Future Forms is an online directory of Space Age consumer electronics.
Is that a radio?
Future Forms is a personal side project that grew out of my love for space age industrial design.
I wanted to create a place where people could learn about the designs of the late 60s and early 70s that influence many products out there on the market today. The space race was a time of optimism and forward thinking and that mentality is captured in many of these products.
I photograph, research and create a forum for each object – and then waste too much time trying to track down the manual for those who like to tinker.
The site was picked up by kottke.org and traffic has been great ever since.
