RADIOFONOGRAFO RR226 FO-ST ORANGE
SOUND - DYKE & DEAN
Original design by Achille and Pier Giacomo Castiglioni in 1965.
Half a century of uniqueness, told by a smile like on the first day. The Radiofonografo, designed in 1965 by the designers Achille and Pier Giacomo Castiglioni, is perfect because it is unique thanks to its unmistakable style. Retro charm combined with incredible sound quality and the ability to align and adjust the speakers in the best possible way in the room for an exciting and captivating listening experience. Mobility, dynamism for an object that was inherently static. Add to that the minimalist form, the essence of the project or the “most important planning component”, as the Castiglioni brothers like to put it.
The black walnut wood, which underlines the aesthetic aspect, is particularly noble. The wood is called Canaletto in Italian because of the internal channels through which the chlorophyll is transported and has an unmistakable chocolate brown, sometimes with purple stripes. The selection of the grain and the flame is not random either, but is made with great care. It is not ensured that a uniform pattern is created, but that the paths and parables of nature are taken up in all their beauty, which only the unique and always different wood can give.
Each radiophonograph is a unique, hand-made original, but it starts with a highly precise production process in which the buttons and the structure of the central body are made with numerically controlled milling, while the base is made with melt and sand molding processes and then individually with is painted with the greatest care. The skilled hands of our craftsmen turn the semi-finished products into authentic one-offs. The sanding of the wooden panels, the assembly of the individual components, the finishing of the base, the application of the screen printing are processes with which the Italian tradition of craftsmanship makes every radiophonograph unique.
