RT-20 Radio


8faa_12_sb1

A 1961 design by Dieter Rams.

The Tri-band radio also comes with a white face, and is “a perfect example of how to establish functional and visual hierarchy via scale, spacing, and a strict grid system”

Acquired (2) in 2008 (from Germany, for $300 and $800 respectively).

    A beautiful example of Dieter Rams design. Definitely one of mu favourites. I was lucky to have found the model which was produced for export to North America (distributed by Clairtone). Now I am able to listen to am/fm on this wonderful radio!
