© National Geographic Society loaacnrome Dy lllarad t.Culver Glassmakers Designed This "Kitchen of Tomorrow" for the National GeographicSociety's Photographer Biggest space waste in homes is the dining room, used only an hour or so a day. Many families must forego servants. Hence this combination kitchen-dining alcove with glass-shelved, glass-paneled pantry between, reached from either side. A chicken roasts in a glass oven beside aglass stove. Glass table top folds against the glass walls to become a mural, so the alcove may be a solarium or playroom. Glass blocks, plate glass, food jars, curtains, stemware-all arerepresented inthis "dream kitchen" planned by the Libbey-Owens-Ford and the Owens-Illinois Glass Companies.
