reinhard dienes: sunday kitchen grocery

‘sunday’ kitchen grocery, designed by reinhard deines

the ‘sunday‘ kitchen grocery, created by colombia-born, germany-based designer reinhard dienes, is a modular storage system adaptable to a range of common kitchen and garden needs. the piece was part of the design deutschland 2011 exhibition of german design, organized by the german design council for new york and milan design weeks.

measuring 180 x 55 x 35 centimeters (6 x 1.8 x 1.4 feet), the grocery is composed of wood and steel shelf frames. a fluorescent lamp in the upper canopy provides lighting, a built-in electrical socket serves as an extension for kitchen appliances, and the adjustable frames integrate with shelving panels and a range of bent steel organizers to provide additional functionality. currently available modules include plant pot holders, open and lidded baskets in a variety of sizes, and wire racks, all of which lift easily in and out of the grocery for rearrangement.

reinhard dienes is currently seeking producers for ‘sunday.’

  • this is lovely design. truly. clean, versatile; I don’t say this often, but I would really like to own one myself.

    @Eug, the light is just added functionality. it’s meant as pantry or kitchen shelving, not a sales stand
    at a store or grocery (I think that word is used differently in other parts of the world, thus the name).

    although I also wonder if you could use a UV light instead, for the plants? that would be great!

  • I really don’t understand the reasoning for the light. Is it supposed to make the objects on the stand look for ‘interesting’… is this really necessary and for what reason? Is it an organizer of sorts? It just seems a bit of a glorified sales stand. All in all, could of been executed better with a little more thought behind its primary purpose.
