celia torvisco + raphael pluvinage: conductive ceramic radio

‘hibou gilded ceramic radio’ by celia torvisco + raphael pluvinage
final prototype being tested: volume controls

 

 

created by french designers celia torvisco and raphaël pluvinage, the body of the hibou gilded ceramic radio is adorned using a fine palladium paint that has conductive properties. the metallic patterns are not only ornamental elements but play a functional role in the object. each motif matches a particular setting : on/off, volume and frequency. the graphic designs are drawn in accordance to certain technological constraints. for example, creating a figure with a long thin line allows for more accurate sound control. all three impressions are painted across the radio surface, where users can modulate each setting with a smooth interactive gesture.
