Wayback Machine 1958: The Future of Glass


Philip Johnson's Glass House

Here is an interesting prediction of the future from Smith Rairdon, director of marketing for Owens-Illinois Glass Company, about the future of glass, made in 1958:

"In the year 2008 a bride will be carried over the threshold of a glass house. Her kitchen may be glass-walled with a glass refrigerator, glass chairs, shelves and cabinets.

"She'll cook with throwaway glass containers which she plucks from the supermarket shelves, uses as cooking utensils in an electronic oven and then places on a dining table as serving dishes." ::Paleo-Future
