Singgih Susilo Kartono, designer of the eco-icon Magno wooden radio has launched his first new product since 2006. Asked why it took so long to develop something new Kartono points out: “I try to hold myself to not produce too much design works, as ultimately design works will become such waste. So, my challenge as a designer now is how to create as little design as possible with as high quality as possible.”
This minimal clock is beautifully handcrafted in several working hours in Javanese village Temanggung (Central Java) in the original workshop of the Magno-team using naturally harvested Pine and Rosewood. Kartono wants to dedicate parts of the benefit to build up a “creativity center” for children in his village.
