PLASTIC HOME (Apr, 1946)
HERE is the “Plexiglas Dream Suite,” designed to show peace-time uses for the clear plastic which has done such an efficient job decorating the noses and turrets of our fighting planes. The rooms are small in size for efficient air conditioning, but do away with that “closed in” feeling by the use of sweeping plastic walls with draw curtains for privacy. The four-color murals have a three-dimensional effect, achieved by superimposing four sheets of Plexiglas etched in separate colors and design elements. Bookshelves supply just enough indirect illumination. Drawers and shelves have plastic accessories.
