The walnut wood, that characterizes its aesthetic appearance, is particulary valuable. It is defined canaletto due to its the internal channels that carry chlorophyll. It is characterized by its unique chocolate color, sometimes blended with purple streaks. The choices of its veins and flames are not accidental, they're carefully selected to mix and embrace the paths and parables offered by nature itself. The result is the harmony and the beauty, that only wood can provide, always different and unique.
* 100 collectible pieces
There are 100 pieces of the radiofonografo PRIMO collection, that constitute a limited edition. Each piece is recognizable by its signature and exclusive serigraphy that shows the progressive numbers. 5 pieces of the collection can be ordered exclusively in the online store: these are 5 prime numbers that, starting from number 17, can be chosen and booked, with an exclusive delivery within 15 days.
Every radiofonografo is an unique handwork, but at its origin there is a manufacturing process of extreme precision, with buttons and chassis made by CNC milling machines, a stand melted in a single piece from a sand mould and then painted individually and with the utmost care. The capable hands of our artisans turn semifinished pro- ducts into truly unique products. Wood panels sanding, components assembly, stand finishing and silk screen printing are all processes allowing the italian craftsman- ship tradition to make each radiofonografo unique.
