    This modern kitchen design utilized an aquarium as one of the main focal points as an interesting*backsplash. The kitchen was designed by Darren Morgan with clean lines, white cabinets and a combination of surfaces and lighting to create this one-of-a-kind kitchen.

    “I wanted this kitchen to literally come alive within the architecture surrounding it while still performing beyond expectation on functional level. My aim is to encourage a relationship between user and kitchen right down to knowing the names of the fish and having the functionality tailored to the user’s lifestyle,” said Morgan about the design.

    “The remotely operated doors and custom made aquarium breath life into this kitchen while the island introduces softer geometry and mood setting colour. This kitchen fits any social occasion or time of day. Achieving ergonomic efficiency and aesthetic satisfaction on every level is the reason for this design,” he adds.

    The semi-stark nature of the aquarium fits with the design and we can definitely see some of the design elements from aquariums like the Ecoreef*or even some of the more artistic implementations from Coral Morpholigic’s “Morphologic Studios.” Either way, we can see a simple yet elegant design and restraint in a system like this. How would you design this aquarium to compliment this sleek kitchen?
