The R-KAID-R Game Console Blurs the Lines Between Past and Present

The R-Kaid-R game console is described as "a reaction to the contemporary electronics industry, where products are adapted to economic efficiency and throwaway excess." Inspired by nostalgic machinery and electronics, Swedish designer and craftsman Love Hultén creates this elegant and practical gaming accessory.

The designer works with quality wood and metal materials that will transform and develop a patina with age. His game console design rejects the throw-away aesthetic of modern systems and is available in a range of different material concepts that include dark walnut, dark emerald green maple and other natural woods that have been combined with brass materials.

When you are not using the R-KAID-R, the machine is boxed up and easily stored. When opened, the system is a usable gaming console but resembles a decorative wooden box when closed to conceal its interior elements.
