Antiques of the Future
by Lisa Roberts
Product designer Lisa Roberts showcases here the mass-produced objects she believes will be valuable in the future, once their production is discontinued. While many items are inexpensive, all are well made with "a strong and immediate visual appeal" like the streamlined Garbino trash can, available in biodegradable corn-based plastic for $7.50. Her idea that products should last -- and that consumers should want to keep them -- is an invaluable part of designing a sustainable future.
