Don’t you just love a contradiction of materials? Take the Hybrid Radio designed by Mathieu Lehanneur for Lexon for example, who would have ever thought that rattan could look so modern, sleek and sexy?!
Launched at Maison&Objet trade fair 2014 in late january, this radio is the unusual combination of plastic and woven rattan, a detail used by the designer to reference ancient crafts and the latest technology. Can the two coexist in this modern world? If this is the result, I think the answer is a resounding YES!!!
The radio is available in two versions, AM / FM Radio or DAB+/FM radio and also features bluetooth connectivity which allows you to play your music wirelessly. The radio can be powered by AA batteries making it portable and is available in your colour choice of white or graphite.
