Drama in the kitchen is typically the result of some male/female dynamic, but Porsche Design has teamed up with Poggenpohl for a solution that might actually cost less in the long run when you get done factoring in the cost of chiropractor visits to fix your back after nights on the couch. Of course Porsche Design has done everything from hard drives to multihammers, not to mention shoes, watches, and everything in between, so a kitchen isn't such a big stretch. What better place to store that NeoPresso machine than in the P'7340 kitchen?

The modular design makes extensive use of aluminum, a Porsche Design trademark. The lines are clean and intended to appeal to masculine tastes. Porsche and Poggenpohl are citing a rising interest among men to fiddle around in the kitchen as an impetus for the high tech look, and that's also probably why there's an audio-video system built into the kitchen. There are lots of slick touches to keep the clean lines, such as overengineered latch and handle setups to open the doors and drawers electrically, though you can get conventional handles, too. Think of it as a kitchen with available Tiptronic.

      I have a LaCie external hard drive which proudly proclaims that it was designed by Porsche. It's a fu**ing rectangle. I see this kitchen is also a bunch of fu**ing rectangles. An imaginative bunch, they have there. I wish I was cultured and upper class enough to see the sheer brilliance and subtle nuances of rectangles.

      Looks more like a morgue than a kitchen. Don't they ever smile in Stuttgart?

      Porsche is about one of the last luxury manufacturers I associate with good design. Probably one notch above Lexus.

        How many commercials you have watch from Lexus in the U.S., that you think Lexus is good looking? Have you Americans no taste?

      If it doesn't say "Porsche" on every single cupboard so that everybody would know what a baller you are, its not worth buying, as there are much better (and cheaper) kitchens out there...

      you guys know that Porsche Design Group is kind of a separate entity from Porsche AG (the car company), right?

      I don't think the pictures presented here do this kitchen justice. Of course it looks dark and cold without anything in it! But once you are actually using it, there will be enough colorful details from the food, utensils, and other things you put in there.

      If the cabinets themselves look busy, how cluttered is it going to look once you put your stuff in it?

      Also, I don't understand why this should be considered masculine - not all women want a fake antique look in their kitchen.

      When I remodeled my home, people kept telling me I'd make it too cold, too masculine, too European. But once they saw the final look with everything in it, they realized how overbusy and cluttered their own places are. In fact, one neighbor even said my place looks twice as big as hers... LOL!

      So, before you dismiss this, look at it in a real-life environment. And remember that Europeans either preserve the old or use their creativity and imagination to create something new - they don't build "new castles", or "antiques of tomorrow". We leave that to the Americans...
