Product Description

Counter Space: Design and the Modern Kitchen

Over the course of the past century, the kitchen, more than any other room in the modern dwelling, has been the focus of intensive aesthetic and technological innovation. Counter Space examines the twentieth-century transformation of the kitchen through the collection of The Museum of Modern Art, featuring a wide variety of design objects, architectural plans, posters, archival photographs, and artworks ranging from the iconic Frankfurt Kitchen, mass-produced for German public housing estates in the aftermath of World War I, to an electric tea kettle, heat-resistant glass wares, and colorful plastics such as Tupperware and Japanese artificial food. This volume is a lively exploration of the kitchen as a barometer of changing technology, aesthetics, and ideologies.
