The Design and Technology Lab is a joint venture between the Industrial Design Programme at Zurich University of the Arts (ZHdK) and the Product Development Group of the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Zurich (ETHZ). The Lab is a cross-university education and research platform dedicated to interdisciplinary innovation projects.

In the future there will be more and more single-person households. Moreover, kitchens will less and less be separate spaces but will blend increasingly with the living area.

Alessio Maag (Bachelor, ZHdK) and Kevin Geiger (Bachelor, ETHZ) developed a vision of the kitchen for single-person households in cooperation with V-Zug. Their space-saving module comprises work surfaces that can be pulled out during cooking and closed completely afterwards. In addition, intelligent sensor technology saves energy during cooking and prevents dishes from overcooking. The module’s flexibility facilitates both quick meal preparation for individuals and convivial cooking with friends.
