eBay watch: UFO record player

by Modculture 23 September, 2009


A design classic from the late 60s that's a cut above your average Dansette – the Patrice Dupont-designed Philips UFO portable record player.

It's a much sought-after design, featured in the equally sought-after L'utopie Du Tout Plastique book/catalogue of space age design, offering up a record player with built-in speaker, battery power and of course, the look of a flying saucer.

This is a great example, with just a few fine scratches, currently selling for a ridiculously cheap £35. Keep your eye on it.
