The pace of innovation within the kitchen industry is phenomenal and this is never more obvious than when visiting the big trade shows such as CES in Las Vegas, LivingKitchen in Cologne or Eurocucina in Milan.

However, a more focused approach and a starting point are always the societal shifts that influence the way we use our kitchens. From here, how manufacturers, designers, and innovators are reacting to these shifts, not just within the kitchen industry, but also with an eye on the wider environments is highlighted
