The Quartz Tele by Tao Ma

Home Appliances


Tao Ma is going away from the flat panel, the sheer lightweight plasticity, and into heft, weightiness, a thunkiness that Parmenidies himself would find convincing, with the Quartz Tele. Each number has an enormous coloured quartz crystal with an LED to illuminate the proceedings “like a Transformer’s energon cube”. A more conventional screen in the base contains information like caller ID, a calendar, and other more prosaic bits of actual data. Pretty as this may be, I’m already hearing my cat knock the crystals out at 4am. [GT]
