Description

Hand-crafted in an Indonesian farming village, the Magno AM/FM mp3 radio has an appealing mix of retro and modern styling. Made from new growth wood, for every tree that is used in production, a new one is planted. The Magno radio has an uncoated surface that should be oiled periodically to encourage a deeper connection between user and object. Designer Singgih Kartono chooses wood for his radios not just based on aesthetics but on his appreciation of wood's simplicity and organic vitality. The Magno radio combines the most current AM/FM, two shortwave bands and mp3 player compatible electronics with sustainably grown woods.

Features

  • Designed by Singgih Kartono
  • Constructed from young growth sustainable ebony wood - for every tree that is used in production, a new one is planted. The amount of wood replanted and selected is based on yearly wood consumption, suitable age for wood to be grown and cut, and the requirement of land per tree.
