Kasbah Mod’s rejuvenated vintage typewriters are modified bits of modernity in analog bodies – taking vintage to the next level with high-end refurbishments of the coolest writing tools this side of a quill and ink pot. Kasbah Mod – also known as Kasbah Moderne – takes typewriters (complete with original 1873 typewriter technology), spiffs them up to pristine working condition, and retrofits them to suit any need – with custom paint jobs, 24-karat gold plating, artist-inspired editions – or even custom ink. Launched in 2010 by Chase Gilbert, these couture-quality machines allow lovers of high design to disconnect from the digital world one beautiful art object at a time.
Take some picks from this selection, and you’ll be well on your way to putting together a room that’s retro and timeless at once. Start with the accessories: the sculptural, bone china bottles, sleek cherry-bark boxes, and polygon mirrors all possess an organic-inspired, midcentury-modern feel. Or take the retro look in a Euro direction with a Swiss heraldic shield, some vintage English shoe trees, or colorful Swedish bottles — or channel Hemingway with a vintage typewriter.
A beautiful office both inspires and rewards hard work, and these vintage (and vintage-inspired) items — from authentic midcentury typewriters to Holly Hunt’s Industrial Era-reminiscent La Lampe Gras lighting collection — will lend your workspace a stylishly stately tenor that reflects the past. Steel trays, ceramic jars, and framed maps complete this classic picture.
