K2 Red Telephone Box
1926

The noble Red Telephone Box is a British institution, inspiring warm thoughts and a distinctively British style across the generations. Britain's very first red booth design was the cast-iron K2, which very quickly became ubiquitous throughout London and the surrounding areas throughout the 1920s and 1930s.

Britain’s Red Telephone Boxes continued to take inspiration from the K2 throughout the entire payphone era, and copies and tributes to the design can still be found in phone booths around the world today.
