“An object that came from the Moon” – this was the definition of the TV Linea 1 designed by the world famous Rodolfo Bonetto (1929-1991) for Autovox.
The legend tells that Bonetto was inspired by the NASA monitors seen on the media during the moon landing in 1969.
We do not know if the story is true, but in any case this object stands as a milestone of mid century design and an example of innovation, with its neat shapes and perfect blend of form and function.
This piece is in good aesthetic conditions, with scratches consistent with age. All the switches are present, there is no antenna. This piece is not working, and it is sold exclusively as design object.
