FM Radio for Sailing Enthusiasts
Analyzing and reflecting the brand values of Suunto through form, color and funcionality and building a fully working radio prototype was the goal of the project. The electronics were taken from an existing radio in the market.. This created a challenge in building the design around the existing electronics, doing reverse engineering yet implementing the Suunto core values.
Turn it on, pump the volume up, listen to your favourite station! Sail away, get wet, enjoy and turn it off for a second round.
