MOMA Kitchenware Offering
Check out this pricey kitchen tools offering from the Museum of Modern Art:
Would you buy this?
They lost me at the red calfskin leather apron, sorry, but the boxwood-handled knife is sexy.
I REALLY want to go to a dinner where the host pulls out the $5,800 multi-level, designer "shoebox" full of these things. Sort of like the "executive toolbox", except for the arty.
I can usually depend on Kaleo to voice a suitably virtuous response but, hoo boy, am I glad that Kaleo was so politely ironic. This s**t annoys the h*** out of me which probably certifies that I am now a chronic old fart. Talk about ridiculous! This MOMA offering takes the proverbial cake. They couldn't invite me to that dinner.
I love the write-up on the Cast Iron pan:
"Cast Iron Pan
A German artist with a passion for cast iron makes these pans, each of which is a one-off and is close to being a work of art in its own right. Solid cast iron treated with linseed oil. 25 cm diameter, 2 liters. Made in Germany."
Ha ha: "close to being a work of art." How would it feel to be the craftsman who makes one-off's for MOMA to sell as part of a $6,000 kitchen kit and they describe your work as 'almost art.' Oh, the attitude!
On a slightly different note, that is a pretty sweet colander. Anyone know where to find something similar (thick, with riveted handles like that) for about 1/200 the price?
