Dave Schultz of SchultzeWORKs calls it ‘fusion style.’ I call it genius. He designed the Philco PC to look like it belonged in an office in 1957.
This is the most desirable-looking desktop I’ve seen since Apple came out with the iMac. Complete with a manual typewriter-style keyboard, a Philco TV-type monitor, and tiny tasteful hints of steampunk, this adorable mid-century modern machine would be a great addition to any style-maven’s office.
Unfortunately, like a number of my posts lately, this glorious creation is only a design and hasn’t actually been made yet, damnit. When I realized that, I went looking for something equally stylish and fab that exists in the physical world. I found a few interesting things which can be purchased, but not very many. I was losing hope.
Just as I was about to scrap this post and start over, I came across the computer designs of Jeffrey Stephenson. He takes high-end computer parts and encloses them in the most gorgeous, the most stylish cases you’ve ever seen. I want one of everything! He builds these wonderful machines as competition entries, and according to his brag sheet, he wins a lot! When you look at the pictures of his work below, it will become immediately apparent why.
