this makes me feel like I'm at the zoo. not sure that's a good thing.
Autopsy table, designed by Victoria Hagan.
Not my thang. It's cool but not pretty. I like me some pretty.
This room has no "soul".
I just love the idea of washing dishes in a cage under two giant bells. Kind of symbolic of a woman's status in the kitchen. Or something. The bells even look kinda like lady parts in a way. Hmmm...
Why is the sink in a cage? Is it in trouble?Otherwise, do love those stools.
PER.FECT. perfectly minimal, absolutely functional and cleverly minimal. Plus, such a beautiful image. Merci.
I feel as though someone is going to get handcuffed to this kitchen. . .risque' I know, but still - - -
LOVE. That ceiling is torturing me. I'm redoing ours in the kitchen:http://tearinguphouses.blogspot.com/2010/03/before-progress-pictures-historic-house.html Once I opened it up, I immediately wanted to leave it like that. It's not right for the space, but there's an extension to the kitchen of sorts with a vaulted ceiling and single lite french doors. I'm going to take down the beadboard that's there and strip the paint off of the brick wall. I plan on making it feel more like a semi-private prep area with large stainless steel countertops and butcher's block (versus granite and stones in the formal kitchen part)...Kelly
I don't get it. It looks more like a laboratory.
I quite like it. It's like Gosford Park in the new millenium. I love the stools. I like kitchens that look like work is being done in them and not so fond of pretty fantasies.
I don't see how anyone could actually cook in this kitchen.
"I like kitchens that look like work is being done in them"So where is the plumbing for this sink?
Yes, but with different lighting...
I like it, but not my kind of thing either. Would be great to happen upon this at a vacation home, but how would you keep it that clean and stark looking at your own house?
Not so much. It's entirely possible for a kitchen to function efficiently without looking like an exam room.And there's always room for pretty fantasy. Even in the kitchen. Perhaps especially in the kitchen...:)
It's great, The high-end designer kitchen has got to change and this is a pretty good direction.
Many years ago my father renovated an old veterinarian's office. I was with him the day they broke through the rotten basement door and found a blood-spattered 1920's autopsy table.It looked exactly like this.
A sprucer version of the chopping up room in "Hostel"; all it lacks is a giant with a chainmail apron, a cleaver, and a cart filled with cadavers.
On one hand I love it, the comment on it being 21st century Gosford Park is spot on; I see a new age troop of servants (probably robots) preparing a macrobiotic tea...To steal a line from the Emperor Joseph in "Amadeus", "Is it modern?"On the other hand, I get the vaguely uneasy feeling of its being a medieval mad scientist's lab which is about to loose something horrible on an innocent world...I guess, on balance, that is a tribute to the designer and his/her ability to make you think about what you are seeing.
Having pondered, I now think it is very Axel Vervoordt in feeling; warm wood and naturals like plaster juxtaposed to colder surfaces like marble and chromed steel, all within an old structure, stripped down to essentials and celebrating, understatedly, the integrity of the individual materials
LOVE the autopsy table/VH comment....been watching too much Law and Order! Umm...not getting the plumbing thing..is that a functional sink or just like a Big Tykes kitchen?? Form over function ALWAYS!
No. It's a wheel away and looks like it will squeak as it goes.
No place to be even a little disorganized.
All that upright support to hang 3 pots?
Creative, but I wouldn't do it in my home or a clients.
I'm a former design magazine editor, and if memory serves, this is actually a publicity photo for kitchen fixtures -- maybe Kohler? Can't remember, but I don't think it's a real kitchen.
One jelly stain and the whole effect is ruined.
nah--not my idea of good design
I agree with the magazine editor that this looks very composed, not real. The space around the sink to place what you're washing/drying is unusable in the real world.
There are no pipes under the sink. It's a placebo kitchen.
