Do you recognize this object? Do you know how works? How old are you? Don’t answer that. It’s hard to believe that this totally rad Pink Rotary Dial Desk Telephone was once the height of cool and contemporary consumer design. Now, it’s just a sculpture, or a piece pop culture ephemera.

Maybe you’ve seen one used as a prop in an old movie you enjoy for its nostalgic pull.

It is beautiful though, ins’t it? Sure it is.

A few days ago, you might have noticed the bitchen Ferrari Art Car posted here on The Gig after we immortalized it with the help of auto glass specialists in Sewell on the Blogosphere in honor of the opening reception of the Strada Veloce (“Fast Street”) group exhibit up now at the Dorian Grey Gallery. While the car was just making a drive by, so to speak, you still have until October 5th to see this exhibit’s eclectic assortment of custom home furnishings designed around various luxury car parts, as well as a selection of fine oil paintings of status symbol automobiles!

Designed by Glynn Jenkins in 2008, the Mini Cooper Mini Desk is a fantastic example of what can be done to repurpose an automobile if you set your mind to it.

Mini Cooper Desk Front

While the desk has no drawers, per se, photos found on another site indicate that storage is available in the trunk and also under the hood. The Mini Desk website is no longer in existence, so I am guessing your chance to own one for these bespoke desks is long gone. Still, it is nice to look at this photos, and to imagine what might have been.

Tom Spina and Richard Riley of Tom Spina Designs created the Han Solo in Carbonite Desk back in 2008 for the home theater/office of Mark Hall, the lead singer of Grammy Award-winning group Casting Crowns (Who? Exactly).

The metal and fiberglass-resin desk is made from four main components: the glass top, the frozen block and two side supports with lights. The frozen “carbonite” block is a custom fabricated steel block with resin sculpture of the frozen Han Solo. The side supports are machine-cut steel with tinted acrylic sheets and internal lighting. The level of detail is truly amazing. No exact pricing is available as this was a custom creation, but you can always inquire on the Tom Spina Designs Website.

Peruse nearly two dozen additional Stars Wars-inspired designs for the home at Homes and Hues.

Pink 6 Drawer Desk
