Dwell on Design: Kitchen Ecology

We attended the Dwell on Design conference this weekend and encountered so many beautiful, thought-provoking, and innovative designs. Held in Los Angeles, the conference features all areas of the home, but this year's event had an especially strong kitchen component, with exhibits, cooking demos, and panel discussions on the intersection of food and design. The Kitchen Ecology exhibition curated by Designboom featured eco-friendly, energy efficient solutions from international, young, and upcoming designers. Check out some of our favorites...
