A new limited edition incarnation of Ruark Audio’s iconic R1 sees the exquisitely engineered and crafted radio wrapped in luxurious material from quintessential upmarket British interiors brand Osborne & Little. The striking finish has been developed from a wallpaper design in Osborne & Little’s Spring 2015 Collection called Melo. The pale aqua and soft grey colourway of the exclusive new R1 radio are both distinctive and eye-catching, yet elegant and timeless.

Despite the differing nature of their products, Ruark and Osborne & Little share a similar company ethos. Both British family firms have a reputation for innovation and exceptional quality, while the pair continue to push forward boundaries to maintain their hard-won reputation for excellence, whether in the form of Ruark Audio’s striking R7 radiogram or Osborne & Little’s use of holographic papers.

Founded in the 1960s by Peter Osborne and his brother-in-law Antony Little, Osborne & Little has been producing an award-winning array of stylish fabrics, weaves and wallpapers for the past four decades.

The new £200, limited edition Osborne & Little R1 offers DAB/DAB+/FM radio transmission, meaning the R1 is future-proofed for any transmission upgrades. In addition to its excellent radio performance, the R1 has an internal Bluetooth receiver to stream music wirelessly from smartphones and tablets. Both provide an expansive and natural sound that makes music all the more enjoyable. Other key features include an improved RotoDial control system and OLED display, as well as a comprehensive dual alarm clock and USB charge port, making the R1 the perfect tabletop and bedside companion. Meanwhile, the optional tan leather CarryPack and BatteryPack let you enjoy your Ruark on the move.
