The Ocean Island brings the ocean into your kitchen

Interesting Engineering

With the Ocean Island gone are the days when the space under the kitchen island was home to pots and pans as designer Robert Kolenik has come up with a better and more aesthetically pleasing idea. The designer has turned the space into a huge saltwater aquarium that will be the talking point of any kitchen.

There is more; while it does offer a very attractive look to your kitchen you don’t have to give up all of the storage space. The Ocean Island has been cleverly designed with a 'secret' L-shape, which gives you storage but at the same time hides it. It is also the perfect hiding spot for all the plumbing and gas pipes required for the sink and gas hobs.

One of the major disadvantages is of course the maintenance requirement. The clever design of the Ocean Island features a clever mechanism that can raise the counter top automatically by just pushing one single button, allowing for easy access to maintain the aquarium. This is one island that would look right at home in a James Bond movie.
