Columbo by Magicbox

with 3 comments

Gorgeous retro style product design is the order of the day with the Columbo range of dect phones from Magicbox. “…a little bit Barbarella and a tad Austin Powers” (The Independent)  Yeah, baby! I couldn’t of summed it up better myself.

With Product Design by Chauhan Studio,  Columbo pays homage to  Italian designer Joe Colombo,  remember the Boby Trolley?

  1. Magicbox do some really cool stuff but this phone range does stand out and I can see it becoming a design classic in time.

  2. I love these phones- believe it or not Argos did/do something very similar, also in red. I think they perfectly solve the issue of standard ugly house phones! Definitely on my ” to buy” list! Great blog. Xxx Maddie

    • Yes I agree Maddie, there are very few home phones that I would give house room to. We actually have the version with the answerphone base unit, which in white is stunning. Thanks for your comment – Dave
