Teenage Engineering Made Mini ITX PC Chassis Called Computer-1
As explained from the product page, the Computer-1 begins life in 2014. It started as a case made from a 6mm high-density board and spray paint after the company founders couldn’t find a desktop case they liked.
Later, it was held together with wooden plugs and included handles, but still couldn’t hold the weight. Computer-1 is the latest iteration of the design using 1mm thick aluminum powder coated in a pure orange RAL 2004.
