The Lapitec Chef is an induction unit that activates with the placement of a silicone mat. Its discreet design allows users to remove the silicone mat to create a disguised countertop. Lapitec, an Italian company, created a cooking system for users to conceal when it is not in use. Its interface is etched into the countertop for a minimalist appearance.
The innovative system features an electrothermal component developed by the kitchen brand in collaboration with the University of Padua. Users can activate the touch controls and switch on the system when the Lapitec Chef silicone mat is placed in the appropriate position. The sleek design allows for easy cleaning and storage while saving valuable counter space for other activities.
