This may be the future, but that last photo shows a kitchen pretty much like what's available at Builders Emporium. They should probably check out vintage Dick Tracy comic strips to see what Chester Gould had in mind 85 years ago.

State-of-the-market kitchen cabinetry is one thing; the point of the piece is the ceiling, which is said to be an example of "partnering with robots [in] letting the result of machine processes inform the design."

So, because the design and fabrication tools now available mean that we can revive l'art nouveau, does it follow that this is what we should do---decorate surfaces like mad ?
