Fully Automated Cabinets

Just when I thought I have seen everything, the latest innovations in kitchen automation never ceases to amaze me. Anvil Cabinet and Mill, a long time leading provider of custom cabinetry, recently launched Anvil Motion, the world’s first fully automated cabinetry system. For centuries, cabinets have opened with a hinged, swinging motion.

Not so with Anvil Motion’s patent-pending technology, the first system with doors and panels that open on command. Simply wave your hand and cabinet panels and doors rise and fall vertically with precision, concealing or revealing contents. Take a look.

  1. Precisely! Think of it as Haute Couture for cabinets. The trick of this is translating this concept for the masses. I have my doubts about practicality in a power outage or battery failure. "Oh darn…my batteries died and I can't open the door, door, doors to get to the ovens." I actually don't mind seeing appliances in a kitchen.


  2. Karen has a point. I think people want to move away from ultra high end luxury. While I think an entire kitchen of these cabinets is a bit like the SS Enterprise, I am still trying to find the practicality in this concept.
