Apple: cinema for the desktop

Monday, 4 July 2005

Cinema for the desktop – of frames and forms. Suddenly it was everywhere. In the 1990s, the translucent and colourful iMac integrated the screen in a compact and organically designed casing. This was definitely no novelty for Apple design, but it once again demonstrated that a computer is not necessarily defined by any known form – its design can be freely interpreted and can change completely from one day to the next. The Apple Cinema Display line consists of a 20-inch display, a 23-inch high-definition display and a very large 30- inch high-definition display. Their design matches the anodised aluminium casings of the Power Mac and the PowerBook.


Ross Lovegrove on the design of the Monaco V4

Monday, 4 July 2005

A personification of the mechanical movement – a designed timepiece. Worn by the actor Steve McQueen it shaped the look of the 1970s. The chronograph with the big squared-off case and the mystic name “Monaco” stood out. It was synonymous with a style, which was immortalised by Steve McQueen in the 1970s – unconventional and faithful. And what was unknown to most of its admirers: it was the world’s first waterresistant automatic chronograph equipped with a micro-rotor mechanism. The concept watch MONACO V4 continues to act on a maxim of the unconventional and again acts as a guarantor for revolutionary innovations breaking the foundations of traditional watch making aesthetics.
