The Clipper CS-1, a self-contained, encapsulated computer workstation might not appeal a lot to the geeks today when we have a range of high-tech and designer luxury workstations around us, but it was a real innovation at the time it was introduced.

With the Clipper CS1, you can have a separate workplace without having a separate room. The rear and front side components offer space for CPU, manuals, files, and even a small printer. Side wings have 4 positions – flat, inclined, and closed. The seat, back and foot rests all adjust to allow for an exact custom fit to a wide range of body sizes. Around hundred units were produced at that time and the design received appreciation in numerous magazines.
