This Aquarium Counter Brings the Ocean Into the Kitchen

Dutch interior designer Robert Kolenik is bringing the ocean into the kitchen with his incredible counter that uses a large aquarium for its base. Beneath the conventional white top (complete with stove and sink) are peaceful blue waters filled with a school of fish and mountainous rock features.

Kitchens Photographed Inside Out

Most kitchen photographs focus on the style or design they show off to the world… these images turn that around, or inside out, to show us a hidden side of peoples cupboards. Photographer Erik Klein Wolterink says he has “focused on the innards of the kitchens, as if the exterior didn’t matter.” He opened all the cupboards, drawers, fridges and ovens, taking images of each piece and reconstructing each into a flatened collage of cutlery, vegetables, cans and cups. It’s a kitchen as we’ve never seen it before.

Hey Robot, Make Me A Sandwich!

Robots have come such a long way in recent years, it seems like it won’t be long before they’re helping out in every household. The idea of having a helper around is pretty intriguing, but we don’t want then to always do the same thing, like a dishwasher or a toaster; we want something smarter, far more helpful and talented. While robots have long been doing things that humans can do by following a set of strictly defined programs, it hasn’t been until recently that they began doing tasks using their own senses and choices.
