Inspired by his 90-years old grandmother, Dirk Biotto has designed ChopChop Kitchen. For people who love cooking, kitchen is the heart of the home where they would spend most of the time there. The functionality and practicality would be the main point when it comes to kitchen design, because even our every day routines of making a meal can be difficult with poorly designed kitchen, especially to those with extraordinary needs. Simple cooking tasks can be problematic to some people to perform, especially disabled and elderly people, making a meal would become a daily struggle.
To answer this challenge, ChopChop has incorporated universal design philosophy in its design to provide useful tools as well as aesthetic design for any household where people can prepare meals in their adaptable kitchen space.

This concept kitchen gives you the chance to customize the wooded kitchen counter to suit your needs. It’s been designed with interlocking steel tubes for the frame to allow you to adjust the height to fit your body perfectly. There’s a perforated backplate that offers plenty of space to hang your kitchen utensils using bended steel components, screwed into the back with wing bolts.
All your kitchen equipment is highly visible in plain sight, thus, making them accessible and ready to use whenever you need it. The well placed, open storage area allows you to collect and keep all various things you need in one place. It doesn’t use doubled/long cupboards that might take up more space in your kitchen, it is helpful for people with restricted mobility. The modern design complements your existing contemporary interior décor.
The extendable hose makes it easy to wash up any objects which can be too heavy to be carried around. The sloped side of the sink makes it easier to slide pans up to the work surface. This is very helpful for people who are unable to lift or carry heavy objects around the kitchen. There are 2 laser cut steel plates to cover the sink as well as serve as drainage or additional storage area.
The embedded grater is also useful since you don’t require both of your hand to hold food in place, for different grating result, simply exchange the grate. All grated fruits/vegetables are collected in a drawer, underneath the grater, ready to use. Even when you want to chop up or slice your ingredients, a grid (inspired by woodworking benches) fixes your ingredient with steel bolts to keep it in place.
ChopChop is an easy kitchen with all features that help you to personalize your kitchen and make food preparation easier whether you are disabled or not.
