This stereo in Yasuo Moriyama's prefab Tokyo compound is just a tease for the the windowless basement “audio room,” where Moriyama spends private time in the company of 2,000 vinyl albums, mostly jazz. Here, a few albums are accompanied by Noguchi’s Akari Lamp 1N. Photo by Dean Kaufman.
Loredana Dall’ Amico reads in the living room of her weekend getaway in Valle de Bravo, Mexico, where all the seating was designed by her husband, the architect alle de Bravo, Mexico. The floating stainless steel unit behind her is also his design and contains a state-of-the-art stereo system. Photo by Paco Perez / Alluro.
Much of the charm of architect Lukáš Kordík's small apartment in Bratislava, Slovak Republic, is in its sense of careful clutter. The stereo, LPs, and CDs only add to the sense that this flat was designed for living, not as an airless showpiece.
