Azio’s Iris keyboard draws inspiration from vintage cameras

The new model, made with aviation grade aluminum and encased in leather, pays a tribute to analog photo cameras from the sixties.

Azio is a well known brand among keyboard enthusiasts for its old-style and steampunk designs. The company’s latest product, called Iris, keeps the retro motif intact while leaning more on the minimalistic side. 
To achieve the right look and feel of its new keyboard, Azio drew inspiration from iconic vintage cameras from the sixties, where fine materials like leather and aluminum, paired with high-scale manufacturing, defined the timeless look of brands such as Leica.

The inspiration is especially clear in the sturdy metal knob sitting at the top right corner of the Iris: made to resemble a camera’s lens and its function crowns, it can be configured to control media playback and volume on Mac and PCs, or to dim the keyboard’s backlighting. The Iris comes with a 5000 mAh Li-ion rechargeable battery w/ USB Type-C charging, Bluetooth & RF 2.4 Ghz dual mode connection, and Cherry MX Switch keys with RGB backlighting, for that iconic click-clack that would also remind of a vintage camera’s shutter sound.
