The table forms the heart of any kitchen. Here is where life is played out - stories about love and friendship, successes and failures, little comedies and day-to-day tragedies. People are happiest when surrounded by personal belongings. These are what they use to create their own atmosphere. These are the things that turn a kitchen into their kitchen. Nowadays, people increasingly see kitchens as a space in which to spend time, to live - over and above or even instead of cooking.

The requirements placed on their living space vary depending on the time of day or the occasion - perhaps a relaxing breakfast or an evening in the kitchen with family and friends. So as well as considering which functions and applications an individual would like, bulthaup b3 Milan also takes account of when he will need them and/or which atmosphere he may wish to create with them.
