The Naked Radio

Simon Hasan is an british industrial designer that brings us this "Naked Radio"; infused with richness, textures and obscure crafts techniques.

It looks like an experimental item, like a table lamp that was re-purposed to provide another task, different from the one it was originally designed for.

A vertical assemble goes against the typical layout, freeing the structure of being confined to a horizontal medium. Functions are controlled by the corresponding component: Volume, by turning the speaker; tuning is achieved by moving the antenna.

Different materials and textures gives this radio an immediate vintage appeal, The lace speaker grill, porcelain base and walnut wood, gives a nice Victorian punch; while the brass and stainless steel places the radio on the 21st century.
