A kitchen for life

News - 20 December 2018 - Communication BK

Together with producers and clients, researchers from BK Bouwkunde and the Amsterdam Institute for Advanced Metropolitan Solutions (AMS Institute) developed a prototype circular kitchen. This kitchen can be renewed almost indefinitely and adjusted to individual preferences, meaning it is a kitchen for life. A circular kitchen means less waste and content dwellers. With this prototype, the fully circular kitchen is within reach. 

The kitchen consists of easily adjustable modules of high-quality, environmentally friendly material. The modules can be easily adapted to individual taste. The property owner is completely unburdened via a service and take-back guarantee. The associated business model ensures that no complicated system changes are required. As a result, the circular kitchen can be used at competitive costs.

Researchers, manufacturers and market parties joined forces to develop the prototype. Over the last two years, BK Bouwkunde TU Delft and the AMS Institute have been working with Bribus, house rental companies, ATAG and the Dirkzwager Group to develop a kitchen that is as circular as possible. The prototype of the circular kitchen is being developed into a marketable product with European subsidy from EIT Climate-KIC.

The prototype of the circular kitchen is exhibited in the Zuidserre of BK Bouwkunde until the end of January 2019. More information on the official presentation on 17 January 2019 can be found here.
