the radio log

solène le goff and christophe gouache have designed a ‘green’ radio, made from a rough, oak wood log. a long, thing solar panel is attached to the top of the radio generating energy to power it. energy man produces using a dynamo – the bottom left button in which one can fit a finger is also used to make the radio function. no battery or electrical wires are needed.the top left button turns the radio ‘on’ and allows one to change the volume, while the top right button changes the radio frequencies. wanting to discriminate the use of plastics or metals and focus on raw, natural materials, 80% of the radio is made from wood, while the other 20% is made from common components used to make the radio work.
