Gallery: Amazing Aquarium Island Turns Your Kitchen Into an Underwater ...

Do you want to turn the heart of your home into the ultimate luxury lounge? Then check out this crazy kitchen island that doubles as an aquarium! Dutch designer Robert Kolenik has upped the eco design game with his Ocean Kitchen, a stunning (and surprisingly functional) aquarium-slash-table that can turn your kitchen into an oceanic wonder.

The Ocean Kitchen is a massive aquarium topped with an L-shaped slab of Corian that lifts up with the touch of a button. Each aquarium is limited edition and made-to-measure, and the units come complete with plenty of hidden storage space to keep your kitchen organized. While the Ocean Kitchen might not be for every kitchen (or budget), it’s hard to beat for fans of tropical fish or anyone looking for a jaw-dropping statement piece.

Robert Kolenik creates his stylish pieces by blending natural materials and sustainable methods with timeless design. After graduating with a degree in economics, Kolenik turned his eye to design, tackling everything from lighting to furniture and drawing inspiration from the shapes and colors of nature.
