Invisible Kitchen in Paris
Modern designers are true magicians and illusionists. They manage to create a functional interior, making it visually spacious, light and uncluttered. This can be said about the designers from Dutch design studio I29 Interior Architects. In all their works, they use all sorts of visual tricks, creating interior illusions.
How to Hide Kitchen: Example from Paris
Kitchen by I29 Interior Architects in Paris
And today we want to show a kitchen designed by Jasper Jansen and Jeroen Dellensen, who are the founders of the design studio I29 Interior Architects.
One of the most popular methods of visual space expansion is interior glass doors. This element is used for trends such as strict functionalism, rapid high-tech or elegant minimalism. It is especially good to use this option if you want to combine the kitchen with the dining room or living room.
Let’s look at the original kitchen, located in Paris, which blends with a common space, when interior glass doors are hidden.
The kitchen interior is executed in elegant minimalism style. There are no kitchen units except one spacious island and a pair of black chairs in the room and walls beautifully decorated with light. A spacious window fills the kitchen with sunlight and expands the space.
Designers used the bag of tricks and hid all the pieces of furniture for storage and appliances behind sliding panels.
Black island is also very functional. You will not see immediately a modern cooker with extractor hood. But it is quite convenient to cook and there is a sink with water.
But the whole effect of this kitchen is that the island has a working surface of a thickness not more than a few inches. There is an illusion of open space. And it’s true, nothing superfluous falls into the field of view. It is simply amazing magic that certainly will please fans of minimalism.
In fact, the kitchen is small, but due to these tricks the designers managed to enlarge it visually. At first it seemed that everything is simple and clear, but in fact this simplicity goes with deep meaning and a little tricky secret.
So the designers got the original illusion of space that relaxes and soothes. And if necessary the border can easily expand and let the kitchen merge with the common space.
