Durability should be the key word. Out and done with cheap and disposables. In the long run we pay more for cheap qualities.
The Kitchen’s Future
In 1957 Disneyland asked MIT and the Monsanto’s Corporation to conjure up a “House of Future.” The mushroom-shaped dwelling that resulted was located on the park grounds next to Sleeping Beauty’s Castle and was made of (what they called) “advanced” plastics. Everything was created from colorful, functional, and “futuristic” plastic—right down to the dishes. The kitchen promoted convenience and ease, and it dazzled visitors with “polarized” plastic light-filled ceiling panels, a dishwasher that used “ultrasonic” waves as its cleaning agent, and “cold domes” (one which irradiated foods) that lowered from upper cabinets with a push of a button. The range was a “speedy” microwave that rose from the counter. And floors were “easy to clean” vinyl.
