Doors, good post, but slightly subjective. :)

Do god's creation fall in design classic ? What is Beautiful ? A Child is beautiful to his/her mother.

There is a similar Grunding unit lying about at my Parents home. I could almost smell the smell of electronics in it as I gazed at the pic you posted and the memories came back.

Grundigs are very well made. This ReVox model is top of the line. I think Nagra are the studio standard. Considering (If you think best music was in the 60s to early 80s) all master tapes were on reels, so these are Big Daddy's of CDs and Vinyls. :D

Nagra portables: what a design classic they were! Beautiful looks and beautiful engineering.

always dreamed off examining one up close, but my rich friends have no taste! :)

here's an example of classic design in advertising. what could be simpler than taking the classic shape of your product, and making it the hero? sheer genius:

Oh yeah, I'd love to admire the eggs up close if I ever get a chance! Even if I get enough money, I somehow don't think I'd get one.

Absolut had some really nice campaigns.

On another note, I was drooling over some Nagra equipment online and I stumbled upon this beauty:
