Conscious Kitchen

Influenced by the megatrends of sustainability and health, the kitchen is gaining a responsible awareness: more than ever, it is becoming an everyday companion that supports people in living healthier and more conscious lives. This is also reflected in the design, materials and furnishings of the “Conscious Kitchen,” as trend researcher Oona Horx-Strathern calls it in her latest Home Report. The Corona panedemic has certainly contributed to this, as both the need for security and the need for space and flexibility as a result of increased “Hoffices” (home offices), i.e. working from home, have become stronger. And when we work more at home again, we cook more often, and bspw. the food pantry for extended storage options is regaining importance.

The pursuit of mindfulness and conscious consumption is also reflected in sustainable storage options, work surfaces and tools. The kitchen manufacturer Poggenpohl has therefore, for example. deiwcked a kitchen with drawers for storing food that should not be stored in the refrigerator. And Agrilution is playing on the plant-based food trend and healthier diets in general, launching the Plantcube, a vertical mini-farm for the home.
