The conventional kitchen positions the cook towards the wall and away from those he may be entertaining. It creates a sense of loneliness and disconnect--as if he is on an island by himself, if you will. With a kitchen island, this problem is solved when the "community" is brought into the realm of the kitchen where guests are able to bear witness to how the glorious cook works his magic. Now unattached from the counter, the kitchen island permits access from all sides so the kitchen is now a place for friends and family to gather, share and commune. Cooking, which has historically been a solitary activity, will instead be transformed into a time of socializing in addition to accomplishing the gastronomical activities at hand.
