They Don't Make Them Like They Used To...

They Don't Make Them Like They Used To...

It seems like no one uses the generations old marketing phrase "made to last" anymore. This is understandable for electronic or high technology goods; computers become all but unusable in a couple of years, cell phones are replaced almost every year. Other things on the other hand should not be disposable! Furniture should not fall apart within a few months...

Once upon a time, not only were things "made to last" but they were built as "works of art". The bench in the photograph is the marriage of the two. Compare it with the bench next to it.

I guess we're living in the age of low quality products; the age of Walmart and Ikea. Maybe people do not want to pay for "quality" any more? Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance is one of the first novels that deals with the concept of "quality" and is definitely an interesting read.
