我们熟知的英国设计中,这个红色电话亭(telephone kiosk)绝对能排在前几名,横跨20年代到60年代,一共设计了八个版本(K1-K8,图片由左至右、上至下排布),其中K1/4/5/7/8由英国皇家邮局主导设计,K2/3/6由Giles Gilbert Scott所主持。当中以K6的设计外形最为经典,借鉴了上续几代设计的经验,减低成本且便于运输。在这里可以看到几代红色电话亭的更多资料和信息。

The red telephone box, a telephone kiosk for a public telephone designed by Sir Giles Gilbert Scott, is a familiar sight on the streets of the United Kingdom, Malta, Bermuda and Gibraltar, and despite a reduction in their numbers in recent years, red boxes can still be seen in many places and in current or former British colonies around the world. The colour red was chosen to make them easy to spot. If you interested in this subject, you could check “The history of the red phone box“.
