These Turntable Designs Are Minimalist Masterpieces

Sound has never looked so good.

Music and design share a long and rich history. In fact, since at least the ’50s, turntables and hi-fi systems have been leading forms for manufacturers to showcase their minimalist design chops. Companies like Braun, Bang & Olufsen and MAG-LEV have built their reputations on slick, angular pieces of technology, some of which have even ended up in the Museum of Modern Art and other leading art institutions. They’re the perfect creations to do visual justice to that incredible new record you’ve just acquired. Check out images of some of their beautiful designs below. Vinyl Factory has the story behind each piece of equipment and what makes them so revolutionary for both audio and design here.
