The Invisible Kitchen, the special event organized by Miele during the last edition of Fuorisalone in Milan, was a success. Visitors were more than 23,000, who could see the ring-shaped installation with a diameter of 8 m weighing several tonnes, with two kitchen chefs preparing a 3-course menu, supported by a virtual cooking assistant. The latter compiled menus, weighed ingredients, supplied tips on preparation and on a sustainable approach to food. The assistant took into consideration the user’s level of cooking expertise and only intervened when things threatened to go wrong. The technology behind The Invisible Kitchen stems from research scenarios and projects under the auspices of the Miele Design Centre. The event was nominated for the ‘Milan Design Award’.
