dc.description.abstractThis study demonstrates the paradoxical cycle of modern life, which has simultaneously obliged to standardize the objects and individualize subjects. Under the impact of mechanistic look, conceptions of mobility and modularity emerge as affixed part of this paradoxical cycle.In the context of standardization and individualism, this study focuses on the birth of modern kitchen conceptions relating to the standardization of modern housing and the work process. Then the study addresses the transformation process of modern kitchen from stable architectural space into independent standardized mobile furniture. Thus, it gains great capacity by being in motion and possibility to separate itself from home and its context in order to encounter the sense of freedom, changeability and individuality. This study also focuses on modularized kitchen, which is standardized as much as it is divided into parts enriched by various sliding, rotating, folding and joining elements. So, the mobility has emerged as a conception that increased the possibilities of variations and changeability of modularized kitchen. Consequently, each moveable component has prepared the conditions of kitchen-in-motion that look for new directions towards transformable kitchen design.en
