Magicbox are proud to announce that the Colombo cordless telephone, from Chauhan Studios, has been awarded the prestigious iF product design award 2009 for its innovative and stylish design.
The Colombo Range includes all the features you could want on a domestic phone – on board answering machine, large phonebook for up to 100 contacts, hands free operation, power saving Eco Mode and a variety of polyphonic ring tones from which to choose.
The Colombo phone pays homage to the Italian designer, Joe Colombo who created his iconic ‘machines for living’ in the 1960s, this beautiful range of telephones is the perfect combination of form and function. The contours of the angled handset and the crystal clear inverse display make the Colombo a real pleasure to use as well as to look at. The first model in the range is available in a striking white or for the bold, a brilliant coral finish.
The iF product design award is one of the world’s key design competitions. Its significance is recognised throughout the world.
