Philco PC – Gorgeous retro PC

Image

This Philco PC harks back to the very stylish Philco Predicta TV from the 50’s, old pre-war typewriters and just a dash of steampunk. It’s just a concept at the moment, produced by SchultzeWorks Design. The design is being shopped around to manufacturers so maybe we’ll see these in the not too distant future.

The design of the “Philco PC” was inspired by the 1954 design classic Philco Predicta, as well as an eclectic mixture of modern minimalism, the steampunk movement, and antiques. As lead designer Dave Schultze explains, “The result is a design aesthetic that blends multiple elements of the familiar, but with some surprisingly fresh styling that just so happens to house a state-of-the-art Windows 7 PC.”
