Gastro Gnomes would be familiar with the importance of tools like Mortar and Pestle when it comes to making delicious gourmet quality food. Used to crush spices, herbs and other solid substances, mortars and pestles are usually made of hard wood, marble, clay and are designed pretty unimaginatively. However the same cannot be said for the Glass and Oak, Mortar and Pestle which looks more like a stunning showpiece than a kitchen tool! This sculpturistic looking creating will inspire many epicurean fantasies and make the art of crushing spices more enjoyable. The pestle is made from a strong colored glass and has been designed to act as a solid tool for crushing and grinding. Where as the mortal is made from Oak and can also be used as a cutting board. The Glass and Oak, Mortar and Pestle has been designed by Shira Keret and can be purchased from Etsy.
Until now I have shown you various ways of saving precious space when it comes to kids' playing areas, bathrooms or home offices. It's now time to look at your kitchen, especially if it's a very small one. The Cook 'n' Roll is a concept that adds plenty of utility to your crowded kitchen while looking cool in the process. Acting as an all-in-one kitchen furniture piece, the Cook 'n' Roll offers you plenty of uses: cooktop, dishwasher, sink, oven, storage and sanitizer. The whole design is very daring and it proposes some ingenious solutions: an inductive cooking surface, sensory cleaning sticks (waterless dish-washing) and a sink, an infrared oven and a storage area. The Cook 'n' Roll is still just a concept for modern kitchens but we'll definitely look forward for this one to hit stores. Via Yanko Design

The wine pourer is a brilliant piece of design that turns pouring a glass of wine into a piece of performance theater. This is the perfect center piece for a dinner party, although clearly this is limited to just four glasses at a time.
There is something about glass that creates a feeling of style and class in a room and in particular, the kitchen because it is clean and bright, but it has to be kept cleaned all of the time, otherwise it will end up looking dull and dated.
Show off your wine collection with panache by getting the striking water dropped shaped wine rack by Cattelan Italia. The varnished steel finish creates a paradox of subtlety and drama and we love how Cattelan Italia has reconciled creative design with functionality.
