The Cold War. Racial Discrimination. Poodle skirts.
There are some things about the 1950s we wouldn’t want to bring back.
But the Dreyfuss 500 Desk Phone? Yes ma’am! This funky phonicular item of design exemplifies everything that was cool about the 1950s. You see, mobile phones may be convenient, but they have none of the panache and style of this design classic.
Originally designed by the firm of industrial designer Henry Dreyfuss and introduced in 1949 in basic ‘Bell Black’, the phone was then reintroduced in 1954 in a variety of shades. This enormously popular design soon became the most commonly used phone in the United States – and still is!
