Topics: Design / Construction

Length: 0.5 hours | What's included: Video, Quiz, Certificate of Completion

Developed by a team of industrial designers, architects, insight researchers, and specialist architecture + design brand experts, this educational module offers a fresh take on kitchen design. With particular focus on performance and style - and the tension between those - this presentation sets out a framework for Kitchen Perfection that can be adopted by any designer, working in any style, location or budget. 
This simple structure, complemented by case study examples to illustrate key points, will give you insight into how to break down the complexity of kitchen design into simple logic. This presentation does not tell you how to design, but rather provides the scaffolding that your creativity can sit within.

Learning Objectives

At the conclusion of this session, participants will be able to:

  • Articulate the three principles of kitchen design. 
  • Summarize the aesthetic differences of appliance styles and how they can reinforce or contrast with the kitchen style. 
  • Explain how the fit of appliances can impact the overall kitchen aesthetic. 
  • Recognize the role of temperature in both cooking and cooling appliances, and the impacts on performance.
