I never thought I’d say this but… I think I want a landline! I have the Dreyfuss phone to thank for this newfound appreciation. This retro-futuristic phone concept marries the iconic form of the classic telephone with a minimalistic, modern form and material combination.
Specifically, the design is a nod to Henry Dreyfuss, a legendary 20th Century industrial designer. The 1937 Bell 302 telephone happens to be one of his most famous work and serves as an inspiration for this project. Like the classic, the Dreyfuss phone sports a number dial at the center, however, it’s actually a touchscreen with a digital display. While it has a similar footprint to the classic form, the open body allows for additional storage behind it and hides any wiring quite nicely.
