LOVE HULTÉN’S “GOLDEN APPLE” COMBINES NOSTALGIA & MODERN TECHNOLOGY
Though we’ve covered Swedish designer Love Hultén‘s nostalgia rich, arcade inspired objects before, we thought his newest creation deserved another look. Dubbed “Golden Apple,” the walnut wood recreation of Apple’s 1984 Macintosh computer comes complete with a golden keyboard and subtle gold details. The functional and stunningly accurate mini comp also features a disc drive and wooden mouse.
Gothenburg-based Hultén is known for turning to the past for design inspiration. Yet even still, he manages to infuse all he creates with a wonderful sense of timeliness and modernity.
