I didn't know Richard Dreyfuss was a designer... sorry I couldn't resist!

Very, very cool I must say. I've always been a big fan of design, especially when it goes way past functionality.

Having just bought a house built in 1920, we picked up one of these:

which is the antithesis of streamline.

The back of our house since it has a late 1950's, early 60's addition will be MCM but the rest of the house will be teens and twenties.

There's a book called, Great Inventions, Good Intentions: An Illustrated History of American Design Patents, that has all sorts of strange streamline patents in it, some used by the public and others so ridiculous as to be charming...
