Vintage Clairtone Project G Stereo System for Sale

Sleek, sculptural and impossibly alluring, the Clairtone Project G, a modular Space Age–style stereo system, was a big hit for the audiophiles of yesteryear. Manufactured during what we now know as the era of mid-century modernism, a console stereo such as the Clairtone Project G encased in exotic dark woods might have been the centerpiece of your (sunken) living room. Frank Sinatra and Playboy magazine founder Hugh Hefner were big fans of the system when it debuted in 1964, and today, Lebron James owns a vintage Project G.

At nearly seven feet in length and resting on a solid aluminum swivel base, the Project G stereo was introduced by an electronics company called Clairtone Sound Corporation Limited, in Toronto, Canada, in 1964. It was designed by Hugh Spencer and features a turntable and receiver inside a comely Brazilian-rosewood cabinet that mirrors the celebrated case pieces crafted by the day’s Scandinavian modernists.

Positioned on either side of the console — and markedly, outside the cabinet, which was revolutionary at the time — are oversize satellite-like sphere-shaped speakers made of spun aluminum. With rotating capability, the speakers promise state-of-the-art sound during any kind of party. The experience came with a hefty price tag, so Clairtone introduced a less expensive iteration — the Clairtone Project G2 — in 1966.

Although fewer than 400 models were manufactured, the Clairtone Project G was featured in Time magazine and won a silver medal at the 1964 Milan Triennale. Vintage audio lovers also don’t need to look too closely to find Project G series models in films such as The Graduate and Zabriskie Point.

Find a vintage Clairtone Project G stereo and other 1960s stereo consoles today on 1stDibs.

A Close Look at Mid-Century Modern Furniture

Organically shaped, clean-lined and elegantly simple are three terms that well describe vintage mid-century modern furniture. The style, which emerged primarily in the years following World War II, is characterized by pieces that were conceived and made in an energetic, optimistic spirit by creators who believed that good design was an essential part of good living.

MID-CENTURY MODERN FURNITURE DESIGNERS TO KNOW

ICONIC MID-CENTURY MODERN FURNITURE DESIGNS

VINTAGE MID-CENTURY MODERN FURNITURE ON 1STDIBS

The mid-century modern era saw leagues of postwar American architects and designers animated by new ideas and new technology. The lean, functionalist International-style architecture of Le Corbusier and Bauhaus eminences Ludwig Mies van der Rohe and Walter Gropius had been promoted in the United States during the 1930s by Philip Johnson and others. New building techniques, such as “post-and-beam” construction, allowed the International-style schemes to be realized on a small scale in open-plan houses with long walls of glass.

Materials developed for wartime use became available for domestic goods and were incorporated into mid-century modern furniture designs. Charles and Ray Eames and Eero Saarinen, who had experimented extensively with molded plywood, eagerly embraced fiberglass for pieces such as the La Chaise and the Womb chair, respectively. 

Architect, writer and designer George Nelson created with his team shades for the Bubble lamp using a new translucent polymer skin and, as design director at Herman Miller, recruited the Eameses, Alexander Girard and others for projects at the legendary Michigan furniture manufacturer

Harry Bertoia and Isamu Noguchi devised chairs and tables built of wire mesh and wire struts. Materials were repurposed too: The Danish-born designer Jens Risom created a line of chairs using surplus parachute straps for webbed seats and backrests.

The Risom lounge chair was among the first pieces of furniture commissioned and produced by celebrated manufacturer Knoll, a chief influencer in the rise of modern design in the United States, thanks to the work of Florence Knoll, the pioneering architect and designer who made the firm a leader in its field. The seating that Knoll created for office spaces — as well as pieces designed by Florence initially for commercial clients — soon became desirable for the home.

As the demand for casual, uncluttered furnishings grew, more mid-century furniture designers caught the spirit.

Classically oriented creators such as Edward Wormley, house designer for Dunbar Inc., offered such pieces as the sinuous Listen to Me chaise; the British expatriate T.H. Robsjohn-Gibbings switched gears, creating items such as the tiered, biomorphic Mesa table. There were Young Turks such as Paul McCobb, who designed holistic groups of sleek, blond wood furniture, and Milo Baughman, who espoused a West Coast aesthetic in minimalist teak dining tables and lushly upholstered chairs and sofas with angular steel frames.

Generations turn over, and mid-century modern remains arguably the most popular style going. As the collection of vintage mid-century modern chairs, dressers, coffee tables and other furniture for the living room, dining room, bedroom and elsewhere on 1stDibs demonstrates, this period saw one of the most delightful and dramatic flowerings of creativity in design history.
