With the introduction of its new ACCENT line of advanced component studio furniture for radio, Arrakis once again has redefined the standard for quality and beauty. The metal structure is artfully integrated into the visible design decor of the cabinetry, creating an even more durable and attractive studio. As the result, ACCENT is a contemporary blend of brushed metals, pleasing colors, and interesting textures. Cabinetry and electronic equipment complement each other in such a way as to create a bold visual environment for talent, guests, and clients alike.

ACCENT is available in standard models as well as custom configurations. The hybrid metal frame & structural panel design combined with Arrakis’ state of the art CNC manufacturing systems easily tailors the final product to fit your exact studio’s size and shape. Simply choose the colors and textures to match your decor, and let us do the rest.

 

Decades of Experience

Arrakis Systems has been a leader in studio furniture products for radio since the late 1970s.

Thousands of studios have been designed, manufactured, and sold by Arrakis Systems. Our studios can be found around the world and in every size market, from New York to Italy to Tahiti.

Because of its origins in the console market, Arrakis pioneered the metal post and wood panel

construction found in most high end radio studio furniture in use today. The internal metal structure dramatically improved manufacturing tolerances and made high quality modularity possible. Arrakis’ wood products manufacturing facility is world class, including a large capacity CNC (computerized numerical control) router for complex geometries and surfaces.

 

More than just a studio

A radio studio is more than simply a collection of electronic equipment and technical furniture, it is the stage on which live programs are performed & recorded programs are created. It is where form and function meet in a way to foster creativity and productivity. The electronic tools for talent must be easily accessible and close at hand while the support electronics is equally accessible by engineers for maintenance or repair. With the introduction of its new ACCENT line of advanced component studio furniture for radio, Arrakis meets these design goals in a new and unique way. The metal structure is artfully integrated into the visible design decor of the cabinetry, creating a remarkably durable and attractive studio. Whether configured for live air with a board operator, adding a guest or two, or a full host-cohost-multiguest talk show, the Arrakis ACCENT line can meet your exact studio needs.

 

ACCENT is available in standard models as well as custom configurations.
