Carrello Musica Is a Newly-Reborn Gorgeous Record Stand from 1968

A well-designed record stand is truly capable of making or breaking a collection. It seems as though the more avant-garde it looks, the more suitable it seems to house an eclectic array of LPs, which is where Italian design legend Joe Colombo comes in to play. Taking inspiration from his mid-century Music Cart, an Italian design firm called Codiceicona has composed the Carrello Musica, a record stand that aims to serve as a one-stop turntable station.

Colombo’s Music Cart initially hit the scene in 1968 and has served as a relic of 20th-century interior design for quite some time now. This particular rendition abides to tradition, having been made in collaboration with Ignazia Favata, a member of the Joe Colombo Studio. While its composition remains fully intact, significant enhancements include an accompanying turntable and pair of speakers that seamlessly complement the Music Cart’s original design.

In addition to the turntable, the attractive piece of retro furniture even comes equipped with a special-edition record, Joe Colombo at Santa Telca, which is composed of mid-century jazz numbers by artists who performed at the designer’s favorite jazz club. Formerly, Colombo worked with the likes of Kartel, Oluce, and Boffi, among others, all of which are beyond-reputable names in the world of furniture design.

For the longest time, record collectors were only able to imagine how therapeutic it would be to organize each of their albums in this stand’s respective slots. To their delight, Codiceiona’s Carrello Musica will be made available for purchase starting in April. While there are no formal pricing details just yet, you can keep an eye on the firm’s website and social media channels in the coming weeks.
