The Magno AM/FM Medium Radio designed by Singgih Kartono is Pursuitist Recommended. Available from Areaware, the AM/FM radio is made from naturally harvested wood.
Hand-crafted in an Indonesian farming village, the Magno AM/FM radio has an appealing mix of retro and modern styling. Made from new growth wood, for every tree that is used in production, a new one is planted. Its uncoated surface should be oiled periodically to encourage a deeper connection between user and object. MP3 compatible, with short wave reception.
“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. ” — Singgih Kartono
