A smile is the only possible outcome to 'Robots 1:1'

"Telephone Robot" (24.5 cm, 1968)—produced by the Japanese toy company Yonezawa—is reproduced from ROBOTS 1:1, the astonishing new compendium from Vitra Design Museum. It would be hard to imagine a more surprising and delightful holiday gift for a toy, book or kinetic sculpture collector. Measuring just over 12 inches wide by 19 inches tall and spectacularly well printed on deluxe paper with space-black edges to match the impeccable photography, this signed and numbered edition of 1000 books (packaged with a poster and a USB stick containing video of 54 of the robots in motion) presents a selection of 148 robots and astronauts from the R.F. Robot Collection. Naturally, each is reproduced at 1:1 scale. You really have to see it to believe it. A smile is the only possible outcome.
