Eurocucina 2014 – Function gets fashion

We all love kitchen appliances because they make our life easier and take the drudgery out of mundane household tasks. But until recently, the worth of a kitchen appliance was judged on its ability to perform a set task rather than its appearance.

Today, that’s all changed because kitchen appliances have become an important part of the overall design of a the kitchen enabling designers to enhance the look they want to achieve through their choice of appliance.

Of course, Eurocucina is a showcase for the most cutting edge kitchen appliances in terms of both function and fashion, so we thought we’d show you some examples.
