The story

The “Primo”

It is difficult to talk about the radiofonografo, (which has become a cult object in many countries of the world), without telling the story of how it was born, and in what form it presented itself for "Primo"; with the furniture and wooden loudspeakers, the work of skilled craftsmen, never the same, never "perfect", always splendid and unique.

Primo was the first model made with the noble materials of that time, wood and aluminum ..It was designed for an audience of refined and design-conscious consumers.
"The stereophonic radiofonografo rr126, modular mobile musical robot of expressive physiognomy, has an exceptional reputation for ease of use, playful formal sobriety and rigor of details..." (Sergio Polano in Castiglioni).

la selezione

the Selection

Primo reborn today for the first time, in just 100 units total, each one signed and numbered.
Each unit is different from the other due to the flame or grain of the wood, and the work of the skilled craftsmen.

This is never the same, never "perfect", always splendid and unique. A careful selection of the "flames" of the wood and a maniacal attention to detail combined with a warm and seductive color that only "canaletto walnut" can give, lead this object to become a unique solution for furnishing the most refined environments with music.

the Function

"Objects must keep company" is one of Achille Castiglioni's most famous phrases, and the radiofonografo has been for many years the "companion" of famous musicians such as David Bowie. This confirms the very concept for this unique object that "it was designed to do company" and not just perform the function of playing music well.
