A Stylish Italian Take On The Classic Gramophone

View all 10 Photos

The iconic phonograph has an instantly recognizable shape that brings to mind black and white images, silent movies and classical music. Invented in the 19th century and brought to the masses in the 20th, the device has now been re-imagined by Paolo Cappello for Miniforms, an Italian company with a penchant for clean and contemporary designs. Hand made in Venice by seasoned craftsmen, this modern take on the vintage audio system is equal parts style and fantastic audio quality. The Caruso wireless gramophone features a minimalist shape that reduces the original funnel to a perfectly round ceramic horn that complements a modern hardwood cabinet with elegance. A Bluetooth enabled speaker allows the users to control the system and to rediscover their favorite songs through a unique sound. Made to order, the gramophone comes in lacquered wood, walnut, or rare Italian oak from the 1700s, with the ceramic horn available in modern grey, red, yellow tones or even plated with pure gold. Ultimately, the Caruso Gramophone is just as much a professional audio system as it is a chic decor piece that can create a focal point in any interior.
