I have always been inspired by the language of turntables and entertainment units from the 1960s, says Singaporean designer Nathan Yong. Which is a remarkable statement when you learn that Yong grew up in a wooden hut by the sea, where he and his brother made their own toys and "waited for low tides so we could pick up treasures from the shore. " Growing up with the beach as entertainment, Yong has developed into a resourceful designer, whose work captivated us with its quiet elegance. At At Salone del Mobile , the annual furniture fair in Milan, Yong showed his Line Media Console (2010), inspired by "the fluid streamlined forms of 1960s stereo components. " An elegant cabinet with a louvered exterior, it is designed so a remote control will operate the media components inside even when the doors are closed. The Media Console 70 has one shelf, one drawer and a cord escape. Constructed with leveling floor glides for uneven surfaces. Made in Malaysia.
