Solid Like a Rock: Thorax Lowboard A/V Rack
Thorax offers three types of concrete building blocks—four-sided, three-sided, and three-sided with a component shelf in the middle—which makes possible a number of mix-and-match configurations: with or without component shelves, with the open area facing the front or side (pictured), and with the concrete elements aligned straight (pictured) or in an arc. The rack shown here measures approximately 20 x 62 x 20 inches and comprises five concrete elements on either side of a central section made up of five shelving units.
Designer Rafael Cichy says the heavy mass of concrete makes the rack ideally suited for audio gear—especially a turntable setup. In other words, you won’t have to worry about vibrations interfering with your musical enjoyment. Thorax racks are designed to be assembled on the spot, and you can count on getting a thorough workout while assembling one.
Racks are priced at $476 per concrete element, so the rack shown would cost $7,140 (plus international shipping). E-mail inquiries are welcome.
