Stockholm – A new kitchen concept illustrates how we will live in 2050.
Heart of the Home, developed by Electrolux, is an interchangeable cooking surface that adapts to people’s needs. It functions as an all-in-one kitchen table, cooking surface and bar.
Pots and pans will be long forgotten, instead people will simply place ingredients on the surface. Cookbooks will also be unnecessary: the appliance analyses the ingredients and presents a list of suitable recipes. The user then decides with his hand how large the cooking area should be; by pushing the surface down, the desired depth is created.
The concept taps into the themes of our Homestead 3.0 trend report, where we look at recent innovations for urban spaces.
