Kunstformen der Natur (1904) by Ernst Haeckel

Achille Castiglioni and his brother Pier Giacomo designed the "RR126" stereo system (1965) which was meant to be a "musical pet," and was considered to be one of his "Expressionistic Objects." The dials and controls form the shape of a face, with the speakers as ears (see anthropomorphism). This design, for Brionvega, was free standing, with casters to make it mobile, and the speakers folded up when not in use, to make the design more compact. It is on display at the Pinakothek der Moderne, Munich, Europe.
