totem rr231

Original design by Mario Bellini

Signed in 1971 by the designer Mario Bellini, totem is a famous design work that encompasses the search for primary forms, such as the simple volume of a cube, and which leads to modularity and composability, hiding the functions of a Hi-Fi. From this apparent cube, Bellini brings out a stereo system, speakers included.
Unmissable collector's item, a faithful re-edition of the original project, it is re-proposed today renovated and equipped with the best contemporary technology.

totem

With the stereo system closed it is a smooth cube while once opened the speakers rotate and resemble wings. This product is important for the way it combines sculpture and sound. The act of opening the cube, inserting the disc and playing the music requires the participation of the user and creates a "ritual". Overall, the product is a piece of modern art and transforms a simple shape into something more.

Each speaker is equipped with a 2-and-a-half-way speaker system (one mechanical reflex loading woofer, one mid-woofer and one tweeter). By leaving the speakers in their rotating supports, the distance between them is sufficient to ensure excellent sound quality.

The speakers are removable, so they can also be positioned in other points of the room far from the console and with sufficient sound power to cover medium and large rooms.
What distinguishes it from normal turntables is the way it integrates the speaker system into its design, making the object more of a piece of art than a simple stereo system.
