LDK

戦前、日本の食事風景といえば、自分の膳を持ち寄って食事をしていた。
膳を片付ければ寝室となり、布団を片付ければ居間となる。
しかし、ちゃぶ台の登場により、家族はひとつの卓上で同じ料理を食べるようになった。
戦後の欧米化の中で座卓からテーブルへと変わり、食堂の必要性も出てきた。
結果、食堂、台所をDKと表記し、居間をくっつけLDKへと進化していった。
憧れの個室が手に入った代わりに、家族の団らん、空間のフレキシビリティも薄れていった。
その揺り戻しが意識に生まれつつあるようだ。
 
LDK [ Sep 10 2009 by SF ]
 
Before the World War 2nd, talking of how we took meals in Japan, each of us dined separately on a small table brought by each.
After we removed these tables, the room became a space for sleeping, and after removed each bed, the space became a living room.
However, by the appearance of other small dining table "chabu-dai", family -people now came to eat same food on one table together.
Later, during the time of changing to American and European culture  after the war, a small table with which people had dined by sitting on a floor have changed to a large dining table which now requires the dining room.
As the result, in Japan, dining room and kitchen became to be indicated as DK, and then, the indication now has been progressed to LDK including living room.
Instead of gaining a private room which people have been longing for, the pleasure of getting-together of a family and the flexibility of a space have been gradually faded out.
It seems that a swing-back is now emerged in people's consciousness.
