The Hidden Radio is a beautiful example of design pared down to its core. Embodying a next to nothing fusion of form and function, all the controls for this radio are seamlessly built into its structure. No knobs, sliders, dials or screens are visible. Instead, by moving the lid up, volume is increased, and by turning it, the user can tune in radio stations. A small LED light indicates signal strength.

the surfboards frame is cut from 16.6 square feet of cardboard and covered in transparent fiberglass
image © brian klutch
mike sheldrake surfer and former web programmer has designed a cardboard surfboard,
using 3d modelling software. each cardboard slat is cut using a computer controlled saw.
when each slat is snapped together the slats form hexagonal and triangular patterns,
giving the board its structural strength. to make the board waterproof sheldrake used the
same methods used for traditional surfboards, wrapping it in fibreglass cloth hardened with
epoxy resin. sheldrake is still experimenting with materials, to make the board lighter before
he puts into manufacture.

Down at the Truman Brewery right next door to LBI's front door there is a temporary lighting exhibit (very temp- 2 days long!)
which is showcasing 8 containers filled with lighting concepts by celebrated world designers. I popped along last night and it is really interesting, especially the LED technology involved. It is open for today only and is worth a look and you can also pop your head in the LBI reception and take a look at that too.
Enjoy. Beam me up. Scottie

a minimalist installation by realities:united that acts as a light sign, an information carrier, and a light source at the same time. 2 digits of 7-segment display, formed using industrial fluorescent tubes, are suspended from the ceiling. as a "display", the installation is used to show the current time in minutes.
