LivingKitchen presents the life of the future

What does the kitchen design of tomorrow look like, how are nutrition trends changing technologies in the kitchen, and how intelligently can we network cooking and consumption, living and eating? Parallel with imm cologne, brand manufacturers and designers at LivingKitchen will present their vision of life in the future – with many new products and attractive events.

Steam cookers and trough hoods, island solutions and the concrete kitchen, cooking evenings and cooking robots, outdoor luxury grill and vegan cuisine – the future of the traditional kitchen has changed more dramatically in recent years than in the 30 years previous. And it is continuing to change rapidly. Where is this transformation taking us? Discover the latest kitchen trends at LivingKitchen in Cologne.

LivingKitchen opens up a conversation about the future of cooking

The LivingKitchen trade fair may primarily be a business platform and stage for product innovations, but also increasingly sees itself as a forum for discussion of the question of the future of the kitchen – and everything connected to it. Kitchens have seldom looked so different and had as many different functions as they do today. Similar to back then with the invention of the "Frankfurt kitchen", it is also once again today a laboratory of different lifestyles, and thus a mirror of societal transformation.
