Charles and Ray Eames employed their knowledge of moulding plywood techniques to create a wide range of roducts – including radio cabinets. By 1952, roughly 200,000 radios designed by the Eameses had been sold. Their 1946 esign of a compact table-top device with a plywood case was rejected by the designated manufacturer, although Charles and Ray strongly advocated for its production.
Over 70 years later, Vitra has now joined the Eames Office to revive the design of this compact radio. Encased in an elegant walnut cabinet and equipped with up-to-date technology by the British manufacturer REVO, the Eames Radio is available in a limited edition of 999 units.
Materials: walnut, front and back panels made of powder-coated aluminium
