The kitchen counter is one of the most monolithic objects in our homes and the one that produces the most furniture waste. In my master thesis I set out to prolong its lifetime. Taking a modular approach allowed me to make the counter adapt to different floor plans when confronted with new scenarios. The frame and counter are adjustable in height and length and are paired with an omnidirectional sink that can adapt to any water outlet. All the pieces are held together with a steel rope running around the sink and counter elements making it very easy to assemble and modify.

the sink can be used in any orientation to fit water outlets in every room
to facilitate different kitchen layouts, the frame can be adjusted in length by adding or subtracting elements. Steel ropes hold everything in place.
choose the feet — change the height
To fit the kitchen perfectly to any wall and into any apartment, a hinge element closes the gap between the counter and the wall.
Individual pieces of the hinge can be added or subtracted to change its size.

Throughout its lifetime the kitchen can adapt to many different places and living scenarios.
Add or subtract elements, rearrange everything to your liking and reuse it anytime you move.
