I was never too impressed with the artistic attributes exuded by the exterior of the old radio. My granny owned one and it looked pretty much like a raggedly and dusty old box of wood and cardboard and smelt like medicines for some odd reason. Anywho, if you are a sucker for nostalgia and love all things retro, the new radio-inspired collection by designer Ewa Bochen is just what the doctored ordered for you. Created especially for the DNY Berlin 2008, the collection brings out the iconic status of the everyday object while representing the power of the media, the loneliness of an individual in a modern society and the pervasive need for belonging to a community. I especially love the fact that these items look like a huge cross with an antenna to beam a direct prayer to the Lord himself perhaps, which makes it look like a lame attempt at trying to capture the essense of made-for-media-evangelism. Although I have no freaggin’ idea what these object are supposed to be, I certainly would love to gift one to my annoying neighbors just to accentuate their space-management problems!
