Product Description

The KuBO wooden radio design is also based off a running production radio made by a well known electronics company in Indonesia. After my initial idea to recreate the ReKTO wooden radio, using wooden materials and resources from my home village, I also thought KuBO would make a little brother for ReKTO. Like the original motivation for ReKTO it also had a nice basic configuration (size, position of knobs, frequency display etc.) as well as a great sound. I thought it would be great if I could redesign it not just to produce a new appearance, but to also produce it in my home village out of sustainable materials.

With all of my designs I have in my mind to design products that will have a long life cycle, hopefully timeless… basic shapes with a perfect proportion in the whole as well as good in proportion of the individual parts are the foundation of my designs. In KuBO I combine wood with fabric for the back & front panels. Fabric & wood give a warmer & friendly expression compared to plastic or metal. I am very proud of the lock system for the battery compartment, simple yet beautiful. KuBO is also completed with an auxiliary connector, so you can also use it as a speaker with your smart phone or mp3 player. We also added an External Antenna and its port. It uses 6V DC power, you can use battery as well as external power input. All technical information is included in the User’s Manual inside of the package.
