Simplex is a small kitchen which can be placed in tiniest apartments. It allows an easy transport for moving whereby the product‘s lifetime will be increased and the costly acquisition of a new kitchen prevented. A single person can assemble or dismantle the kitchen in less than 5 minutes. A screwdriver is the only tool required. Due to its organisation there is no loss regarding cooking qualities or functionality compared to a big fitted kitchen. With the big movable cutting board simplex provides more than enough space for cutting and the temporary storage of food. Transposable elements facilitate a flexible positioning of the kitchen. The sustainability of the product is achieved by its longevity which explains the use of only durable materials for the construction. A modular element for bigger households as well as an attachable bar can be added to the standard module.
