Zette System from Love Hultén

Company: Love Hultén
Available: TBD
Price: TBD

Swedish industrial designer Love Hultén is reinforcing his reputation as a revisionist craftsman, with Zette System. The handcrafted creation is an all-in-one portable video gaming system. Equal parts nostalgia, beauty, and innovation, the system is made of wood and disguised as a 1980s boombox. It disassembles into everything players need for on-the-go gaming: two joypads, a console, speaker, and projector.

Players can upload as many as 10,000 games via the USB port. The Zette System offers two hours of wireless play when fully charged but can also be played while charging. The “Arcade Edition” version is slightly larger and includes joysticks for a traditional arcade experience.

Pricing and availability are yet to be announced. Hultén’s creations are very limited-edition and priced with that in mind. The Zette System will be a fascinating addition to any object d’art collection.

Take a weekly look at a modern-day thing with a nostalgic influence.
