First designed and created half a century ago by Achille Giacomo Castiglioni, a renowned designer whose works can be found in the MoMA New York, the V&A in London, and the Triennale in Milan, and his brother Pier, the Radiofonografo RR126 is a stunning piece of modern industrial art, one that captures the confidence and audacity of the era and which looks as good today as it did in the swinging 60s.
