Designer Rafael Cichy of Bochum, Germany, is pleased to present his latest project, "Thorax," an ultramodern modular media console. The three basic elements are each 52cm squares with a width of 8cm, made of 4cm-thick concrete, aligned as spaced-out segments of a rectangular table of variable length.
O: for example, space for vinyl
E: with three parking levels for hifi equipment. by turning it upside down your can change height of the middle level.
C: with two parking levels. for example bigger equipment like power amplifier or something else.
The connectors come in three sizes—3cm, 4cm or 5cm—and materials—stainless steel or aluminum (brushed or anodized)—to accommodate a variety of A/V equipment. Thus, it is possible to introduce a slight curve to the sections (i.e. using two longer connectors and two shorter ones), a subtle break from the modernist grid that the Thorax otherwise spells in capital letters.
Cichy also notes that the connectors can conceal cables and wires that beleaguer even the most minimal systems.
Pair it up with Shmuel Linski's concrete speakers and all you need is a concrete receiver to complete the look...
