As the world population continues to grow, designers continue to explore ultra tiny homes; yet these homes are useless unless they are outfitted with appliances such as those found in the GE Micro-Kitchen Concept. Designed with this architectural direction in mind, the GE Micro-Kitchen Concept allows people to "live large in small spaces," as headlined in its press release. Cleverly put, the statement proves more than adequate as it points to unique configurations and applications that free up counters and floors.

Simplified and downsized, the GE Micro-Kitchen Concept makes full use of a drawer system that hides away such big appliances as fridges and microwaves. Essentially the size of a credenza, a culinary unit dubbed monoblock efficiently ensures that necessary items are compact yet still usable.
