KITCHEN DESIGN; Is the working triangle still relevant?

Over the years all we have heard is "the working triangle" and how important it is to a functional kitchen but is the working triangle as it is so well know really that pivotal to a functional kitchen? 




The Modern kitchen design and lifestyle needs to take on modern contemporary approach to planning and design thought, we should be exploring the design and aesthetic yes but more so the function. In the 1980's a idea called open plan design and the working triangle where big things in kitchen design. Now in the modern kitchen design of 2017 we are now creating living rooms that consist of a kitchen, lounge and dinning room "the modern day living room" 
This approach to modern living and our needs to be connected to our love ones when we are at home is the driving force, we want our spaces to be open and light filled, connected to the outdoors. 

The good old working triangle is not a dead thought process in the modern kitchen, we actually feel the idea or concept has morphed into an new more engaging idea of the working triangles, thru cooking shows like Masterchief and star chiefs such as Jamie Oliver and co the kitchen is now playing more than a central role in our living and we are seeing more and more families cooking and engaging in the kitchen space than ever before. For this reason we feel the focus on a single working triangle is a out-dated thought process and the more innovative addition of a S to triangle (working triangles) allows for more than one person to function in the kitchen at the same time, creating multiple zones and triangles in the process. 

Active and passive, this is a very large part of the modern kitchen design, having areas that are passive such as access to cups which are directly located next to the fridge so when someone is active in the cooking zones the space can function, simile when at the cooktop cooking you want the spices next to you not in a pantry 2 to 3 metres away, this has taken on the term the dynamic kitchen. Blum have been educating the market place on this style or thought process for the modern kitchen for some time now and it makes a lot of sense in the modern kitchen design. 
The Living room is now a integrated space incorporating many functions and spaces. 

So let us know, do you think the working triangle is still relevant in the modern kitchen design or should we be thinking more of active & passive along with multiple working triangles.
