Missed this one the first time around: Ekokook is a holistic kitchen design project from 2010 by The Faltazi Lab design collective, and it is more than a series of pretty renderings; these guys have done serious research, as you'll see on their website, in their bid to introduce ecologically-sound practices into the modern home.
So what exactly is the Ekokook? It is a complete kitchen system that strives to reduce not only food waste, but electrical and water waste. While it's impossible to succinctly summarize the myriad details that The Faltazi Lab have considered, the following should give you the basic idea:
Our project is based on four essentials: waste management, kitchen health, reduction/consumption of energy, and intelligent storage. Our kitchen has built-in fittings for selecting, processing and storing all kinds of wastes: organic, solid and liquid. As well, the alternatives for conserving and cooking that we propose target a more healthy cuisine, one that uses fresh products raised locally, which are stored in bulk.
We include electrical appliances that consume less energy, such as twin-tier dishwasher, steam oven and refrigerator with compartments. We also try to use materials and fabrication processes that have the least possible negative impact on the environment and which are long-lasting.
