Researchers at Lund University have created a concept kitchen dubbed the Ikea Hacka. This project was put together as part of the Concept Kitchen 2025 project, which envisions how the kitchens of the future might look. The kitchen is designed to allow for and even encourage modification and personalization.
The Ikea Hacka kitchen's flexibility allows for various core units, such as third-party units or other Ikea units, to be integrated into the final design of the kitchen. Using just simple and small tools and components, kitchens can be created that cater to the specific needs of individuals.
This kitchen concept allows for a high degree of customization, something which is expected to become more and more important with kitchen designs of the future.
