  • Keukens - Naked Dutch Kitchens...

    Few 'real' kitchens resemble the serene, carefully styled examples of advertisements and brochures. The kitchen is, for most of us a practical place, a workshop where the visual jumble of mismatched 'tools' and consumables are concealed behind a calming facade of doors and drawers.

    Amsterdam-based photographer Erik Klein Wolterinks has gone behind this dignified facade to the reveal the hidden contents of his neighbours' kitchens.

    Erik's mosaic-like compositions give us an unusual insight into the lives of his variously rich, poor and multicultural subjects.

    Whatever happened to pine cladding, Swiss Cheese Plants, primary colours, radiused – corners, non - ironic beards..? The lost world of optimistic 1970s DIY: countless books and magazines showed the ‘hands on’ way to a bright, progressive future. Lost, now to the disposable flat – pack and a popular cultural retreat to familiar forms.

    Many of these quite challenging techniques have now been replaced by modern jointing tools but how many of the end results would really resemble the illustrations? How long would they have withstood the assaults of their dungaree – clad, mop – haired offspring.

    HRH Prince Charles meets the directors of British Standard at the Ideal Home Show

    (This is not a caption competition)

    A suitable and topical subject with which to launch our new journal – The visit of HRH Prince Charles to the British Standard display at the Ideal Home Show. Suitable, because the idea for our new range originated with a question of HRH’s when he inspected the Plain English kitchen installed in his ‘Natural House’ project the previous year: “How can we get this to the people..?” – The ‘no frills’ British Standard kitchen was born.

    HRH seemed to enjoy his visit to the stand, relieved, perhaps to find something at the show that wasn’t made of plastic.

    By coincidence, an adjacent stand had this ‘lookalike’ of the Queen to promote its bidet loos – they did not meet.
