Grattacielo-Radio-Speaker-Brionvega

Half neon orange emergency radio, half Gordon Gekko brick phone, the Grattacielo (Italian for ‘skyscraper’) Radio Speaker looks like the kind of device modern color block artist Piet Mondrian would own. The original AM/FM version of the Grattacielo was actually designed back in 1965 by architect Marco Zanuso and has now been updated for the 21st Century with DAB/DAB+, Bluetooth connectivity, USB charging, AUX input, and a rechargeable lithium battery for easy transport. The monochromatic LCD screen and telescoping antenna are great throwbacks, and the huge tuning frequency numbers make for easy legibility. Plus, you can easily tip this skyscraper on its side since there are horizontally and vertically arranged numerals. If you’re truly desperate for privacy, you can even hold it up to your ear with the antenna deployed to make it look like you’re on a very important phone call with Strategic Air Command.
