Private Residence Lanaken

Lanaken, Belgium
80m2

A sculptural kitchen installation designed for a devoted art collector and gardener.

An explosive cluster of tapering bronze and mirror-polished stainless steel boxes contain all the utilities of a fully functioning kitchen, whilst also bringing views of the surrounding Japanese garden in. Originating from a vanishing point in the living space (art collection), the boxes fly dynamically through the space, with each one being assigned a specific role, ranging from a central box for cooking, a window box for washing, to an entrance door.
