Retro designs outfitted with modern technology may not be a new concept, but that doesn’t mean the Slice DAB radio won’t be coveted by anyone who happens to stumble upon it. A sleek, slim stereo with traditional touches like dial knobs and a wooden body, it is certainly attention-grabbing.

Designed by Sam Aylott, the Slice DAB radio may boast some elegant elements that were seen back in the 70s such as its steel handle, which contrasts nicely with the laminated wood material below it; nevertheless, it includes some rather hi-tech details as well. For instance, images and text will be displayed on one of the knobs. Therefore, the Slice DAB radio doesn’t let itself get lost entirely in the novelty of a bygone era.
