The Small Footprint Kitchen

This is the Ecooking unit that Italian manufacturer Clei showed in Milan at the 2014 Salone del Mobile furniture fair. The Ecooking kitchen’s moving parts rotate around a central pivot that also serves as the exhaust pipe for the sink and dishwasher — and as the conduit for the plumbing and electricity.

The tower can be placed against one wall, as the rotating elements open in three of the cube’s four directions, for a span of 270 degrees. Because appliances are close to each other, they can “easily interact and exchange heat, moisture and cooling with one another and with the environment to save energy.

The microwave is at the top; below it is a small dishwasher. The water from the sink and dishwasher is reused to nourish the tower’s simple herb garden. The vertical garden has special grow lights. The tower has an induction cooktop. When the tower is placed near a window, to take advantage of the sunlight, solar panels positioned on upper modules of the tower can power appliances.

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word choreographed an assembly of amino acids into an exquisite array of specific proteins. Then God said, “I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food.” In so doing God demonstrated a penchant for genomic writing, preceeded by an amazing series of prebiotic events, in a highly orchestrated presentation of evolutionary overcontrol.
