this is the future of coating: ceramics! it resists high temperatures, scratches and doesn’t peel off. a luminous signal on the handle indicates when it’s reached 140 °C, so you can lower the flame of your stove and use less energy.

  • Ecology is such a buzz word these days, these guys have managed to pull it off with their work. I was at the show and thought it had a lot of insightful information on our whole existence in the kitchen and what designers are coming up with.

  • This exhibition seemed very interesting. I like that people are thinking about our future. The herb planter is such a good idea.

    Alan Dale
  • Those Stem Herb Planters are funky…where can I get one?

  • That removable washbasin is a great idea. If you have biodegradable soap, then it would be great for watering your plants.

    I also really like the ceramic cookware. More and more, ceramic is playing a bigger part in the kitchen, especially since people found out ceramic works very well as knives. Ming Tsai (of PBS’ Simply Ming) uses ceramic knives quite often. It makes sense that they would be adapted for cooking purposes. It’s also great that they have an inset thermometer.

    Good stuff.
