On a typical KBCULTURE Monday, I post a [hopefully] interesting kitchen. This being Earth Day, that kitchen is deconstructed, illustrating its sustainable parts and principles. Developed by the Finnish company Puustelli, the Miinus kitchen is slated for release later this year. Every decision regarding Miinus' design has been made with the environment foremost in mind. From VOC-free materials to a greenhouse cabinet to a carcasse that's 100% percent recyclable, the room has been totally reconceived. The project is, in my humble opinion, groundbreaking. puustellimiinus.com
