Has all of the same setpoint had been given, namely, “to invent the perfect kitchen”, a kitchen that would meet the new needs of the users while putting the act of cooking in the heart of the piece. While reserving, of course, a place of choice in devices of the brand.

 

Dubbed “Serious About Food”, the project has allowed for the emergence of 9 prospective vision of the kitchen. Among them, the amazing vegetable capsule designed by Matali Crasset (see our slide show in the following pages). The principle is simple : the kitchen is headed by a greenhouse that provides cooks with the vegetables and fruits they need to prepare their dishes, from the earth to the frying pan without any intermediary !
