Ergonomic standards of design ensure that the average person will be perfectly comfortable within the dimensions of different fixtures and furnishings, but the Transgenerational Kitchen is a concept that recognizes different users' specific needs.

This culinary contraption is not just smart design, but a total space-saver. A central pole is the only anchored part of the food preparation unit, and the different appliances are all incorporated into separate leaves of the system, able to be matched up with the peanut-shaped cross section of the other parts.

Marta Rudyk has engineered the Transgenerational Kitchen so that the separate layers of stovetop, sink, cabinets and counter tops can be adjusted up, down and side to side with a remote control, encouraging ease of interaction with the young, the old, the disabled and people of all sizes.
