ScandiPhone Replica, Black

10 Nov

This isn’t a microphone or a radio, and it isn’t even original, but hey, it’s pretty darn cool.  And it’s It recently sold on eBay for $29.  According to the box, “The ScandiPhone is based on the unique upright phone that was introduced in Europe in the mid 1950’s.  Smaller and lighter than anything available at the time, its unusual one piece design was a fine example of form and function in harmony.  The push button version was introduced in 1967.  In 1973 the phone was selected to be a part of the New York Museum of Modern Art’s Collection, in recognition of its significance as a piece of good design in the 20th Century.”  It makes the perfect hipster accessory, or perhaps geek handset mod for a desk phone at work.
