Trashbot Stationery Set Features Desk Accessories Modeled After Classic Mac Interface

Designer Philip Lee, known for creating a range of fun Mac-themed desktop toys, has launched a new stationery product called Trashbot 2.0. The Trashbot set features a collection of desk accessories that are fashioned to look like the Classic Mac OS from the 1980s.

There's a whiteboard that looks like a Mac desktop, a Trashbot figure that is designed to hold pens, a 200 page Memo Pad, an Error Bot figure, and three desktop icons with magnetic backs that look like the old Mail, Folder, and Disk icons. The little magnetic icons can be attached to the whiteboard to hold notes from the Memo Pad.

Wish they'd make some of the classic OS X. I missed the skeumorphism.
Peak beauty! I hope one day Apple returns to this design language even as a theme:

So you want post it notes that look like the Skeumorphism notes, which are based on post it notes?

Peak beauty! I hope one day Apple returns to this design language even as a theme:

The Aqua theme and and how it visually bridged hardware and UI was huge at the time. It influenced industrial design for other companies for years. It was the look of the late 90's early 2000's. Personally I was over it, and happy for the more subtle flatter look, but definitelty have fond memories!

Man, I wish so bad we could get WindowShades back from the classic Mac OS days. The ability to roll up your application into the title bar was just amazing and so useful. Still sad they removed it and any third party options are really janky.

But hey, Stage Manager is really useful, right? Right?

(TBF I kid - I do use Stage Manager, but it’s not nearly as handy as WindowShades were)
