Andy Aaron’s Antique Calculators

Designer Andy Aaron makes Victorian-era calculators using antique components such as switches, cranks, and levers, which he then mounts in a large, antique-style frame. The calculators are fully functional and can perform basic mathematical operations. Aaron calls them Adding Machines.

“I strive to have my pieces look like they are functional, utilitarian, mass-produced devices plucked from some imaginary office of another era,” Aaron explains. “Perhaps from the 19th century, perhaps from a time that never existed.” 

Aaron’s company custom-builds each device to be unique and produces only 2 to 3 calculators per each year, that have prices starting from $5,000.
