Throwing the kitchen sink at a business

Ahhaproject dishwasherDishwashers are a real design problem – they have to adapt to all shapes and sizes of cutlery, dishes and glassware, and never quite get it right.

 

For single people or couples, they are often oversized, wasting a lot of energy and water. However, a company called Ahhaproject has come up with a solution – a rotating sink combined with a dishwasher.

 

Founded in 2010, Ahhaproject founder Jinwoo Han and his team create products and services that are “synergistic with clients’ needs”.  The company is based in Munich and Seoul.

 

“The idea came about when we realised the potential of space conservation when our sink was full of dirty dishes,” the designers say.

 

“The system works in a way that the dishes are cleaned within the sink, using the mechanics of a dishwasher.”

 

The sink is divided into two parts – one acts as a sink and the other acts as a dishwasher. This would be the perfect solution for a small kitchen, particularly for someone who lives alone.

 

Can you think of any other kitchen facilities that could do with a downsize?
