SK4 Record Player by Dieter Rams
Dieter Rams influence on the world of design is significant. Hired in 1954 by the Braun brothers, he will have through four decades deeply changed the traditional aesthetic of furniture creation. As shows the SK4 Record Player, undeniable symbol of this revolution. On the radio-vynil station, the German gives up the usual wooden boxes and opts for the metal. The cover, to avoid the vibrations, is made of transparent plastic. A constraint that unveils the mechanisms but seduces the public, this one seeing there a sign of modernity. Rams innovations are legion and the new creators generations don’t stop referring to, copying or tributing it. We so could discover Jordi Parra‘s Spotify player or, today, this wink of Chris Labrooy.
