recently came across this extraordinary modular computer system called the Honeywell H632. Rolled out in 1968, and used as a high performance 32 bit processing computer system, the Honeywell H632 was definitely a unique blend of considerate modular industrial design with a beautiful color scheme. The Honeywell brand may sound familiar, as it should, since they’ve had their hand in all sorts of ventures ranging from aerospace, engineering and consumer products, i.e. thermostats (the roundish boob looking ones are most commonly seen in grandparent’s homes), etc…
Anyway, what really sold me on the H632 were the product shots. I just love the setting with the wood paneled slat walls, the wonderful gold color scheme of the massive Honeywell, and the 2 technicians hard at work. Such a beautiful mid-century modern setting. If I had the money, I’d buy this just to fill up a room with it. Oops, that’s the vanity talking.
