The designers of this model room wanted to have past, present, and future blend in this formal Japanese garden-kitchen.

This kitchen was on display at the 1964 World’s Fair, in General Motors’ Futurama Building.

Materials in natural shapes, colors, and textures dramatically isolated each detail. In particular, note the bamboo ceiling, with the sticks that fanned out from the paper globe light fixture at the center of the room.

The upper shelf on the right was used to display Japanese dolls in small glass cases, and the yellow background looked extra bright with the lighting from below.

The 1960s appliances appeared alongside contrasting design motifs — helping to frame the paneling, ceramic tile, and hand-tooled wood.

While countertop space appeared to be limited, this was a kitchen created mainly to inspire ideas and to demonstrate the versatility of that fabulously now-retro stove and oven with the glass pull-up door.
