DX: Uncrated Classic Plastics

“There’s a great future in plastics,” says Mr. McGuire to Benjamin Braddock in 1967’s The Graduate. Once deemed the miracle material, plastic revolutionized the design world with a process that paired style with function to create products that transformed the spaces where we live, eat, work and play. Classic Plastics rounds out Design Exchange’s massive display of furniture, housewares, electronics, and more to offer Torontonians an accessible, impressive, and never-before-seen experience of the Permanent Collection for free. On view until August 2016, Classic Plastics transports visitors to a post-WWII era where plastic furnishings and gadgets ruled the home. Step into a retro world filled with everything from original 1960 lollipop-shaped seating to Glenn Mofatt’s candy-coloured, all-plastic electric kettle; other-wordly looking Clairtone Stereo systems; groovy Glo-Up lamps and Willa Wong’s ‘90s-cool textured Melmac dinnerware – all classic, all plastic.
