The Log Radio

by Christophe Gouache
Co-authors: Solene Le Goff

We decided to create and design a solar powered radio that is made out of a single log. The whole radio is made out of wood. In order to keep the form of the log, all the buttons have been shaped and designed so that they match with the cylindrical form of the trunk. The back and front pieces are assembled to the cynlinder with wood dowels. Using the solar power and a dynamo (the button in the bottom left) the radio does not waste or use any polluting energy. The idea is to get inspired by nature.
