The Mini Kitchen by BOFFI
In 1963 Italian designer Joe Colombo created a kitchen for Boffi that embodied the futuristic efficiency, that was part of an increasingly mobile client.
Boffi’s mini kitchen was a cube on wheels, housing the three fundamental functions; cooking, storage and refrigeration – all in less than one cubic meter (11 cubic feet).
Originally constructed of plastic, coated wood, and stainless steel it was reintroduced in 2007 trimmed in Corian.
Powered by a single cord, the design was added to the permanent collection of the New York Museum of Modern Art.
The Boffi kitchen is more than just a kitchen, it is an abstract that includes pure function. Maybe a novelty but one of design innovation.
