Environment and SYMBOL Audio have partnered to make an exclusive Stereo Console that highlights the beauty of the signature reclaimed Peroba used in our furniture collections.
SYMBOL audio handcrafts modern audio HIFI consoles and bespoke entertainment cabinets in the tradition of fine furniture. Their consoles combine time honored analog electronics with digital technology to deliver audiophile quality sound enriching the connection between the listener and their music. The collection is designed to provide distinctive audio and entertainment furniture for the design and quality oriented consumer. SYMBOL was founded in 2012 by designer Blake Tovin as a personal project to address the lack of engaging solutions for entertainment and audio furniture. Tovin has designed for numerous leading manufactures and retailers such as Crate & Barrel, Restoration Hardware and many others. He brings 25 years of product design and branding experience to the company and in the short time since the company was launched has established SYMBOL audio as a design leader in the audio furniture category.
The design of SYMBOL’s Stereo Console is in response to the reemergence of vinyl records and the broad availability of high grade streaming audio technologies. This unique product blends old school analog and modern digital technologies into a unique piece of furniture, allowing the user to play all of their audio sources through a single beautifully designed piece of furniture. Proudly made in America and produced in a variety of finish combinations, the Stereo Console gives consumers and design professionals the ability to tailor the look to suit a range of interiors. Available in two heights; 33” console table and 24” media console, the powdercoated steel base accommodates optional component and record storage bins to further customize the design to satisfy the users individual needs.
