Sexy desktop computers hit Canada’s largest interior design event


September 28, 2006, Toronto – It could be a new category of product for IIDEX / NeoCon. Canadian industrial designer Howard Suissa launched his company and its product today at Canada’s largest interior design event.  Suissa Computers designs and builds exclusive computer systems with cases handmade in wood with metal and other accent materials.


Suissa’s designs are a first in the industry. “While technology and design have advanced in leaps and bounds, the artistic cultural reflection found in computer case design has stagnated,” says the Thornhill, Ontario based designer.  “Most design discussion on computers is either on the disappearance of technology, or is a visual grappling with a technology one no longer understands.”


He says the former leads to a “what’s-the-point-if-it’s-going-to-disappear” attitude, while the latter results in clear plastic on everything electronic. “With the integration of computers into our living environment, people are craving something more human,” says Suissa. “They relate to natural materials more readily than to the cold sterility of plastic or metal.”


Suissa also unveiled “Fire @ Will,” a prototype made with the recycled wood off-cuts from the other models. “Our production process is clean, and we recycle all our wood and metal waste,” says Suissa. “Wood waste is used as mulch in the garden or is used in other projects.”


The upscale computers are stacked with a choice of high end component packages, for home and home office, gaming or entertainment.
