Our furniture restorer Christian Dressen introduces the iconic Frankfurt kitchen from 1929, which was developed by the Viennese architect Margarethe Schütte-Lihotzky in 1926 as part of the public housing program “The New Frankfurt”.

It is a permanent loan from the AGB Frankfurt Holding.
GestalterKids@Home is aimed at children between five and ten years of age and in this issue deals with the culture of sitting.
