Alongside the permanent collection there are special initiatives, thanks to the flexibility of the spaces, such as temporary exhibitions ranging from design to architecture, from photography to art, with the creation of a series of events linked to the Museum.
Almost 100 years have passed since the modular kitchen was invented in Frankfurt in 1926, designed by Margarete Schütte-Lihotzky, the Austrian architect who created the Frankfurt Kitchen. Her inspiration? The kitchens of railway carriages: small, efficient and functional. The beating heart of the perfect machine for living, the home, has had a "queen" of the hearth for years. Mothers, grandmothers, aunts, cooks, women in the kitchen. Then came the emancipation movements, parity and equality, the same rights and duties. Today, home and kitchen are the realm of the family, the lounge for friends, the comfort of singles.
“Lady Kitchen” is a video installation created for the Molteni Museum, which traces the evolution of the kitchen from the post-war period to the present day, emphasising some of its myths in an ironic way. From the first "modern" appliances - more efficient fridges, gas and electric ovens, washing machines and dishwashers, that advertisements and TV commercials presented as a big step towards freedom - to the most sophisticated domestic robots.
Dada, which has been producing quality modular kitchens since the 1950s and has been part of the Molteni Group since 1979, has always been a leading player in the evolution of the kitchen.
Innovative solutions featuring a rigorous and contemporary design with new materials and technologies have made it possible to satisfy all those who love to live their kitchens in harmony with their lifestyle. Today, thanks to Dada's custom solutions, everyone has the possibility of creating their own kitchen according to personal style and needs.
"Lady Kitchen", the kitchen is now the queen of the home.
