The episode that aired on Wednesday, October 6, was dedicated to modern kitchens and kitchen organization, and Juliet starred in a seven-minute segment to discuss the exhibition, with a focus on the <a href="http://www.moma.org/interactives/exhibitions/2010/counter_space/the_frankfurt_kitchen" target="_blank">Frankfurt Kitchen</a>. You can <a href="http://www.marthastewart.com/article/the-moma-modern-kitchen" target="_blank">watch the video</a> on Martha&#8217;s website, and <a href="http://www.observer.com/2010/culture/martha-moma">read her review</a> of the show in the <em>Observer</em>. <span id="more-9584"></span>We took along several objects from the exhibition, including the <a href="http://www.moma.org/collection/object.php?object_id=4254" target="_blank">Ice Cream Scoop </a>(1935), Lurelle Guild&#8217;s <a href="http://www.moma.org/collection/browse_results.php?criteria=O%3AAD%3AE%3A2402&amp;page_number=1&amp;template_id=1&amp;sort_order=1" target="_blank">Tea Kettle</a> (1932–33), the <a href="http://www.moma.org/collection/browse_results.php?criteria=O%3AAD%3AE%3A5225&amp;page_number=2&amp;template_id=1&amp;sort_order=1" target="_blank">Chemex Coffee Maker </a>(1941), and the Corning glass <a href="http://www.moma.org/collection/object.php?object_id=1993" target="_blank">Frying Pan</a> (c. 1942).</p> <p>While we were at it, we took the opportunity to showcase a 1963 <a href="http://www.boffi.com/minikitchen_eng.pdf" target="_blank">minikitchen</a> by the famous Italian designer <a href="http://www.moma.org/collection/browse_results.php?artistFilterInitial=&amp;criteria=O%3AAD%3AE%3A1196&amp;page_number=1&amp;template_id=10&amp;sort_order=1" target="_blank">Joe Colombo</a>, a piece which we were unfortunately not able to fit in the exhibition. This mobile kitchen unit (mostly plywood with varnished coniferous-wood veneer, aluminum, steel, plastic, laminate, and electrical components) was manufactured by Boffi and recently reissued. “Things have to be flexible,” said Colombo in 1966. “My kitchen can be moved around or out of a room and when you are finished with it, it closes up like a box.” The minikitchen includes two burners, refrigerator, cutting board, electrical outlets for small appliances, and multipurpose storage compartments.</p> <p>Another update for your attention: we are still adding material to the other parts of the <em>Counter Space </em>website. Try revisiting <a href="http://www.moma.org/interactives/exhibitions/2010/counter_space/kitchen_sink_dramas" target="_blank">Kitchen Sink Dramas</a>, where you&#8217;ll now find excerpts from three very different kitchen-related video works by women artists from the U.S., Japan, and Mexico: <em>Semiotics of the Kitchen</em> (1975), <em>HIDEO, It&#8217;s Me Mama</em> (1983), and <em>Devil in the Flesh</em> (1998). These works are in the MoMA collection and are on view in their entirety in the exhibition.</p> <div class="clear"></div> </div> <!--googleoff: index--> <p class="sub-nav"> <span class="blog-tags featured-tags"> Tags: <span class="all-tags"> <a href="/explore/inside_out/tag/modern-women" title="Posts tagged Modern Women (29)">Modern Women</a>, <a href="/explore/inside_out/tag/counter-space-design-and-the-modern-kitchen" title="Posts tagged Counter Space: Design and the Modern Kitchen (20)">Counter Space: Design and the Modern Kitchen</a>, <a href="/explore/inside_out/tag/joe-colombo" title="Posts tagged Joe Colombo (1)">Joe Colombo</a>, <a href="/explore/inside_out/tag/martha-stewart" title="Posts tagged Martha Stewart (1)">Martha Stewart</a> </span> <span class="featured-tags"> <a href="/explore/inside_out/tag/modern-women" title="Posts tagged Modern Women (29)">Modern Women</a>, <a href="/explore/inside_out/tag/counter-space-design-and-the-modern-kitchen" title="Posts tagged Counter Space: Design and the Modern Kitchen (20)">Counter Space: Design and the Modern Kitchen</a>, <a href="/explore/inside_out/tag/joe-colombo" title="Posts tagged Joe Colombo (1)">Joe Colombo</a> </span> <small><a href="#" class="show-all-tags">More</a></small> </span> </p> <div id="comments"> <a name="comments"></a> <form id="commentform" method="post" action="http://moma.org/wp/inside_out/api?json=submit_comment" class="JS_CommentForm"> <input type="hidden" name="post_id" value="9584" /> <input type="hidden" name="redirect" value="https://www.moma.org/interactives/exhibitions/2010/counter_space/blog/juliet-kinchen-on-the-martha-stewart-show-its-a-good-thing#commentform" /> <h2>Leave a Comment</h2> <div id="add-comment" class="comment"> <div class="response hidden"></div> <div class="required float-right">* required information</div> <div class="name">Name<span class="red-type">*</span></div> <input name="name" type="text" size="22" id="name" value="" /> <br class="clear" /> <div class="name">E-mail address<span class="red-type">*</span></div> <input name="email" type="text" size="22" id="email" value="" /> <br class="clear" /> <!-- <div class="name">Follow up</div> <input name="" id="subscribe" type="checkbox" tabindex="5" /> <label for="subscribe">Notify me of further comments on this post</label> <br class="clear" />--> <div class="name">Your comments<span class="red-type">*</span></div> <textarea name="content" rows="7" cols="50" id="content"></textarea> <br class="clear" /> <div id="captcha"> <input name="captcha_challenge" type="hidden" value="97225" /> <div class="name">Spam check<span class="red-type">*</span></div> <div class="input"> <img alt="Cri_137683" longdesc="&lt;a href=&quot;http://moma.org/collection/browse_results.php?object_id=97225&quot;&gt;&lt;i&gt;City&lt;/i&gt;&lt;/a&gt;. 1971.
