Ode to the Cup Holder
The Big Money, 28 June 2009.

Abstract/Summary

It changed our relationship with car interiors and forced manufacturers to innovate.

The cup holder, in its modern automotive incarnation, is about 30 years old. It merits its own Wikipedia entry, which claims it was invented in 1943 by somebody named James Guillow. Well, who knows, really? However, the cup holder as we know it achieved industrial-design celebrity status in the 1980s, and it’s been proliferating ever since.
