worlds-largest-pasta-bowl1

This kitchen has one of the worlds largest pasta bowls. It may even be one of the 10 largest found in the ruins of Meganapolis when the volcano exploded. Meganapolis was a German town that exploded last year. A huge volcano was found in the basement of a Spa. German engineers were called in to put a regulator valve on the volcano. Instead they pierced the volcano’s thin skin and the whole town blew up. This black pasta bowl, and 10 smaller bowls, was all that was left.

Hi Kitchen Hipsters. I am starting to make a few platform changes to the blog. All the posts will remain. Butttttt….. I am going to be adding some video and other changes in the background. I don’t think you will notice but thought you should know what was up.

They really went all out with the drinks too. I have to tell you nothing is more refreshing than a nice cool drink from a horse trough.

Actually they had a great feed and lots of real drinks.

enter-1

This was the entrance to one of the most interesting kitchen and bath displays I have ever seen. It was located in an old castle surrounded by a moat! There were 15 groups of presenters, including Miele, Blanco, Warendorf (This used to be Miele’s kitchen cabinet company), Allmilmo and a cast of thousands!!!

If you can’t find a reason to comment on this group I will lose all hope that you are really reading this blog.


Who Is This Guy??

who-is-this

This guy showed up on one of the tours. No one knew who he was. I am pretty sure he was a coffee cup designer. He spent the better part of an hour explaining how wonderful his new cup handle was. I don’t know about you KITCHEN HIPSTERS but I couldn’t care less about the mathematics of a coffee cup handle and I really didn’t see much of a change from last years display. I was really pretty bored but didn’t want to miss the buffet table and the booze so I kept my mouth shut.

Poggenpohl Strikes Back

kitchen-hip-poggenpohl

Poggenpohl, as we all now know, has lost a bunch of core staff to Alno. I visited their showroom in Germany last week and in my opinion they are having some design troubles. I am not speaking as “the competition” but as a blogger who is observant. This kitchen from the 60s or the 70s was part of their display.

I think their deal with Porsche has put a ton of financial pressure on the company. The Porsche kitchens have not sold well as they are super expensive. Poggenpohl is also obligated, by their agreement, to purchase parts from Porsche which are being stored rather than used.

OUCH! Anyway the Poggenpohl show this year was on the sad side. They were not showing much in the way of new kitchens or design improvements. I have always

looked forward to visiting their factory showroom but this year was less than stellar.
