What’s happening in this futuristic kitchen?

I stumbled upon this image recently and instantly loved it. Except, I have no idea what is going on. Can anyone help me out here?

I think it’s a kitchen – it has the right floor it, and has appliances which look like they might do kitcheny things. However, the large contraption in the middle of the room makes me think twice. And why is the lady sat down, browsing her vinyl record collection? I’m not sure about the perspective, but it looks like the electronics can be hidden behind a fetching red curtain too!

Please leave your thoughts in the comments section, I’m keen to hear what you think!
