Homes are ever changing places. So they were in the past, so they still are today. Intimate spaces that we only share with designated people, that we can decide to open to the world only if we wish to.
The heart of the home, particularly in Italy, but also in other parts of the world, is the kitchen. Closed and secluded from the rest of the house, or open to the living room, or again the kitchen as a place that encloses need and passion, sharing and intimacy. There, technology is a growing presence, a valuable allied both for the kitchen-savvy and for the ones who like to spend there the least time possible.


The contest is centred on a domestic kitchen projected into the future, where design and technology merge, and everything revolves around an aspiring chef who practices at home to fulfil their dream: cooking in a starred restaurant. A real or virtual space, a contemporary or future domestic kitchen to emulate the performances, outcomes, moves and dynamics of a professional kitchen. It can be the evolution of a home kitchen, a kitchen set in 2090, or a place changed in shape and space, that speaks all languages of the world and connects with the universe. A place to create. Write a few lines to outline, in the first person, the chef’s features, their “field of action”, and the time coordinates of your project. Think of the space they need in order to create, between local heritage and global innovation: what traditions would they start from? Are you designing a space for them and their future job only, or for their public? Or both?.
