Electrolux Senior Vice President of Design Henrik Otto showed off a new concept in kitchen appliances during the Feb. 12, 2010, DesignBoost event at the Swedish Museum of Architecture in Stockholm.
Heart of the Home is an integrated appliance that functions as a kitchen table, a cooking surface, and a bar all in one. This intelligent, amorphous, interchangeable cooking surface that adapts to user needs and does away with the need for cookware.
The use can simply place food ingredients on the surface. The appliance identifies the ingredients and presents the user with a list of possible recipes. The user chooses a recipe then marks an area with his hand to determine how large the cooking area should be, and a cooking vessel is created by pressing into the malleable surface of the material. Cooking parameters are then set with a finger touch.
