ScandiPhone & Princess Phone

scandi-phone-orangeThe ScandiPhone is based on the unique upright phone that was introduced in Europe in the mid 1950s. 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 and in 1973 the phone was selected to be part of the New York Museum of Modern Arts collection in recognition of its significance as a piece of good design in the 20th century.

It’s little and it’s lovely and you might remember the Princess Phone in your sister’s bedroom or on your mother’s desk. The Princess Phone was introduced in 1959 in response to a rapidly changing world where people wanted convenience and more than just a main phone in the hallway.

The Princess Phone was designed by Henry Dreyfuss, the prolific industrial designer. The Princess is compact, attractive and was originally available in a variety of pastel colours. With its rounded edges, sleek lines and fashionable styling it quickly become a household favourite and is just as popular today.

Wild and Wolf have re-introduced both the ScandiPhone  and the Princess Phone, retails at £39.95 and £49.95 from Bloomsbury Store.

One thought on “ScandiPhone & Princess Phone”

  1. Apart from the great look of the Scandiphone, it’s terribly practical in a dusty environment because it’s buttons are placed below. Had to buy one for our place – it’s a pity I wasn’t more adventurous and only bought the black version rather than the sexier red.
