Dino got his first recipes from his mother as a way of easing his homesickness for his home city of Hanoi, which he left for his job. Not so long ago, the 29-year-old had an office job in marketing and, like many of us, was faced with the daily dilemma of what he should cook for dinner after work. Something tasty but quick and easy to make.

It all started with mum's recipes

It was when he was making these delicious Ngon recipes from his mum that he discovered his passion for cooking. He began sharing his dishes and how to prepare them on different social media channels. Dino now reaches over 1 million people with his home cooking. As a food blogger who regularly shares videos of recipes and how to cook them, the kitchen is the heart of Dino's home. When designing his new apartment, it was important to him that the kitchen should not only look good, but also be practical. He picked up ideas and tips in the Blum showroom in his new home of Ho Chi Minh City. Now he can enjoy cooking every day and pass on his passion to all of his social media viewers. Dino also loves tech, which is why his first apartment is a smart home.

Space for the camera and the provisions he needs

When filming his videos, Dino has to cook efficiently, which is why he and his kitchen planner carefully considered his workflows and ensured there would be plenty of storage space. The smart blogger also factored in space for his camera equipment as well as enough freedom of movement around the island kitchen. Dino needs enough storage space to cook his recipes and do his spontaneous shoots – the larder unit with LEGRABOX pull-outs enables access from all three sides and makes it easy to hold the right ingredients up to the camera in no time. Even when fully loaded – containing up to 70 kg of items – the inner pull-outs glide out of the unit. There's room for all his supplies inside.

Aiming high with smart solutions

Dino makes use of stay lift solutions and to ensure everything is in easy reach. The plinth solution is also installed in the bathroom and bedroom, giving Dino even more storage space. Background noise is an absolute no-no when Dino is shooting his videos, which is why all the lift systems, drawers and doors in his kitchen close softly and effortlessly – thanks to the BLUMOTION soft-close mechanism. His dog Moochie, who also often appears in Dino's stories, seems to be happy in the new kitchen.

Thanks to the SERVO-DRIVE electrical opening support system, the lift system in the wall cabinet opens with just a light touch on the front and closes conveniently by means of a SERVO-DRIVE switch.

All of the likeable Vietnamese native's wall cabinets make use of the AVENTOS lift system, meaning that everything is within easy reach and Dino can even leave the cabinets open while cooking.

If he needs something from the top shelf, Dino falls back on another clever solution: the SPACE STEP. The plinth step gives the influencer the boost in height he needs and ensures that he can reach everything with ease.

I was immediately blown away by the clever Blum solutions. I was particularly impressed by the motion technology and I still love it when my wall cabinets open automatically, or the drawers close so gently!
Style is important to the fashion lover, which is why Dino brought his minimalist kitchen to life with the SERVO-DRIVE electrical motion support system. No handles are necessary; a light touch is all that's needed and the drawers open by themselves. The elegant design of the LEGRABOX drawers reflects the modern look and provides plenty of space for Dino's utensils.
