NIM: Compact Kitchen - Kitchoo Kitchoo Koo

Kitchoo Compact Kitchens & Baths is a French based design company that (as the name suggests) specializes in small kitchen and bath configurations.  When I first heard the name Kitchoo (which means "good omen" in Japanese) I was intrigued as I specialize in small space design and have written about compact kitchens before.

But when I was shown the picture of their K1 model, I was a bit confused. I could easily imagine a number of kitchen components hidden inside this unit.  But this more of a sideboard than a fucntioning kitchen.  Yet Kitchoo has been the recipient of two Red Dot Design Awards, and one of them was for the K1, so there had to be something more.

Well colour me impressed!  Open a few doors and you'll find a sink, a cooktop, a small refrigerator and even a small dishwasher.  That's a lot to fit into a box that's only 1300 mm x 1000 mm x 650mm. (51 1/8" long x 39" high x 25 5/8" deep).  That size doesn't meet your needs?  They will do custom design as well.

The K1 lists at € 5390 and currently retails in the France and the UK.
