As in the apartments in the Unités d’habitation, the open kitchen is U-shaped and inscribed in a tiny room module with sides measuring 226 cm.
In contrast with the Unités, however, this “cockpit for the housewife” is made entirely of chromium steel. Against the window is a round sink with a rectangular drip tray, and on the side toward the dining area there is a built-in cutting board, two burners, and a grill; both sections are without a substructure, seeming to float. Integrated into the red extractor hood is a frame for hanging glasses, reminiscent of a French bar. Ingenious accessories, such as the juicer built into a drawer, could have sprung straight from Jacques Tati’s imagination. All in all, this kitchen, built in Montreux—together with the dining area and the seating niche—calls to mind that the pavilion was based on a residence. However, its implementation was precisely coordinated with exhibition operations.
