A successful modern kitchen relies on its ability to bring together function — it is a space with purpose, after all — with an aesthetic that also happens to be pleasing to the eye. In the case of bulthaup’s b2 series, herein lies the beautiful irony: the German design firm’s sleek wood cabinet was designed to house and conceal your oven, fridge and dishwasher — and yet you can’t take your eyes off it. 

Besides the innovation of bringing your three most space-consuming kitchen appliances together in one shared area, the 6-foot-high unit features doors set on a pivot hinge so they can swing open and slide along the cabinet’s side to save even more square footage.  

The three-piece series, which also includes a workbench and a tool cabinet, is available at bulthaup dealers, in oak and walnut.

With all three pieces in place, the work bench, the tool cabinet and the appliance storage cabin, bulthaup’s design makes for a Zen kitchen.
