No matter how small our kitchens are, we don’t want to sacrifice our comforts. Which means bulky appliances take over a good portion of our pression counter space. To deal with the situation, designer Jan des Bouvrie and Dutch manufacturer Princess came up with Compact4All – a kitchen appliance system that incorporates all kitchen basics within the span of 16 inches. How? The items are stacked on top of each other, producing a uni-piece. The system includes a juicer, toaster, coffee maker and tea kettle. Each segment can be detached and used individually, but when fit together the quartet can share one outlet. Brilliant.

Whilst the idea of stacking appliances to save space seems great, individually these ‘compact’ items seem huge. Unless the model is really small, that’s one enormous two-slice toaster. Shame they couldn’t get Naoto Fukasawa involved in this concept.

How much would this set you back in AUD? And I agree with James, a Japanese designer would have made it even more compact, with nicer lines instead of just a square.
