When Teenage Engineering launched the Computer-1, I don't think anyone saw it coming.

In the end, it seems like a perfect little idea from TE. There is a Jupiter sized gap in the PC marketplace when it comes to unique design—everything for the most part is a big black box.

Not only is the design strikingly different, it's also flat packed, and assembled by hand. I'd love to get my hands on one of these, because my biggest questions compared to other cases are going to be airflow, and noise.

It has a small form factor supporting mini-ITX motherboards, making it fit perfectly under (or on) your desk.

How to assemble the Teenage Engineering Computer-1

The Computer-1 isn't your standard PC case, and requires you to bend (gasp!) it all into position. Don't worry too much though, TE has put out a full guide, as well this video showcasing the entire thing.
