It's a Herman Miller vintage clock and you can get it from MOMA online store.

The cabinets are laminate cabinets that the contractor made and I believe the hood is a Broan.

Carolina V. Gentry, RID
it looks very similar to the container store elf a storage system carts. It can be built to your liking by selecting different colors and parts.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

The galley kitchen functioned just fine for the client, it just needed an update, as it was all about linoleum and a gargantuan '80s microwave. Kristen refurbished it with new appliances and cabinets, and says “I felt that Carrera marble reflected modern times...but the original cooktop was so cool that we had to keep it.” Cabinets stretch all the way to the ceiling to maximize storage. The iconic Starburst clock by George Nelson is another piece featured in MoMA’s collection.
As you can see, this door allows the hallway to borrow light from the kitchen, but when closed it keeps the cooking smells from the rest of the apartment.
Becky Harris added this to Modern Icons: George Nelson Clocks
This apartment is next door to The Museum of Modern Art, and the Starburst Clock was a choice from the MoMA's archives. The color of the wood works with the beautiful Asian-inspired wood and translucent glass door.
Scheer & Co. added this to Create a Stellar Studio Apartment
Mobile furniture is essential for a studio. Since everything needs to be multi-functional, pieces that can move around easily are a bonus. This little cart is great for kitchen prep and storage, but can also be wheeled into another area for use as a serving table or drink stand.
Tip: Roll with it A rolling cart is the small kitchen's bff. Wheel it out when you need some more counter space, slide it to the side when you don't.
Becky Harris added this to New Classics: Glo-Ball Lights
The Suspended Glo-Ball is the first light that fooled me. Perhaps because it first caught my eye in this New York City apartment that is filled with midcentury icons culled from MoMA's archives.
Accessorize your kitchen cart. Open shelving that houses purely functional items can benefit from good-looking containers. Try open bins for napkins and small tools, and a wide basket for sheet pans and cutting boards.
Lisa Frederick added this to 8 Kitchen Organizing Ideas for Messy Cooks
8. Slip in a portable island. As in my case, messy cooks often lack enough counter space for spreading out. A small island on casters can be amazingly effective at extending the work area. Why haven't I tried this yet?More: Kitchen Storage Goes on a Roll
Christine Tusher added this to 8 Savvy Ideas for Kitchen Carts
6. Let it roam. Inexpensive pieces like this one provide the perfect solution for a small or pantry-less kitchen. Its small size allows it to be tucked neatly into a corner nook or closet, while tiered shelving maximizes storage space. When it’s time to designate a sous-chef, roll it out to create extra prep space.
