Transcriptor.

The Transcriptor turntable was designed in 1964 by David Gammon. This is an early example of “High-Tech” aesthetics, a style that has never completely disappeared since the early 60s. this was a way to not only celebrate the craftsmanship that is often covered by a decorative shell but also to appease minimalists(such as myself), who shun the idea of over-ornamentation.

Thanks to Allen Reddig, a great designer and thinker, for enlightening me on this and many design theories.
