1960s Clairtone Project G2 Rosewood Stereo System
“Project G epitomized high design, pure form, the perfection of how sacred platonic geometry can bring our banal, everyday products to a higher spiritual art form. It set the trend for stereo equipment to become a composition of extreme pure form, sophisticated materials, and floating sculptural composition for Bang & Olufsen, Brionvega, Telefunken and others to emulate.” Karim Rashid If you are not familiar with the Clairtone project G I suggest you reference “The Art of Clairtone: The making of a design icon” by Nina Munk and Rachel Gotlieb. This example is a second Generation project G2 stereo and is in excellent condition. It was acquired from the original owner and was remarkably well preserved. It comes complete with the original amplified receiver and the Garrard turntable. The book-matched Brazilian rosewood cabinet is absolutely stunning and is completely flawless. The sound globes each rotate 360 degrees to optimize the direction of the sound in the room in relation to the listener. The Clairtone tuner has been professionally serviced along with the built in pre-amp and everything seems to function as intended. This is the Holy Grail of designer electronics from the 1960s. A Bluetooth device can be easily added to connect your ipad, phone or other device. Designed by Hugh Spencer.
