They currently offer the genius Seeing Sound t-shirts, the simple & beautiful Pitch Control modular record shelves, & two styles of awesome 45 adapters (one in wood and one laser cut from old records.)
Phonographic Unlimited, and its products, are the brainchild of DJ / Designer Matt Braun.
From Phonographic Unlimited:
Phonographic Unlimited is a small company that produces well-designed products influenced by music and DJ cultures. The beginning product line includes T-shirts, shelving and 45 adapters.
The company is currently based in Philadelphia and has a flexible business model that will allow it to scale up or even relocate and retain a locally produced production strategy. This is possible by designing products that can be made in small quantities using easily accessible traditional and digital fabrication methods.
Seeing Sound T-shirts are your favorite songs visualized by translating the song into a 3d CAD file, then tracing the contour lines & editing them to create the final graphic.
The slight pitch allows for records, books or magazines to lean naturally and prevent warping. The simple geometry and modernist aesthetic allows these to be configured in many ways to suit a variety of shelving needs and even as seating! Very few shelving systems for home use have large enough openings for records or can withstand the weight. The shelves are handmade in Philadelphia using high quality birch plywood and stainless steel fasteners.
This very limited edition run of wooden global adapters are lovingly crafted from walnut using both traditional and digital milling techniques. They are then hand finished and packaged in a black faux suede pouch. The vinyl are adapters are laser cut from junk 12″s in the traditional “3 snakes” style.
