The Museum of Industry wanted to celebrate a significant local story of a company with an internationally reputation for quality. The story takes place in the 1960s and 70s so the design was inspired by the aesthetics of the period and the exceptional styling of the Clairtone stereos. The exhibit will be on display in the museum’s temporary gallery until January, 2017.
