Living in the kitchen


The kitchen is the room of rooms. We probably live more,

and more intensively, here than anywhere else in the home.

It is the place where we meet, where we encounter others.

As family or friends. As a couple. We cook, eat and enjoy ourselves

in the kitchen. And sometimes we have all the time in the world as we do so.

We argue. And make up again. We read, write, send emails, post messages.

And maybe philosophise a little. And – quite secretly – the kitchen

sets the rhythm of our day. Good morning. Then midday. Then evening.

And sometimes night…

Which is why we love the kitchen.
