The Tree of Life by Zahari Ganchev, a National Academy of Art design student based in Sofia, Bulgaria, is a futuristic concept that addresses the needs of a kitchen. It specifically amalgamates fundamental appliances including the refrigerator, oven, and dishwasher. In a way, it even purports to replace the chef, allowing people to prepare and cook their meals via their tablet, which can be controlled from the comfort of their living room.

Entered into the 2014 Electrolux design competition, the Tree of Life by Zahari Ganchev is inspired by the shapes of a Beobab tree and a Ganoderma lucidum mushroom, bringing an organic touch to the kitchen even as it introduces hi-tech possibilities. The food is meant to be stored in the trunk while meals are cooked on its mushroom caps.
