Compact Kitchen For Small Spaces

The alternative post for this was going to be “why design students never cease to amaze me”. Designed by Kristin Laass and Norman Ebelt from Germany, this clever project (spotted on freshome) is called “Small Type” and it has the wonderful and extremely practical ability of fitting in almost any interior – even your studio apartment.
Measuring only one square meter (or a little over ten square feet) when closed, this compact kitchen serves as a table, a refrigerator, an oven, a sink and a storage space.
Not only do I love how compact and well-thought out this product is – it looks great too. It’s just another way to prove how little we need to get by.

This product was showcased at the DMY International Design Festival Berlin 2010 and it is one of the six small kitchens presented by students.
What do you think? Could you cook up a storm in a kitchen like this?
