GRASS: The kitchen is the new living room

Milan retrospect: The kitchen is vanishing

EuroCucina, which was once more held in 2018 at the Salone del Mobile in Milan, is a key indicator for developments in the kitchen sector. Every two years the North Italian metropolis showcases the latest trends – and every time the previous visitor record is broken. This year more than 430,000 visitors flocked to Milan to see how kitchens are changing. This year it was clearer than ever before – the kitchen is still the heart of the home.

For this very reason it is becoming less visible than it has ever been. Living room elements are used instead of classic kitchen equipment. Anything vaguely reminiscent of work disappears at the touch of a … [READ MORE]
