Kitchen Perfection

As the heart of the home, the kitchen serves as both a practical, multi-functional space and an architectural statement. Design Freedom is the ability to distribute and integrate appliances into work zones that perfectly match the way you use a space, so you can functionally, ergonomically and aesthetically fine-tune the kitchen to suit your lifestyle.

Work Zones

Dedicated areas for undertaking different tasks and actions in the kitchen.

When you’re designing a kitchen, the plan is typically shaped by how you cook, cool and clean. Traditionally, this was dictated by a work triangle of fridge, stove and sink, for efficient movement for the kitchen’s main user. However, today's kitchens often have multiple cooks and different social and performance requirements. Considering the kitchen as a series of interlinked work zones, shaped by personal preferences and household patterns of use, is a valuable way to define your ideal appliance layout.

Patterns of use

The activities you undertake in the kitchen most often.

Patterns of use represent the rhythm of life in the home. How you shop, what you cook, how you like to entertain – even where you like to sit and drink your morning coffee.

From midweek convenience to weekend gourmet, understanding patterns of use as an ergonomic overlay can help you shape a kitchen layout that responds perfectly to different use scenarios, personalizing the flow of space.


We design appliances for flexible placement, so you can create work zones that perfectly match your patterns of use.

Today's kitchen is the domain of many: multiple cooks, the coffee and tea makers, the dishwasher loaders and unloaders. We design human-centered, insight-driven and modular products that can be distributed beyond the work triangle to where they are most useful. By distributing products into work zones that perfectly support your patterns of use, you can accentuate the social nature and ergonomic flow of a kitchen, so people can come together without getting in each other's way.

Design Details

Insights into the changing nature of the kitchen drive our commitment to integration. Our integrated appliances are able to assume the craft and materiality of the kitchen for a seamless and unified aesthetic. They also afford a range of bespoke detailing approaches – the key to creating a crafted and inventive kitchen architecture.

Live Life out of Drawers

As the kitchen becomes the home's quintessential multi-functional space, integrated appliances can change the aesthetic reading from function and utility to cohesive architectural statement.


Modular in its design, the DishDrawer™ Dishwasher gives you the freedom to design a kitchen that is perfectly matched to the way you live. Where dishes can be loaded easily at waist height, placed conveniently under preparation spaces, configured side by side, stacked or distributed around the kitchen to best suit your needs.


By pairing DishDrawer™ Dishwashers, the bench space can remain free from dirty dishes, with one DishDrawer™ Dishwasher cleaning while another is ready to be loaded. With a DishDrawer™ Dishwasher installed either side of a sink, the process of load, wash, unload is at its most efficient and ergonomic.


The flexibility of placement and function is the result of our human-centered design philosophy – a curiosity for the way people interact with appliances that we apply to our products, redefining what a kitchen should be.
