Many of us have seen movies or read stories of rooms with secret exits or storage places and have secretly dreamed of having just such a place … But hardly imagined it to be practically possible!

Some have looked at an awkward space and wished for a cupboard that could close up the area, but still, move out of the way to provide access to space… But have not really considered it as a reality!

To these wonderful dreamers and visionaries, we present our SWINGAWAY units!

We can make you a bookshelf, display unit or cupboard that swings completely or in part away to reveal a secret room, doorway or storage space. Our units are designed to appear as complete integral units, with the swingaway sections locked securely with a remote activated electronic lock.

Upon activation of the remote, the swingaway section is released and the unit can be manually opened to gain access to whatever is behind. The swinging unit operates on a free-swinging steel frame that leaves no tell-tale marks on the floor or roof and gives wide access to your secret space.

Yuppiechef was founded in 2006 by two good friends and only thirty-two products in a lounge in Plumstead, Cape Town. More than a decade later, our simple goal remains: To offer you the best kitchen and home products—and to be the very best at doing it.

Yuppiechef emerged out of co-founder Shane Dryden's love for cooking and cool kitchen tools. Way back then the world was getting hooked on Jamie Oliver and the Masterchef television series; we were all learning the difference between ceviche and sous-vide, and we struggled to pronounce "quinoa." Every kitchen was fast becoming 'open-plan' and cooking was finally something for the whole family to enjoy. New Yorker magazine even made the bold statement that, "the kitchen was the man’s new shed."

We launched Yuppiechef to join in this revolution and to make available, for the first time in South Africa, the products and brands that people were seeing on television, but couldn’t always easily get hold of.

We wanted to empower our customers to feel that even if all they could successfully make in their kitchen was a tomato sandwich, at least they could enjoy preparing it with a decent German knife, and serving it proudly on an on-trend slate board. Tools and ingredients don’t turn ordinary people into a Gordon Ramsay, but they can certainly inspire and motivate us to cook and share meals together—and that has always been our ultimate mission as a company.

Today, Yuppiechef is South Africa's premier kitchen and homeware store, stocking 700 of the world's leading brands. From knives, cookware and appliances - to soft furnishings, craft spirits and the finest food ingredients; we've tried, tested and sourced the best quality products we can find, for you—people who really care about cooking, entertaining and hosting at home.
