as part of the designers in residence program at the london design museum, japanese designer yuri suzuki has collaborated with  technology will save us to create ‘denki puzzle’. by exploring communication systems in consumer electronics, they have facilitated the accessibility to technology and user interaction. using a kit of bespoke printed circuit board (PCB) components, each individual part retains a unique shape which visually represents its function and can be built to form working appliances such as a radio or lighting systems. through the process of assembly, an understanding and  appreciation of the building blocks of more complex technologies is gained.
