Dublin students show off environmentally-friendly kitchen designs ★★★★★
The National College of Art and Design held the Sustainable Kitchen Living Competition today (Thursday February 10th) at their Dublin headquarters, according to the Irish Times.
Among the kitchen design innovations on show from the industrial design final-year students were extractor fans that recycle smoke and give out oxygen and device that saves water at the same time as being a family game.
The top prize was won by John Costello for his kitchen unit which analyses food and the energy use of appliances to help people act in a more environmentally-friendly way.
"I was always taking stuff apart as a child," Mr Costello told the news provider. "I was more interested in the inside of things than the outside."
Last month, interior design expert Claire Warrington said recycled glass makes a good addition to a kitchen because it is both environmentally friendly and on-trend.
