The iMac G3’s design was one of the most significant and iconic products in Apple’s history. Its multicolored plastic see-through case was radically different from anything else at the time.
Nikolay Lamm‘s concept for what a ‘budget’ iPhone might look like inspires itself from the G3, and it looks pretty darn nice. Whether Jony Ive is willing to don his throwback cap and recreate the design is a different question entirely, and unfortunately I’m pretty skeptical about this coming to market. However it would be great if it did.
