The New Frankfurt Kitchen
Mac Adams

hello, hello! recently, we saw counter space: design + the modern kitchen on exhibit at the the museum of modern art and it was pretty cool. we loved all the kitchen-inspired art and gadgets, especially the frankfurt kitchen designed by margarete schütte-lihotzky for german public housing estates after world war 1. very small by today's standards at around 6' x 9', the kitchen incorporates wonderful space-saving features and feels very modern. some people thought it was cold, but i thought it was fabulous and will be putting it into my inspiration file for our own kitchen remodel, someday.

the photo by mac adams seems to have been taken with scott mind because he loves toast. each night he makes a couple of slices to take to work the next day, but the photo kind of makes me wonder what's really going on in the kitchen. although the tea cup is similar to one of mine, the girl is not similar to me, ever. but, i do love butter and as a kid remember taking a bite out of a stick of it - ewww! i suppose scott's the bread and i'm the butter. butter makes it better. mystery solved and i'll stop there. you're welcome ;).

xo, cindy

That's a cool photo! Did not notice anything at first, and then --Oooh! i don't think Scott would mind if you tried to recreate that. ;)
