oslo-based advertising creatives jason kinsella and charlotte bakken have recreated a scale model of the 1984 classic, the apple macintosh. the computer replica was constructed using pieces of LEGO with a few simple adjustments, enabling the technology icon to incorporate an apple iPad in its design. the project references how a brand is sometimes able to move in a full circle, the reproduction functions as a place to dock the iPad, read the newspaper, or watch a film.

 

kinsella and bakken’s sculptural reconstruction isn’t the first reinterpretation of apple’s early version of a desktop. creative chris mcveigh also built an original macintosh made of LEGO which designboom published here
