State of the Art

The latest in toys and technology

Retro Style
The Brionvega Radiofonografo Radio and Turntable revives a 1965 design by Italian architects (and brothers) Achille and Pier Giacomo Castiglioni. Made of hand-lacquered wood with an aluminum stand, the conversation piece recalls the golden age of hi-fi. Speakers can be configured on either side of the unit (pictured above) or stacked on top; as shown, the piece is 48 inches wide and 28 inches tall. $9,950; store.moma.org

On the Dark Side
The Cullinan SUV is the latest Rolls-Royce model to join the brand’s Black Badge family—typified by multiple layers of paint and lacquer that create a dramatically dark exterior finish. The Black Badge Cullinan features 22-inch forged-alloy wheels and a 6.75-litre, V12 engine that generates more power and torque than its standard sibling. It excels from 0 to 60 mph in 4.9 seconds. From $382,000; rolls-royce.com

Smarter Smart Watch
Japanese-based Veldt has unveiled the Luxture Aarde analog smart watch with an eye on sustainability and promoting tech-life balance. Straps are made of eco-friendly materials; among many functions, the watches send users UV and climate-action alerts and track health, lunar phases—and proximity to street art.
