Old Leica Cameras & Typewriters Inspired This Modern Minimalist Turntable

It’s always great when someone is able to merge classic, retro design with modern technology, and the RMV Turntable concept is a glorious execution of this trend. Designed by the trio of Sang Keun Kim Kyung, Jun Lee Cheon, & Ryong Choi, the RMV (Retro Modern Vibe) Turntable received its inspiration from vintage typewriters and Leica cameras.

The minimalist turntable may look simple, but the concept is actually packing in quite a bit of impressive tech. The tonearm is digitally operated and mounted at two points across the platter, where it moves horizontally and has a cartridge that travels freely within its hollow structure. Next to the platter is a very austere control layout, with an on/off knob, volume rocker, and buttons to play, pause, and skip — presumably for use when the turntable is streaming Bluetooth audio content — while the rear contains more thorough controls, hidden out of sight. The RMV can be displayed in a number of different ways: laid flat, hung on the wall vertically, or propped up at an angle via the integrated kickstand. Executed in both black and white versions, you can see more of the RMV Turntable on Behance.
