Disco Volante is a new wall-mounted turntable by Swedish designer Oscar Olsson, which brings a retro-futuristic touch to your home. With an elegant design and technological advancement, this turntable combines ancient analog technology with modern digital solutions, creating a unique musical experience.

In a world where digital technology dominates at every turn, the rise of vinyl record sales is a real sensation. People are rediscovering the charm of analog sound, which is reflected in the boom in various turntable systems. But most of these systems take up a lot of space. This is where Oscar Olsson comes in with his innovative Disco Volante record player, which not only saves space, but also adds style to it.

Disco Volante, which means "flying saucer" in Italian, is designed to elegantly float vinyl records in space. Olsson found inspiration in famous designers such as Ettore Sottsass and Dieter Rams. It is constructed of aluminum and is available in colors such as black, orange, yellow and green. Olsson explains that the main design feature is "the sharp contrast between the organic and lively housing for the handle and the rational and geometric metal framework".​​

The Disco Volante wall record player is not only an aesthetic addition, but also a technical innovation. With a minimalist design and an open design reminiscent of skeleton watches, it allows a view of all the components that make it work. This not only saves space, but also creates a center of attention in any room​​.

Disco Volante combines analog and digital. The gramophone is connected to mobile devices, which enables easy control via the phone. Users can adjust settings wirelessly, increasing the usability and modern vinyl listening experience. The steel construction provides a solid base, while the plastic handle housing brings playfulness to the overall design.
