Twentieth-Century Kitchen Tour

Next week, an exhibit opens at MoMA that should prove to be a treat. 'Counter Space: Design and the Modern Kitchen' traces the evolution of the kitchen from home economics laboratory to the social and recreational space we know today. Among the items on display are a couple full-scale installations, including the Frankfurt Kitchen shown here. Created in 1926 by architect Grete Schütte-Lihotzky, with its emphasis on efficiency it was a turning point in the design of the domestic environment.

The press preview is on Tuesday, and I'll post some thoughts on the show afterwards. moma.org

  2. Not too shabby for a design that's more than 80 year old!
    Thanks for your comments, dkc.
