Project: The Monkey
Disciplines: Industrial Design
The unique feature of this radio / speaker is the ingenious snap-on antenna with its spring metal core. It offers two iconic positions, enabling The Monkey to be used in two different ways.
With the antenna in straight position it is a static object. And it playfully becomes your mobile companion with the antenna clinging around handles, tubes and any other branches of the urban jungle. Never mind if the radio programme sucks — just switch to the bluetooth mode and enjoy your favourite music.
As part of a six month internship at the Hannover based Design Consultancy RSW Design (former DING 3000), amongst other Projects, I was involved in the developmental process of designing »The Monkey«.
