We love good food and we love to cook, so naturally we were thrilled when we discovered that Berlin-based publisher Gestalten released a new book entitled Kitchen Kulture that celebrates the kitchen as the new living room, a space for social gathering, collaborative cooking, event hosting, and communal dining.
The room that used to be a service area relegated to the back of the house is now the multi-functional hub of the home. Who needs some inspiration on how to transform their kitchen into a lively space should definitely dip into this book. It offers creative kitchen solutions for any size and budget, uncovering the full potential of today’s kitchen.

Set in a mountainous region of Brazil – known for its low temperatures – the ‘Mororó House’ has been designed to offer generous internal spaces that provide residents with inviting atmospheres on cold days. Recently completed by Studio MK27, continuous volumes create a stark duality between an opaque block – where the living room is found – and the transparent area which houses a heated pool and sauna. An external wooden deck connects the programs, serving as a solarium to be used during winter months.

Photographers BJ and Richeille Formento met exactly a decade ago, while working on a common assignment, and have been partners in both life and work ever since. Together they travel around the world, creating highly inspirational visual series that treat the human persona as prime matter that can be re-shaped through the most unconventional of scenarios.
