Capelinha is a nickname given to every radio that had its forms alluding to chapels or cathedrals. This nickname ended up being incorporated to all radios that had similar shapes, this is the case of this copy of Philco. Its aesthetic characteristics are Art Deco style, which keeps simple geometric lines, with slightly rounded ends. The radio, followed by television, the computer, etc., are ways of connecting, from the domestic space, with the world. The piece is part of the MCB Collection.
