Things to do in Berlin: go to the Museum of Things

On the to do list for my next visit to Berlin (which may not be for some time…*), the Museum of Things. See this link from the museum’s website on current exhibits (and this from the Guardian). The museum has recently added the Frankfurt Kitchen, a 1920s prototype of the modern kitchens with which we are familiar today. Reading about the Frankfurt Kitchen reminded me of an exhibition that I went to see on Charlotte Perriand (Design Museum profile), who was designing in the 30s the sorts of furniture that you’d recongise in Ikea today. From furniture design and architecture to music, I am always surprised just how old ‘modern’ is.

*maybe in the meantime I should make the time to go to the Design Museum, London.

  1. I absolutely love this place, if I could run my own museum I would probably just copy it! For some pics of it have a look at my blog post…
