Mindful Monday: time to take a deep breath and stop. running. around.! Gigot is here with some Mindful inspiration. Introducing today: LOLO The Capsular Microkitchen by Aotta.
One often heard suggestion when listening to a guided meditation is to ‘smile at your beliefs’. Those beliefs that you are ‘not doing right’, ‘will never get it’, or are ‘just being silly sitting there breathing’. The kind of beliefs that indeed deserve ‘to be smiled at’, as they are taking you down more than helping you focus.
And then there are the other set of beliefs, that need to be taken more seriously. Such as my personal belief that joyous furniture should be welcomed at any time.
Hence my excitement for this beauty of a modular kitchen, a design by Moscow based Aotta. Each ‘Lolo’ fits one appliance (coffee machine, microwave), some utensils and can be grouped together to expand. The design is clever, but most of all playful and soothing. Doesn’t every cupboard deserve pretty legs like that?
Especially in an office environment, which at the best of times is not one of the most relaxing places, a gently smiling Lolo can remind you not to get too worked up about colleague A, client B or deadline C.
For now: let’s all put a smile upon our faces, breath in, out, hope the Lolo will actually go into production, and then get back to work. Enjoy your Mindful Monday!
