This Year at Basel World we were surprised with an amazing timepeace from the artists of MB&F, Melchior. Now for their 10th anniversary, yet another great piece, Music Machine N0. 3
MB&F celebrates its 10th anniversary this year with the tagline “A creative adult is a child who survived”. One film that marked our childhood was Star Wars… MusicMachine 3 is unmistakably inspired by the saga’s legendary TIE-Fighters, and naturally plays the Star Wars theme – but this Machine’s twin cylinders will also play the unforgettable themes from James Bond, Mission Impossible, The Godfather, Merry Christmas Mr. Lawrence and The Persuaders.
Created by MB&F, MusicMachine 3 may appear to come from a galaxy far, far away; however, its origins are much older and closer to home. The engineering and manufacturing are the works of Reuge – quite simply the only remaining luxury music box manufacturer in the world. Impeccably finished, MusicMachine 3 features all the traditional elements of a beautifully arranged, high-end mechanical music box. Its striking lateral wings play a vital role in transmitting sound vibrations from the twin movements to the naturally amplifying resonant base, manufactured by JMC Lutherie. The result is revolutionary: beautiful sound, louder and richer than any other comparable music box.
MusicMachine 3 is a limited edition of 99 pieces, including 33 pieces with white finish, 33 in black, and 33 ‘chrome’ pieces.
