The Cube & Rect wooden radio are design base on a running production radio made by a well known electronic industry in Indonesia. When I saw it for the first time, the original radio has a nice basic configuration (size, position of knobs, frequency display etc.) as well as produce good sound. I think it will be great if I can redesign it not just to produce new appearance, but it will able to produce in my home village. I am so sure that a mutual collaboration between big company who provide a high-quality electronic part with a well developed crafts activity will give many benefits for both parties.
I always put in my mind to design products that will have a long life cycle, hopefully timeless basic shape with a perfect proportion in the whole as well as good in proportion of its parts are the foundation of my design. I combine the wood with fabric for back & front panel. Fabric covering the structure but it pass the sound comes from inside. Fabric & wood give a warmer & friendly expression compare to plastic or metal. I love the lock system for the battery case, simple but yet beauty.
