forms of the past but combines them
in a way that could never have oc-
curred historically.
"This mixture means we don't
really want the past," she said. "We
just want its veneer, the emotional
appeal of something that we think
was better."
High points of the 1980s, accord-
ing to designers surveyed, were such
design-intensive products as profes-
sional quality cookware and home
accessories from architects. A teapot
by postmodernist architect Michael
Graves is one example.
The designers were also im-
pressed by the influence of
ergonomics in furniture, as
represented by the high-tech office
chairs that sell for as much as $800.
On the other hand, a number of
designers singled out Post-it notes
and the Dust Buster vacuum, both
inexpensive innovations.
Other bright spots are halogen
lamps, and new light bulb cooktops
with ceramic and halogen burners
were also hailed.
Kitchens are more attractive to-
day compared to the 1970s because
of the coordination of design details
on appliances and the much greater
variety and good quality of cab-
inetry. They are more efficient
because of improved storage options.
"The designer whom many peo-
ple singled out was Phillipe Starck,"
said Szenasy. "They are betting that
in the future, people will see Starck
as synonymous with the '80s."
Furniture that appealed to the
designers includes the revival of the
arts and crafts design, rustic Adiron-
dack styles and the 1950s designs
from the likes of Charles Eames.
Designers think that the 1990s
will be the decade of environmental
concerns.
"Almost everyone made some
comment about the environment,"
Szenasy said.
A significant comment, for ex-
ample, was Agnes Bourne's: "In the
'70s, I was very involved with re-
cycling and natural foods. I even got
arrested for my beliefs. I'm not so
militant anymore, but I still have
those concerns. One of the tiny
things I'm doing is management."
