  • Sorry Second Design Intersection Post



    I think there is a direct design intersection between the physical form and the function of this radio. It works like a radio except that the housing invokes feelings of nostalgia and comfort. By using a natural wood material for the entire piece, the interaction between the user and the object completely changes.

    For the one piece, I think by turning a wooden knob instead of one made from plastic the user will have a better tactile response to this product. Not only does it feel natural, but eventually through use, oil from the hands of the owner will leave a permanent impression in the wood. I think its successful because first of all, I want one, and second of all I think it allows people to cherish it more. Notice the ipod compatibility and the antennae being made from wood as well. I really like this product.
