Grid Studio deconstructs classic Apple devices and turns them into must-have works of art
Grid Studio has created the ultimate collection of must-have pieces for anyone with a love for Apple by carefully disassembling classic and monumental products, including the original iPhone and first-generation Apple Watch, and turning them into incredible wall decorations.
With 15 different Apple designs to choose from, Grid Studio‘s artwork offers a piece by piece deconstruction of some of Apple’s most loved products, revealing the internals on a framed A3 size print that shows off each original component mapped out with labels, creating truly fascinating decorations for any Apple enthusiast’s home or office.
For this feature, Grid Studio sent The Apple Post their GRID® 4 frame, which features a black iPhone 4 laid out in all its glory on a white backdrop – showing everything from the 3.5-inch multi-touch display through to the device’s rounded volume buttons, A4 chip, 30-pin connector, main board, and classic Home button.
The iPhone 4 was my first iPhone, so it’s always had a special place in my Apple-obsessed heart. Seeing the internals spread out right in front of me is both nostalgic and mesmerizing. I find myself often getting up close and admiring each small detail of the device’s main board and chassis, which you can tell Grid Studio carefully placed and ensured were in perfect condition before gluing to the frame.
The artwork even includes the device’s marketing slogan “This changes everything. Again.” and features a Steve Jobs signature with one of his memorable quotes, ‘We’re here to put a dent in the universe. Otherwise why else even be here?’.
The GRID® 4 I received from Grid Studio is priced at $169, with a limited time 18% off discount running online at the moment that takes this, plus the company’s iPhone 4S and iPhone 5 frames, down to $139. Other available grids include frames for the iPhone 3GS, iPhone X, original iPhone, and iPhone 7. See the full range here.
I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Grid Studio to anyone searching for the perfect gift for a loved one or simply something to display classic pieces of Apple history around their home. The frame I received came wrapped in luxury black gift paper with a ribbon. The box itself was packaged perfectly, with protection in place to make sure the piece arrived safely.
Grid Studio has a lot more on offer than just Apple devices. The company also makes frames for the super-retro Game Boy, Sony PSP, Google Pixel, and more. You can see the full range online here.
