Publisher's description: Radio initially developed into a mass medium in the early 20th century, and soon afterwards, designing radio devices became an essential task for prominent international designers. Radio Days traces the path of the radio up to the present day -- from pure components and wooden boxes, "cathedrals" and "skyscrapers," to cult design objects and opulent music cabinets, all the way to fun miniature devices. Featured designers include Norman Bel Geddes, Mario Bellini, Marc Berthier, Artur Braun, Achille & Pier Giacomo Castiglioni, Wells Coates, Ray and Charles Eames, Frank Glover, Walter Maria Kersting, Wolfgang Laubersheimer, David Lewis, Raymond Loewy, Dietrich Lubs, John R. Morgan, Dieter Rams, John Gordon Rideout, Richard Sapper, Barton T. Setchell, J. Samson Spencer, Philippe Starck, Walter Dorwin Teague, Harold van Doren and Marco Zanuso, among others.
