Re-imagining the Past

Hi, I am looking for examples where new products are inspired by old versions. I am not looking for retro products, but more products that are subtlety inspired by an design element or material from the old and put in a modern context.

Don’t you think that it might be hard to find one that wasn’t… ?

Nice one. Everything has been done already.

I understand that each product is influenced by it predecessors and you can always point something from all random objects. But in these two examples there was a large period of time the material has been replaced (metal for plastic/fabric mesh for perforated metal). And because they reinterpreted the forgotten material again, they stand out against all the current products on the market who switched. What I like about these two products is that they are nostalgic, but not lazy copy+paste designs. I am not looking for a random example, but more the inspirational ones :slight_smile:

Edit: I really find this smilie too creepy, he smiles way too much
