I couldn’t believe my eyes when I came across the site of Swedish inventors and synth-makers Teenage Engineering. The modern yet toy-like styling of their OP-1 Portable Synthesizer and the aesthetic of their overall site was an oddly enticing mix of 80s-infused design and Japanese pop culture.
Though the company’s inventions feature a toy-like appearance, they are actually quite advanced; beneath the candy colored buttons and bold type on the OP-1 is a professional grade synth.
You can also add a number of accessories to your synth, from cranks to carrying cases, all available in the store! If your mind isn’t blown yet, check out their other inventions, most notably the Absolut Choir below, which features a 22 piece robotic singing choir!
