Roy Harpaz Standing Record Player
The egg-shaped player modernizes a vintage staple.
Industrial designer Roy Harpaz has created a vertical, egg-shaped record player called TOC, inspired by two pivotal design elements – clean and simple. The result is a beautiful and natural aesthetic featuring a wooden look. A linear tracking system is implemented to ensure the analog sound is properly captured, complemented with modern updates such as LED touch buttons and a remote control. Users are also able to skip tracks — thanks to its sensor that scans the tracks on every vinyl inserted. The design also allows for playing warped records with no problem, a feat of its special spherical bearings ensuring that no old records are left in the dust. Aside from all the technical advancements and updates, the product looks sleek and clean, making for a perfect conversation piece. For more information, check out Harpaz’s website here.
