‘Museum of Pixelated Industrial Design’ Turns Iconic Objects into Low-Bit Pixel Renderings #ArtTuesday

Here’s an ongoing series by designer Jung Soo Park of iconic artifacts, industrial design objects, and BB-8 for good measure, rendered as low-res pixel art; the current feed can be found on his Instagram profile.

Sony Walkman TPS-L2, the compact cassette player which was first released in 1979, made personal portable music possible. Designed by Nobutoshi Kihara, the device was constructed with stamped aluminum sheets, as mass production with machining wasn't feasible at the time. Not just the Walkman itself, but Sony's super light headphones, MDR-3L2, also became a fashion and cultural icon, much like how Apple's white earbuds did decades later. ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ • ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ @sony #sony #walkman #japanesedesign #portable #music #headphones #idhistory #industrialdesign #product #design #productdesign #furnituredesign #ID #idsketching #illustration #pixelart #drawing #sketch #apple #ipod #픽셀아트 #그림 #스케치 #디자인 #산업디자인 #제품디자인 #가구디자인 #소니 #워크맨 #아이팟

The ET66 Braun calculator, designed by Dieter Rams in 1987, is an icon of modern design that reflects Rams' 10 Design Principles. It's a product with a simple interface, having its main focus on user's needs. The ET66 was used as an inspiration when Apple designed their own digital calculator app for the first iPhone. ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ • ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ @braun_beauty #ET66 #braun #calculator #DieterRams #Rams #calculator #modern #Apple #iPhone #designprinciples #idhistory #industrialdesign #product #design #productdesign #ID #idsketching #illustration #art #pixelart #drawing #sketch #그림 #스케치 #디자인 #산업디자인 #제품디자인 #가구디자인 #애플 #아이폰

For this project named Museum of Pixelated Industrial Design, Jung digitally paints each image pixel by pixel to create a fun and compelling composition. With little nuggets of information about the design he is referencing, the aim of the project is to promote learning about the history of industrial design to both designers and non-designers.
