A French company is appealing to IT savvy royalty with a historically inspired gold computer.
The Louis XVI inspired gold plate and onyx piece was designed by George Chirita of Paris as the ultimate piece of office bling, priced at 17,000 euros.
George told reporters: "From the beginning it was about creating a computer which was much more stylish, in harmony and concorde with the interior design, but in the end I realised the computer had become a pretext to create a real decorative object to enoble our surroundings."
He added: "To bring together and create this world of 'luxury technology', first of all you've got to use the latest high-tech innovations, in terms of the electronic components to build a computer like that, and we also use classic French styles which are timeless styles. Today, if you look through history, the only styles which have travelled through time are classic French styles."
Chirita has previously supplied IT equipment to royalty and his work is growing in popularity in the middle east and Asia.
He even sent Britain's Queen Elizabeth a gold plated USB stick as a present on her Diamond Jubilee.
