Rendez-vous (featured on the top) is an interactive table, the first of its kind that features a tabletop that embeds an inductive cooking system on the whole surface that uses sensor technology to break away from the dedicated cooking zones, so you can now place the pan anywhere on the tabletop and start cooking. The tabletop powers all your appliances without the use of a cord. A mobile phone or blender can be placed on the surface to charge or activate. Beneath the table are modular drawers that can hold a stove, refrigerator or almost any kitchen appliance depending on your needs. When dining, the drawers tuck away beneath the table. Another futuristic feature of this interactive dining-cum-cooking table is a virtual chef that guides the consumer through the cooking process, making it foolproof.

And the upcoming trend in kitchen design emphasizes on the designer kitchen that hides away when not in use like Giorgio Armani’s disappearing kitchen “The Calyx” that was exhibited at the Salone del Mobile this year.
