Smart kitchen: Six clever kitchen furnishings

Bringing together technology and design, this compilation of savvy appliances and smart furnishings makes the kitchen cool and computerized. Vacuuming Drawer 400 Series Gaggenau
Look, Ma, no hands! This hands-free vacuuming drawer seals fish, meat, vegetables, and fruit. The multi-purpose drawer can be used for sous vide cooking, marinating, and extended storage. It can be installed seamlessly underneath the 400 Series ovens.
ST-ONE Strasser
This striking monolithic kitchen island showcases the very best properties of granite and marble. Available in five sizes and five natural stone types, each front panel is cut from a single block, highlighted by a glint of LED lighting around the base.
Trail Poliform
The Trail kitchen, designed by Carlo Colombo, features an integrated, ergonomic, concave handle that can be placed at the center or the far end of the door, and an innovative wooden “snack” bar table that rests along the edge of the island. The collection includes a robust drawer system and glass-boxed range hoods, and is available in four door-finishing options and two surface colors.
Functional Partition Wall Henrybuilt
Developed out of a desire to create distinct spaces in kitchens without dividing them too harshly, the partition wall provides both privacy and transparency. It is made by hand from solid wood, PaperStone, and opaque white glass. The wall frees up drawer space without cluttering the counter, subtly concealing unused cookery.
VVD Dada
For this kitchen, architect and designer Vincent Van Duysen played with the concept of solids and voids using islands, shelving units, and cabinetry enveloped in wood, steel, and laminate. The kitchen features roomy pullout trays, open-ended drawers, and under-top trolleys. To maximize storage, the thin-profile doors open to 180 degrees.

On the Ground in Las Vegas: The hottest trends from the 2016 Kitchen & Bath Industry Show

There was a lot of ground to cover at this years kitchen and bath show in Las Vegas. AN noticed a lot of consistent trends in terms of design themes and the newest must-have kitchen gadgets. Texturized There were a lot of three dimensional tiles and printed surfaces happening at many of the booths that really caught the editor's eye. For one, Walker Zanger had multiple wall tiles that resemble folded paper. Ann Sacks showed tiles that looked more like foam panels than stone. Additionally, Ann Sacks debuted a collaboration with designer Kelly Wearstler that showed grooved tiles that create a gorgeous rippling effect. Updated Appliances From Futuristic toilets to state-of-the-art steam ovens, this year there were a lot of innovations to everyday appliances. Gaggenau showed a beautiful combination steam and convection oven—equipped with the world's first fully automatic cleaning system, as well as built-in options that allow for a whole new method of in-home cooking. Thermador also debuted a 60 inch Pro Grand Steam Range that includes a steam and convection oven alongside a 36” convection oven. It's hard to believe that quite possibly the most exciting thing at KBIS was a hi-tech toilet, but with features like tornado dual-flush technology that only uses a gallon (or less) of water per flush, an automatic mist of electrolyzed water, and special glaze that utilizes nano technology, you hardly ever have to clean it. Plus TOTO's Neorest 550H has a motion sensor which means you never really have to touch it since it opens, closes, and flushes automatically. Sleek Installs Beautiful design that doesn't sacrifice function was a huge concern of designers at the show. Ronbow debuted their new signature series, consisting of eleven collections designed by nine top European designers. Every little detail was considered, including the addition of outlets and usb ports inside of drawers and cabinets as well as porcelain and marble drain stops that give a clean and minimal look to sinks. Fineline Move cutlery drawer Häfele also had some sleek new designs that will make you rethink drawer and pantry organization. The inclusion of Loox LED lights in tight spaces allows for clear countertops and more room for beautiful appliances. They also offer non-slip surfaces that are standard in all of their products and easily movable organizational containers.
