if the kitchen is the heart and soul of the house, then creativity, movement, and interactions with products and people is what keeps it alive. how will behavioral trends and emerging technologies enhance the kitchen environment?
we are seeing 4 major trends in the kitchen environment CONNECTED (information age) modularity eco MINIMA L seen in both kitchen systems and kitchen appliances seen in both kitchen systems and kitchen appliances
MINIMA L visual simplicity + space efficient
a a MODUL ARITY customizable + upgradable
eco alternative energy + responsible materials + waste management
CONNECTED (information age) connect to a larger network + access information quickly
the kitchen is a multi- purpose hands on space overtime the traditional kitchen has evolved to become a space that is used for more than just cooking : it is a space for both personal and group activities
group activities food activities personal activities
group activities food activities personal activities dining parties get Togethers eat work play create cook clean store
when we surveyed kitchen users, we discovered they all cook, eat, clean and store differently. everyone is unique !
2 scenarios emerged from our research suburban family apartment dwellers
urban – less space – existing equipment – rent apartment - roommates apartment dwellers
apartment dwellers i always forget what i have in my fridge I spend to much time loading and unloading dishes i have limited kitchen space high storage is hard to reach cleaning up takes to long
suburban – larger equipped kitchen– kids – own house – busy lifestyle suburban family
suburban family my cabinets are a mess, and they never seem to stay organized i have no time to cook, clean and pack lunches i cant keep track of recipes i use to much water I dont remember what I have in my house
follow a traditional linear workflow in the kitchen engage in information/as set sharing urbanites and suburbanites still experience similar patterns
technology is moving kitchen users into a CONNECTED WORLD, based on SHARING objects and INFORMATION responsibility Programs like zipcar allow consumers share physical objects for economic and environmental reasons Programs like harvest mark allows consumers to trace where their food is coming from Programs like urban garden share allow consumers to reconnect with nature and share locally grown produce sociology sharing recipes through social networks like twitter, myspace, and facebook allow consumers to virtually communicate and share information instantly Programs like neighborhood fruit and eat wild allows consumers to reconnect with their local neighborhood sharing

sharing (interconnectivity) Reduced workflow optimized space we brainstormed each aspect of the kitchen always considering trends and user needs we brainstormed each aspect of the kitchen always considering trends and user needs
Concept design scenario KELLYJEN
kelly decides to go to the grocery store to shop for food
in the store kelly takes out her smartphone to use her MySpice app Fridge view: allows you to look into your fridge My pantry: your personal food database Share: food community database Recipes: uses your /the communities database to create recipe suggestions MySpice is an application that allows users to log, check, and share her food with a network of people
while shopping, kelly checks her home refrigerators contents Fridge view utilizes a camera built into your fridge camera
she finishes shopping and the store sends her an electronic receipt
MySpice receives the receipt and tracks kellys groceries Step 1: kelly receives her receipt from trader jacks Step 2: kelly selects items she wants to share Step 3: kelly can review the contents of her groceries and keep track of expiration dates
back in her apartment, kelly puts groceries away in her cabinets Step stool Kitchen island with quick wash refrigerato r The step stool uses empty space under her cabinets,and can easily be activated for use
she also puts groceries away in her refrigerator Slide out planter tray Light and water are provided by the fridge The planter tray allows kelly to bring a small garden indoors. she can grow herbs and flowers using the power already built into her refrigerat or This works well for her small urban environmen t
She uses MySpice to find a recipe for dinner Step 1: kelly searches both recipes with her pantry (my recipes) and the networks pantry (shared recipes) Step 2: kelly selects a shared recipe Step 3: kellys sister jen has 2 ingredients in her pantry to complete this recipe
Using MySpice she contacts her sister jen
jen invites kelly to have dinner with her family
kelly and jen enter jens kitchen Inductive counter top Multi- functional kitchen island Underground pantry refrigerato r dishwasher microwave Sectioned cabinet
jen removes her ingredients from her modular refrigerator Add as many units as needed Set temperature The modular refrigerator is easily accessible with its lowering automated shelf. Jen can program the temperature of each unit and add units as needed.
jens husband dave cooks the meal using the kitchen island precise measurements mind if I help? Faucet slides on track to be easily accessed along the island
dave cuts and cooks directly on the inductive countertop Step 1: Dave preps meal by cutting vegetabl es. Step 2: Dave moves vegetables to the side to clear counter space Step 3: Dave places skillet on counter top Step 4: Dave selects temperature by touching countertop The action of placing the skillet on the countertop lights up the controls. The inductive countertop allows dave to cut and cook on the same compact surface area
inductive kitchen appliances live seamlessly with the coutertop Hand held blender charges when it sits on countertop Food processor blender bowl attachment
jen sets the table using the clean dishes from her cabinet/washer
dirty dishes are placed back into the washer/cabinet for cleaning When desired, Kelly can active thewash mode in her cabinets and it will wash the dishes Dish soap dispenser The washer/cabi net simplifies the dish washing experience. Jen can store and wash the dishes in one contained space, without the hassle of loading and unloading a dishwasher.
lunches from leftovers are placed in sectioned cabinet Program individual shelves to individual members of your family Next Day The sectioned cabinet allows jen to customize her storage so she can locate what she wants without searching for a long period of time
kelly drives back to her apartment later that evening
at her apartment, kelly cleans her tupperware in her quick wash Step 1: place dirty dish in quick wash Step 2: washe s and dries Step 3: remov e clean dish Insert dish into quick wash The quick wash allows kelly to wash one dish in a short period of time.
Kellys sink disposes of left over food in the compost bin Garbage disposal Compost bin, rotates and heats compost The compost bin leverages kellys existing garbage disposal to grind up organic material Kelly can dump all her organic material in her garbage disposal
sharing (interconnectivity) Reduced workflow optimized space we would continue to develop a kitchen system for both the apartment dweller and the suburban family
