The kitchen has quickly become one of the most important areas in a house. I personally prefer minimalistic styled designs. The one we will discuss today is spot on in that category. It seems the perfect kitchen when space is limited or when you are renting a place and you don't want to invest too much money and still have something nice to look at.

Based around four modules

This adaptable modular kitchen system is designed by Kilian Schindler for German kitchen accessories brand Naber. This mobile "Concept Kitchen" is currently based around four modules: worktop and storage area, worktop and oven with autarkic cooking surface, dishwashing area plus cupboard element. The basic elements are made from steel and easy to disassemble. They've got pre-drilled grid patterns for the flexible arranging of construction and storage shelves. As easy as the storage of the disassembled modules is their assembling and disassembling.

How Naber describes it

"The designer Kilian Schindler from Karlsruhe applied "Concept Kitchen" as a solid framework for chaotic everyday life aesthetics. It offers a changeable skeleton to its user which he can organize according to his individual wishes and needs. The integrated objects enrich the minimal designed piece of kitchen furniture by a whole different dimension that goes far beyond the functionality as a working place. With the aesthetics of simplicity, diversity and liveliness "Concept Kitchen" can here and now adjust itself to the needs of its users’ life but likewise easily at any other location. If as an island solution combined with the classic version of a fitted kitchen the modules can be arranged according to your liking."

Rat für Formgebungs’

The concept of the new modular kitchen "Concept Kitchen" was nominated to represent first class German design performance. The Rat für Formgebungs’ traveling exhibition with the title "Design Deutschland – functional, distinct, unobtrusive" shows about 100 current design concepts and proves the innovative power of German companies and designers on three of the worldwide most important interior design exhibitions.

Not for sale (yet)

Like mentioned this is still a concept so there is no information available if this becomes a real product that will commercially produced. I'm sure there would be interest if it did.
