Description

The generating idea of ​​this project, which first appeared in the furnishing of Casa Albini in 1938, was to fit the technological components of the radio between two thick crystal plates, thus "denuding" their technological attributes and freeing the radio instrument. of the heavy suit he used to wear, disguising it as a wooden piece of furniture. The radio object then fits into the crystal that served to support it, but above all to expose its mechanisms, to make visible what had always been hidden, minimizing the "container" to emphasize the "content". Although subsequently developed in several similar versions between 1938 and 1940, mobile radio has become an object-symbol of the constant search for dematerialization of objects, of that enhancement of the "void" that Albini pursues in his idea of ​​design, which seems poetically abstraction from the cultural context prevailing in those years.
