Oricom Colombo One Cordless Phone
Oricom is set to make communication a 'beautiful thing' this Christmas with its release of the stylish Colombo One cordless phone.
Colombo One was created by former Nokia senior designer Tej Chauhan of ChauhanStudio in London.As the name suggests, it was inspired by the work of legendary, forward-thinking Italian designer Joe Colombo.
That means a space age look for the home phone, reminiscent of the early Ericofon models of the 50s and 60s, while keeping all the functionality required in the modern day - a full keyboard and digital screen - as well as the classic handset shape.
The unique ergonomic shape combined with its retro futuristic design and smooth body in a matt finish makes the Colombo One cordless phone instantly appealing. Going beyond pure aesthetics, ChauhanStudio's intention is to re-establish that classic relationship between the user and the phone in a way that prioritises comfort.
The philosophy is closely aligned with Oricom, who seek "real connections in every device we release", explains Managing Director Kevin McDonnell.
"I think people get caught up in wiz-gimmickry, forgetting that the real purpose of a phone is to stay in contact with family and friends, especially over the Christmas period.
"With Colombo One discriminating home owners can enjoy a perfect gift that enhances the pleasure and purpose of connection".
Behind the lucid design Colombo One utilises clear crisp DECT technology. Its functionality includes many useful features such as answering machine with 12 minutes of digital recording time, hands free capability, 10 ringtones, 100 number phonebook, caller display with 50 entry call log and so on.
Sold as a twin pack, expandable for up to five handsets, Colombo One is available nationally from major retailers for $149 inc GST (RRP).
