One might consider, then, to move from strict triangles into zones. A modern-day social and open-planned kitchen can instead be designed around self-contained zones. One for baking, one for preparing, one for plating, one for reading cookbooks, one for mixing that new drink et cetera. Designing with zones means that more people can join the fun without being it the way of each other. The zones that are not in use at the moment can be used to “park” people not taking part in the cooking activity, but still in the conversation. Human-centered kitchen design, utilizing zones, is indeed more than the flavour of the week, so to speak.
