These are the pictures I took at the Design Museum, London, UK in 2010. The last 3 pictures I took from the references written in the last paragraph 😉

Singgih Susilo Kartono is the designer and manufacturer of the wooden radio, which is crafted piece-by-piece in 16 hours. During his study of product design in Bandung/Indonesia he developed the creative base which he realised afterwards by implementing new work methods and new ideas of production. Today he works with 30 young craftsmen in his home village Temanggung in a remote area in Central Java. His company secures the income of local families and gives the young workers a professional perspective combined with fair social standards. Kartono pays a lot of attention on his long term orientated ecological goals and the involvement of the locals. During production each member of Singgih’s team uses two trees each year – making a total of 80 trees a year. Due to a tree nursery on the production ground more than 8000 trees are being planted in Temanggung and its surrounding which shows that a wood manufacturer can be a forest creator as well. This shows how creative Indonesians are in designing products ;) References: http://www.wooden-radio.com/gb/downloads/Catalogue_wooden_radio_2011.pdf http://www.wooden-radio.com/gb/index.php The official website: http://www.magno-design.com/
