Throwback Tuesday

KBIS—the Kitchen and Bath Industry Show—opened its doors today, showcasing what's new in appliances, fittings and fixtures, and cabinets. Because I'm in a contrary mood [and may be for the next four years], I'm featuring this ultra-retro-look, blued-brass cooktop. There are gas burners beneath those gleaming copper plates, which serve to moderate the heat distribution. The elemental aspect of the design is quite appealing to me.

[I promise to focus on new-school design tomorrow.]
