This is counter intuitive. A stove and kitchen workspace that doubles as a chair? It is an odd but interesting combination. This piece of furniture/kitchenette can be placed in different parts of the house if so desired. But my question is: is that a fully functional stove and if so, how does it work? In any event, this is, to me very cutting edge and a great example of thinking outside the box.

Implications - Customers affected by the recent credit crunch seek products and services that offer dual- and multi-functionality as a way of reducing costs. The financial crisis results in consumers downsizing their homes, resulting in the need for compact and affordable items that offer multiple uses.
