A timeless object: The Brionvega Totem RR231 Audio System
In 1971, celebrated architect and designer Mario Bellini created an audio system that featured an innovative modular system. Named Totem rr231, the design incorporated a turntable and two speakers that came together to create a perfect cubic form. The speakers rotated to open the unit and reveal the turntable in the middle. To mark the audio system’s 50th anniversary, Italian brand Brionvega re-launched the design with some modern upgrades. The new Totem rr231 stereo system recreates the original faithfully, but also features contemporary technology, seamlessly integrated in its design. Monolithic and minimalist the pristine white cube blends sculpture and sound in one.
Radiofonografo RR226 designed by Achille & Pier Giacomo Castiglioni for Brionvega is a radiophonograph equipped with turntable, AM / FM radio, connectors for connecting external systems, Bluetooth and headphone jack output. It comes with forged aluminum pedestal and wheels, it is also possible to orient and move the speakers. Available in different finishes.
