What's cooking.

Bulthaup roots – Otl Aicher and the essence of cooking

AicherBuch Kopie_KT

The famed book by Otl Aicher “The Kitchen for Cooking”, shown here in a later re-edition with a different typeface in the cover, was surely the starting point of a revolution in the way we think about kitchen design.

Taking his inspirations from professional cooking he started putting the preparation of food back into the centre of the kitchen: the main symbol was a butcher bloc for cutting.

We are currently researching the web for more material on the roots of Bulthaup (see our other post about current Bulthaup here https://kitchentalkblog.com/2013/01/03/bulthaup/) and the iconic work of Otl Aicher for the famed german kitchen producer. The break with clean, closed cabinets and opening up the kitchen to a professional like cooking system feels old in terms of aesthetics, but very new in terms of needs. To be continued. We might need this kind of thinking again today…
