Even though kitchen islands can be really convenient once the home chef requires additional space to cook the dinner, islands can be an annoyance in terms of space-management. One designer seems to have solved that issue. With a simple yet effective system, Tim Thaler has created a motorized kitchen island which basically hides beneath the floor once not required. Designed to be managed via iPhone, this creation comes up and down with a simple touch of a button. However, there does not seem to be a lot of info about how this ‘sci-fi’ kitchen island came to be.
