Arkay Fantasia

A soaring wing section gives a new look to this combination hi-fi and television console, shown at the High Fidelity Music Show in New York, Oct. 9, 1959. The wing section, which swivels in any direction, houses a 21 inch TV set and a full range hi-fi stereo speaker system. The sides of the long cabinet repeat the angles of the wing section. A drop door conceals the equipment. The ultra modern console is named “Fantasia” and is manufactured by Arkay, inspired by the Komet. (AP Photo/Dan Grossi).
