It was above all the municipalities that began around 1924 to implement extensive housing programmes, which included among other things the optimisation of home furnishings. In this DHM blog Stefanie Müller writes about a classic of the times: the “Frankfurt kitchen” designed by Margarete Schütte-Lihotzky.
