Stromberg-Carlson Radio

1992-476a.jpg

A simple, yet elegant radio designed and manufactured by Stromberg-Carlson of Toronto. Made from a half cylinder carved out of black walnut with a wild cherry base that allows the radio to either lie flat (as pictured) or stand upright. There’s something very butch-tin-can about this piece — yet on further inspection, the design details really shine: A semi-circular mirrored plate is embedded behind the instrument face, doing away with the need for backlighting, while the stand-up or lie-flat form allows for optimal viewing from whatever surface the radio is placed on. A great example of classic (yet anonymous) Canadian design.
