Kitchen. Changes in space, design and applied art in Estonia

Kitchen. Changes in space, design and applied art in Estonia

The home kitchen has seen many significant changes over the last century. This exhibit looks at the development of the kitchen as a space, from the early 20th century to the present. In the first half of the 20th century, much attention was paid to efficiency and hygiene. Then as the role of women changed, so did the kitchen. Most recently, see changes from the minimalist Soviet kitchen to the modern open kitchen.
