We can’t tell anymore. Is it more cliché to say that analog media is dead, or to try and make the counterargument? The fact that it’s hard to tell is likely a sign that the conversation itself is played-out. Regardless of what people are or are not saying about the state of analogue media – furniture makers like Mitz Takahashi are still making pieces like this Korgis Record Bookshelf to store records, magazines and books. Even more importantly? People are going crazy for it.
Just a quick look at this bookshelf and it’s easy to understand why. The contrasting of fine walnut against plated satin brass legs makes this piece stand out without being too loud. In addition to the attractive design, Takahashi’s Korgis is surprisingly versatile. Depending on where you fall on the audiophile-bookworm spectrum, you can get different configurations with more or fewer drawers for storing your record collection. Far from an add-on, the drawers that come with this setup can easily fit your vinyl records while displaying a good deal of the cover art. Prices are available on request. [Purchase]
