I am not a fan of wires, especially in the kitchen.

All appliances are drawn to the areas in the kitchen where the outlets are.

In the age of wireless charging, I wanted to see if there was any form of wireless charging for high power electrical products (i.e kettle).

I discovered the Ki charging Standard that was created by the Wireless Power Consortium in 2019.

I knew this was the direction I wanted to head into, so I started working on creating a brandable wireless countertop.

Ki is powered by inductive power transfer from copper coils out of sight underneath the counter-top. 

Maintenance drawers holds all the electrical equipment and wires.

Is it easily accessible from the stainless steel panel
