With urban apartments getting smaller, kitchens are getting smaller as well. But this can actually be a good thing, as bigger kitchens are less environmentally friendly. On top of that, many millennials prefer to eat out rather than cooking at home, a more convenient choice (though the apparent lack of cooking know-howcontributes to the phenomenon too).
Hoping to encourage kitchen-challenged millennials to cook more, Royal College of Art graduate Yu Li has created Assembly, a compact, multifunctional kitchen set for people who want to cook at home, but who might not have the space or the right set of tools to do so.
This project is intersting in the interest of the approach to the user: millenials are less interesting in a big kitchen and more in the function of the food.
