It doesn't have fancy display system and a bazillion buttons to push, but the Naked Radio by Simon Hasan managed to capture the essence of cool with minimal parts.
It’s made from unusual materials such as porcelain, walnut, stainless steel, brass, and yes, that’s a speaker grill made from lace. You control the volume by turning the speaker. The frequency is selected by rotating the antenna. It’s too bad that Hasan has only made one of these, because I’m sure that they’d sell to those with an eye for unusual design.
