As increasing number of people move to the city, inner city living accommodation has got progressively smaller with even more studio apartments appearing on the market. In these confined living spaces, cooking and sleeping functions are often limited to the same room. This phenomenom decided Johanneke Procee to re-evaluate the role of furniture in these compact living spaces.
Johanneke was inspired by her travels in South America where she says they define the space of a kitchen differently. "The compact spaces inspired me to approach the different functions a single room house needs to have from an other perspective" Keukenkabinet is a project about opening a space at the moment one needs it. It's a link between two worlds. When the cabinet is closed, it's a piece of furniture that's a part of the living space. By opening the cabinet you literally create a new space, a compact kitchen.
