The Brionvega RR226: the surprised robot stereo
In 1965, Italian designers Pier Giacomo and Achille Castiglioni crafted the Brionvega Radiofonografo RR126: a gorgeous masterpiece of 60s stereo design, featuring a radio, speakers, amplifier and phonograph, as well as a wonderfully pareidolic robot face made up of the knob and dial design.
Short of seeing one in a museum, you can't easily buy an RR126, but Brionvega have just announced a refresh: the RR226, boasting the same cute looks (the RR126 looks like nothing so much as a surprised, octagon-eared robot) and with a CD and DVD player packed in to boot.
The price has yet to be announced, but it's going to be expensive.
