Apple is famous for its modern, clean design. Not surprisingly, the company creates a lot of concepts, but in fact the units are implemented. Nevertheless, it is interesting to see what could have happened.

Designer Hartmut Esslinger and his firm Frog Design were responsible for most of the designed designs in the 1980s. In connection with this, the book "Ingeniously Simple - The early years of Apple design" was published in which Hartmut Esslinger published images of some prototypes that were not included in the sale. In this article, we will show some of the images of this book to analyze the super-ideas that were paid by Apple over the decades of work.
