The kitchen shown above by MVK Italia illustrates how the modern kitchen can be defined by the units that are not actually there. This image is strong and shows that a kitchen can actually be used to define the space surrounding it. The Kitchen is becoming an artistic formation of architecturally adaptable islands that anchor function and sociability in an open plan setting.
It can be said that the kitchen is developing into the artistic definition of the architecture that surrounds it. Multiple islands connected by a bridging element in a contrasting material or texture is something to watch out for in 2011.
Imagine that you have never seen or used a kitchen before, imagine that the kitchen design rule book has been thrown out the window and you now have an opportunity to design a kitchen that functions well and looks beautiful. Would you create something like this?
