Radio-phono Super SK 4 | 1956
The SK 4 radio-gramophone embodied pure functionalism, showing parallels with the functionalist styles of classic modern architecture. For the first time, the gramophone functions were made a feature of the product’s appearance, rather than being hidden away as before. Another innovative feature was the systematic layout of the controls. The choice of materials was equally innovative, with light-colored wood, metal and Plexiglas. The lid made of Plexiglas, a material not viewed as particularly high value at the time, was so revolutionary that the product was dubbed Snow White’s coffin!
