Amsterdam-based design firm Kolenik Eco Chic Design have released designs of their unique Ocean Kitchen, a transformative new take on residential space. The contemporary minimalist kitchen offers a moment of serenity to the viewer through the inclusion of a vast aquarium beneath the island's countertop. Positioned as the architectural centerpiece of the space, the island in Ocean Kitchen gracefully animates the surrounding kitchen.

The illuminated tank disguises the cabinetry, appliances and inner-workings of the kitchen using mirrored glass and underwater landscaping. The tank is cleverly arranged in an L-shape to capitalize on space, offering seemingly invisible storage. The grand finale: a sophisticated electronic rising countertop provides an opportunity to feed live fish in the enormous tank.
Kolenik specializes in sustainable design, offering an environmentally friendly product line. Lead designer Robert Kolenik's portfolio includes the Fletcher Hotel in Amsterdam.
