A cherished friend from Los Angeles was in town for an extended weekend of cultural immersion. Museums, the opera, and a selective tour of sites and buildings kept us hopping around NYC. Our guest being an architect, there was a significant amount of shop talk—and sketching—that took place, too. With its witty inclusion of blueprint symbols in its design, this kitchen [which, for the record, our visitor would be quick to dismiss] reminds inhabitants as well as viewers of the process behind the product.
