Indonesian product designer Singgih Kartono has taken a decidedly different approach in creating his Magno Radio. Not being driven by the market, or money, Kartono has spent 13 years developing and fine-tuning his device.  In his philosophy of  “slow design”, he aims to create a classic, culturally relevant device that would not just be “an object”, but a meaningful part of someone’s life.

Asia Pacific News reports:

The radios are made from Pinewood, Mahogany and Albasia – wood from trees indigenous to Indonesia. And Singgih plants a replacement tree for each one he uses.
