Though visually deceiving, this is not a record player from the 1980’s – it is a work of art for the bathroom, designed by Gianluca Paludi for Olympia. As well as the obvious aesthetic appeal, the ‘Vinyl’ contains a myriad of hidden functionalities:
- The spinning platter and vinyl compose the recessed basin, with the platter’s axis being a tiny drainage hole.
- The tonearm – complete with a realistic counterweight at the opposite end to the stylus – constitute the mixer and spout.
- The two volume control knobs actually regulate the pressure and temperature of the water.
- The LED-illuminated mirror replicates the display of a music equalizer.
- The storage drawer hosts a Bluetooth speaker, indicated by the perforations on the front.
- The frame below houses a tempered glass shelf, a towel rail and a leather bag; providing plentiful storage for toiletries and accessories.
Vinyl balances the beauty of modern functionality, with a retro twist – packed with personality and providing the perfect nostalgia for music-lovers.
