In old times placing a phone call required a much more deeper link with the machine. In the case of rotary phones it even required to put your finger inside the holes of the dial wheel. With the touchscreens of nowadays smartphones -and even voice-dialing in some cases- the art of telephoning has come to a colder, feeling-less age. But what if we could combine the look and feel of vintage phones with the current telecommunication advances?
This project started when I acquired yet another piece of old technology, frozen witness of ages gone by: An old German post-telephone from the 80s.
