Kangaroo stand for audio 1 with record compartment module.
The concept of the system stand provided an alternative form to the dissolution of categorial distinctions between audio and furniture design brought about by the integration of audio elements within living room storage systems. The latter fused the audio 1 and Vitsoe Universal Shelving System not only physically but also at the level of their formal, material and aesthetic principles. The Kangaroo stand extended this continuity between the audio system and furniture in another form. The leg of the stand shared a profile and working height with that of the 601 seating programme, such that both the Kangaroo stand and 601 design might be viewed, not as separate audio and seating systems, but as elements belonging to the same system.
