Plenty of urban dwellers can, and do, live without ovens. I was one of them, and my friends in New York that did have ovens often used them to store sweaters. But few can live without a stovetop.
The problem with stovetops in a space-tight apartment is that they take up so much dang space. Most city apartments have tiny kitchens and every square inch counts. So Adriano Design's Ordine, a stowable dual-burner induction hub system, looks like it would come in handy.
A revolution that changes the concept of the kitchen top, a cooking hub you can place when and where you need it, and then, once fulfilled it its purpose, you can hang it like a pan.
More freedom to arrange the cooking space, modularity, scalability, like a building block to build a cooking narrative, unthinkable magical scenarios of a new architecture to come. Ordine transforms and creates a new order … in the kitchen.
Another of the company's offerings is the Cucinotta, designed for spaces where there isn't even a counter to spare. And it comes with a self-contained hood:
A simple wooden structure supports an induction hub, a utility drawer (that may be transformed into a fridge) and a hood, all easily transportable to anywhere, attached only to a discreet red power cord.

I induce that induction is the way to go.
I like it. There is a lot of safety advantages to the concept which I think is important. With this concept you can easily arrange all the induction plates further to the back, decreasing the likelihood of a child trying to grab the handle of a pot or pan. I also like the fact that you used induction as your heating method since it makes for an ever safer product compared to more conventional stove tops that uses a heated surface.
Love the concept, but are those the real buttons? Seems I'd have to read a guide to figure out how to work it.
Very similar to the IKEA version of this. But better looking I must say ;)
I can hardly wait until someone sits on the chair...
It's induction, so as long as you don't have steel in your back pocket, you'll be fine.
