during Milan Design Week 2011 in April, and followed the sun throughout Europe.
