It might look like a prop from a low-budget sci-fi movie, but this the Nava Columbia calculator is actually a piece of high-end design from the 1980s – and one you can still buy today.

The work of Sottsass Associati (the company of previously-featured Italian designer Ettore Sottsass), it does everything you would expect of your average calculator, but just looks so much more stylish – whether you go for the black or silver finish.

Originally designed in 1989, it’s available today complete with case for a little more than its price ‘in the day’ – just £31.
