I went to a Kitchen Conference recently, organised by the trade magazine KBB Review and one of the most interesting talks was given by Gus Desbarats of The Alloy, an industrial design company. He was discussing modern product design. If new kitchens need to be bought on their own account, rather than just as an investment for your property (now that the housing market has slumped), then how should they be designed to work better and appeal to their owners more?
Perhaps innovative design for kitchens should come from
the designers and not just the manufacturers
