302 Desk phone Black or Red (by Wild & wolf)
The iconic type 302 phone was designed by the prolific industrial
designer Henry Dreyfuss and introduced in 1937.
He used ear to mouth
measurements from 2000 people to create the egonomic handset.
to incorporate the bell in the base of the unit, the phone was
originally cast in metal. This piece was later produced using a
heavy-duty plastic housing. Its appearance, combined with a rugged
construction, earned it the nickname “The Cow’s Hoof” because of its
lipped hoof-style base.
This early desk version served as the standard
for the better part of World War II while telephone design efforts were
halted due to defense work.
