The rr-126 is a radiographer designed by the Italian brothers Pier Giacomo and Achille Castiglioni in 1964, commissioned and produced by the Italian electronics company Brionvega, which has made history in the field of design applied to hi-tech products. The object was one of the status symbols of the ’60s and one of the most sought-after pieces of the modern art of the ’80s and ’90s. An icon of pop design thanks to its trendy colours and shapes in those years. It consists of three modular elements in veneered masonite and is mounted on an aluminium pedestal connected to a monobloc cast iron trolley placed on four wheels that facilitate its transport.
The main element of rectangular shape includes the devices for use, the other two of cubic shape are the loudspeakers that contain the speakers. The operating devices consist of two rotary switches with a semi-circular scale for selecting the tuning, five rotary switches for adjusting bass, treble and balance, volume and level. Above the main element is a turntable with automatic three-speed gearbox. The turntable is covered and protected by a smoked perspex hood.
