Brionvega Radio Self made prototype for docking station

The famous “Filodiffusione Radio” designed by Achille Castiglioni for Brionvega is an iconic piece of  Industrial Design . Realized in a glossy polished stainlesssteel diecast, has been transformed bymyself in I POd docking station. Is suplied with a T.Amp, Blue Tooth and Infrared technology. Brionvega  wished to reproduce it following the design and advice of my prototype but the original moulds have been lost.  (so I’ve been told by the CEO of the new Company). The design lamp is supposed to be Gae Aulenti design. High Gloss polished massive brass structure.
