Is this work by Martine Feipel and Jean Bechameil an ode to the past or a sign of things to come?

With its strict geometrical shapes, Electric Eclipse takes us back to around the 1920s when designs like this were used to celebrate the emerging industrial world and new technologies. The future looked bright. Feipel and Bechameil have updated that design for the 21st century with the addition of robotics and a particular kind of white that creates a sense of artificiality and detachment.
