Live@ICFF, Editor’s Pick: Tivoli Audio
When it comes to technology, one of my favorite objects is a Tivoli portable radio. The high-quality sound, the compact size, and the old-school knobs are perfect for simple folk like me. What’s refreshing is that the company in recent years has embraced Design with a capital “D.” This year’s iPAL models, for example, are available in high-gloss red, green, blue, yellow, and black—zippy colors that are bound to please.
Its Model One Frost White collection comes with a high-gloss white cabinet with vibrant face plates in “Sunflower Yellow,” “Kelly Green,” “Ember Red,” or “Snow White.”
This year also marks the tenth anniversary of Tivoli Audio. In addition to launching the Celebration Edition—a Model 10 unit in light or dark aluminum–the company is inviting designers, illustrators, and photographers from around the world to participate in a special international competition to design a poster to celebrate the creativity and success of the audio company. The winner gets some money and the winning design will be displayed on a billboard in Times Square.
