The Brionvega “skyskraper radio” is back in a high-tech version!
The mythical rr327, fruit of the creative design of Marco Zanuso in 1965, combines the classic design with some technological features such as RDS, USB housing as well as
SD memory cards.
The Italian industrial design awakens boosting itself by combining tradition and modernity, reputation and progress. This is the story of Brionvega, the company which, since 1945, has been producing prestigious and stylish appliances. Their TVs and Radios and their electrical appliances have fascinated and embodied the time of the economic boom. Today, thanks to continuous research activities, tradition and innovation have merged.
In the last months while in the USA the phenomena of the table radios was literally exploding, Brionvega played their ace with their classic masterpiece: the cubic radio
(model ts 502 by Marco Zanuso and Richiard Sapper) by adding the function of the clock radio and external temperature sensor device. Moreover they reviewed the electronics by maintaining its unmistakable design. Now this is the right moment for innovating and reviving another legendary masterpiece: the mythical rr327, inspired by the skyscraper of Marco Zanuso, designed in 1965 marked RR 127. The distinguishing characters lie not in the shape but in peculiar features: digital display 61mm x 15mm, with white lettering on black background, display for the selected radio station, RDS, time display, and clock radio.
The electronics allow automatic search of the desired radio station and save up to 8 radio stations. Its geometrical and parallelepiped shape allows the user to place the radio either horizontally or vertically, according to the space available. To highlight this function, the radio frequency display is placed both horizontal and vertical on the radio. The clock radio function allows to set the alarm radio either for a single time or for everyday, whereas the snooze button guarantees a gradual awakening. Thanks to the USB and Jack port, the SD cards the clock radio can be set either by selecting the radio, a beeper or an external source of music so as to enable connection to an external device such as MP3 reader.
This is in fact the major innovation of the appliance, the access to all external sound sources harmoniously combined with its design, this allow the use of digital music, next to the one transmitted by the radio waves. The rr327 weighs 1,35 kg, is powered by mains electricity and is available in the classical colours Brionvega red, black, matt white and matt black.
