While Love Hultén’s retro-futuristic wooden machines are inspired by past gadgets, they usually still end up being distinct and fresh. But for one of his recent projects, Love opted to make a straight up replica of a classic computer.
Love’s The Golden Apple is a life-size replica of Apple’s original Macintosh 128K. Inside the American walnut body is a Mac Mini, and a DVD drive resides in place of the floppy drive. Love also made a matching wooden wireless mouse and a wooden keyboard with gold-plated keycaps.
I don’t know if Love is selling The Golden Apple, but he did say it’s a one-off. He should at least make more of that cool mouse.
