Stadtnomaden – The Portable Cube Kitchen

Stadtnomaden ala carte-systemGerman manufacturer Stadtnomaden (city nomad in English) has developed a line of cabinetry for those who move around often and need to take their cabinetry with them. The A la Carte – System offers the flexibility to pack up your cabinetry and roll it off using the caster option. Each unit is 24″ wide by 24″ deep and can can easily be broken down for transport. The cabinetry is constructed of plywood  and laminate so it’s light weight and durable. Dishwasher, sink and oven units are available and each is designed with accessible backs to eliminate cutting for appliance hook ups.

Stadtnomaden ala carte-systemThe designers certainly had the studio apartment market in mind for these cabinets. This idea also appears perfect for commercial applications. Imagine a traveling chef able to set up and cook anywhere appliance hookups are available. It’s doubtful your home kitchen will win any design awards with this cabinetry set up but you’ll certainly have a great conversation starter.

If you need more than 24″ uninterrupted counter space you’ll be out of luck. It’s also reasonable to guess that these cabinets are not going to readily accept North American appliances either. Perhaps if you live in an urban environment in Europe these might be a good alternative to the typical installed kitchen. However for the U.S. market it seems unlikely to catch on.
