The worktop, reinforced on the inside with Corian verticals and solid water resistant wood, includes a Corian mobile Charger built in its surface as well as the electrical and usb sockets. Kitch T is easily connected to water and electrical supplies through its left and right outlets.

The appliances used are Bosch. Waterworks Atlas R.W. bar faucet fits perfectly to meet the industrial design, and match the roughness of the metallic holding structure. Hafele soft hardware systems and Loox warm led light. Fridge is really a larger Dometic minibar. The led light lit icons inside the worktop are an example of the performances of Corian DuPont Illumination series.
The biggest challenge was to make every space of this compact kitchen functional and in use. Since the elements underneath the worktop are only 80cm wide, and opening from both sides, the overall depth is smaller than the standard of 60cm. Therefore, we get drawers which are not in the standard sizes. The smallest drawer found behind the fridge is 27cm deep, which gives enough space for the silverware. Nothing in this kitchen is standard, it is designed totally to fit the shape of Table T.
