A table designed for the whole family to work side by side
Workabout is a multi-functional kitchen table centrally placed in the room. It consists of a flexible seating area at one end and a storage-drawer for ingredients and utensils at the other. The middle of the table top holds several recessed and removable storage containers. These have any number of uses – from collecting and moving chopped ingredients from the table to the stove, planting herbs, storing cookware to throwing garbage in – only your imagination sets the limits. The idea of Workabout was to bring the kitchen and the tools to the user in one space, for family members to work side by side and make cooking a playful element in the otherwise stressful everyday life.
