CIBO is an all inclusive portable prep and cleanup station designed to increase the linear workflow in the kitchen. CIBO acts as a prep station, a drying rack, and also has a slim profile that allows it to be stored away in or out of the kitchen.
The Design process
The design process started with sketching kitchen-kits for all sorts of different scenarios. Every kitchen was considered such as dorm kitchens, outdoor kitchens, and even RV kitchens.
After settling on an idea involving flat-packing, blue foam was used to construct mockups.
The following photos show the first iteration of CIBO in blue foam roughly to scale. After the foam model, I moved to modeling CIBO in CAD.
CIBO would pass through four rounds of CAD before the final version
Version 3 would be the first to integrate the drying rack feature the would eventually be seen in the final design of CIBO
