Tykho Rubber Radio
This product was featured on the cover of Time magazine in March, 2000 as the quintessential representation of modern product design. Tykho is a wonderful example of design derived from the properties of a material. The radio also has a simplified aesthetic, partnered with user friendly functionality. Water proof, with a silicon rubber casing, this radio looks great and feels even better. The antennae doubles as the station tuner, and the volume controls are push buttons located on the front of the radio.
